Meir Panim implements programs that serve Israel’s neediest populations with respect and dignity. Meir Panim also coordinated care packages for families in the South during the Gaza War.
It is also the time of year I start receiving requests for “Bubbie Tupperware’s” Chocolate Chip cupcakes. They are guaranteed to soothe little mouths everywhere! This recipe started out as a large round tube cake. Since it was such a nice size cake, I adjusted the size of the initial tube cake into a bundt cake and had enough batter for about12 cupcakes. One Purim, I changed it again to yield more than three-dozen cupcakes! Bake it any way you wish, just adjust the time for cupcakes as noted in the recipe.
My most requested cake is always my Chocolate Bundt cake, which I also usually bake as cupcakes for Chanukah and Purim. Upon reading some of my humorous stories in my cookbook, you will understand why this is so!
When in a hurry, my Six Minute Chocolate is always enjoyed as a fast substitute. My recipe for this cake was featured on The Rachael Ray Show last year. You can find these recipes plus many more in my cookbook, Not Just A Cookbook.
Chocolate Chip Cake
4 cups flour
1 cup oil
1 ½ tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla
1 ½ cups orange juice (or non-dairy milk)
2 ½ cups sugar
5 tsp. baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 10″ tube pan. In a Tupperware “Thatsa Bowl,” cream the sugar and oil. Add eggs, one at a time; add vanilla, mixing well. Add salt, baking powder and flour to mixture alternately with juice. (If you roll chocolate chips in flour first, they won’t fall to the bottom of the cake during baking.) Stir in chocolate chips and mix well. Pour into pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely before cutting. Variation: For 36 cupcakes, bake for 20-25 minutes. Or: Bake in bundt pan and you will still have enough batter for a dozen cupcakes! Delicious plain or add your favorite icing. I usually freeze them first and frost them right before I need them. I find it’s so much easier to put the icing on frozen cupcakes, than when they are freshly baked. Freezes great, in Tupperware containers.

This past summer was a powerful one for the Jewish people. I will always remember where I was on June 12th when I found out that Gilad, Eyal and Naftali were kidnapped. I will always remember the look on my sister’s face on June 30th when she told me that they were found. I will […]
Avromi often put other people’s interests before his own: he would not defend people whom he believed were guilty (even if they were willing to pay him a lot of money).
How can I help my wife learn to say “no,” and understand that her first priority must be her husband and family?
My eyes skimmed an article on page 1A. I was flabbergasted. I read the title again. Could it be? It had good news for the Miami Jewish community.
Students in early childhood, elementary, and middle school were treated to an array of hands-on projects to create sukkah decorations such as wind chimes, velvet posters, sand art, paper chains, and more.
Each student received a brachah and a handshake.

How often does your family ask you: “What’s for dinner?” Here are some great ideas for traditional family favorites simply with a healthy makeover. Instead of being a short-order cook, follow these guidelines to help you prepare nutritious, delicious dinners everyone will enjoy.
It was a brisk fall day in late October some years ago when Chavy (name changed) decided that since the weather was perfect she would walk to work. She had, Baruch Hashem, just resumed her work schedule after being home for six weeks due to her maternity leave for the birth of her latest child. She felt the exercise was good for her, as it was only about a half mile to her job. She put all of her work papers into her knapsack and gingerly swung it over onto her back for the trek to work.
It was an ordinary day and Dovid (name changed) was preparing to catch the late afternoon EL AL flight to Eretz Yisrael. He had yahrzeit for his father and planned his trip so he’d arrive there just in time to join his brother at the kever. He parked his car in the area that facilitated a faster trip to JFK for his flight. Little did he know that he was being observed by a team of thieves who were “working” the Diamond District that day in order to rob the merchants of their goods.
Who said weekday dinners had to be boring? It’s simple to keep the fresh and fun with just a little preparation. Stock your kitchen with staples like whole-wheat pasta, organic fish, poultry, meats, and organic fruits and vegetables (go frozen if you can’t buy fresh).
Normally, I enjoy air travel. But the night before a recent flight to Los Cabos, Mexico, I developed an excruciating earache. I tried nursing it with organic eardrops, but by the time we arrived at the airport, the pain had only intensified.
