As in most homes, candy has a very important place in our family life. Whether it is a snack for the kids to take with them to school, or just something to nosh on when there is nothing else to do, for those of us not "health conscious"-candy is what we look for. Over the past few months some really great nosh has made its way into our office ? here are the four we most enjoyed.

Twenty years ago only a handful of kosher wines were produced in Italy and, to tell the truth, most of those were pretty mediocre. Starting about five years ago, however, as those who keep kashrut became increasingly aware of quality wines, Italian producers responded and enormous strides have been made.

Perhaps the most exciting recent step in kosher Italian wines is the introduction of truly excellent wines from the Falesco winery in the Umbria region.
Now that my son has graduated from mashed entrées of sweet potatoes and carrots to grown-up grub, it's back in the kitch for me!
The other day my son called me from yeshiva ? just to chat. As usual, I asked about his day and of course, like any good mother ? "How's the food?" His response was "Pretty good," but that there are days that he doesn't eat supper because he doesn't like what they serve. I felt bad, but what could I do? He doesn't have a refrigerator, microwave or oven, so I can't send him food from home or even packaged meals ? can I?

There are two popular wine-related beliefs making the rounds these days, both of which deserve to be put to rest because they are nothing more than pure and unadulterated nonsense. The first of these would have us believe that men are better qualified to taste wine than women, and the second that some wines are more appropriate for men and others for women.
There are two primary forms of measuring when it comes to cooking, and our goal is to wean you away from both of them to the greatest extent possible. (There is also a third form of measuring, but doing without it can be risky and, based on my own disaster-stories, I don’t advise it.)
I decided to twist things up a bit and turn tzimmes into a satisfying main dish.
