PB & J Shachar's Way


Tell 'em to take a number, because they'll be waiting in line for these.  A new spin on a traditional favorite, this is peanut butter and jelly with a healthier twist.  Use your favorite natural peanut butter and pair it with your choice of marmalade, and settle them in between two slices of millet instead of white bread.  Packed with protein, this was a natural combination with millet's slightly nutty flavor.

I had to give up my piece to a wide-open eyed child who scooped it right up.  Healthy, Delicious, that's the way to go, or in the words of the wide-open eyed child:  "yummissimo, buonissimo, funissimo!"  Can't beat that.

The Good Life


What a beautiful morning!  A simply divine breakfast, nature's goodness, in a snap.  As you know, Sunday, I made a 3-day batch of granola (I store it in the fridge), so with the almost-last serving, I sprinkled it on fresh-cut pineapple.  Say with emphasis: Dee-lish!
Folks, get your food game on, keep it good, keep it real, keep it unprocessed.  All kosher, all the time.  We're talkin' good stuff here........for your taste buds and your bod & soul!

Hashem Makes Such Great Things


Grab the bread of your choice and fill it up with delectable beauties like these, or just jump on over to gam gam goodies, right down from GAM GAM Kosher Restaurant, and we'll make it for you .  A spin-off of my famous breakfast pizza, this one is a looker (and a taster)!  You can easily eat this one too fast, it's so delish, so slow down and get those 20-30 chews in there.  We all know it's very easy to go for another bite before you've completely swallowed 
your current mouthful.  Thumbs up Hashem, this one's a keeper.

Healthy Nosh...No Longer an Oxymoron, No Longer Boring


It's snack, it's nosh, it's healthy, it's HomeMade, it's even breakfast with your choice of milk.  Eat it as you will, this is a sure-fire way to get everyone in the house happy.

Fast, easy & fun to eat, and of course, delicious!  Pure kosher goodness.  Make a large batch, pour into individual portion baggies, and let the troops know it is there.  Everyone can help themselves for breakfast, after-school/mid-day work snack, that long commute.....

Great Granola with Cinnamon, Vanilla & Raisins

For those of you who enjoy Quinoa, (gluten-free, easy digestibility, even trendy), add some in place of some granola, as suits your taste.
