This is dedicated to the one I love.

60 Songs from the 60s That Make you Want To Twist And Shout

Growing up, my dad would play the hits of The Beatles, The Monkees, and other 60s artists. I was surrounded by music from the 60s and I did not even know it. It was not until a few years ago, that these songs started popping up in my playlists and I fell in love. Not only was I recognizing songs from my childhood, but I was falling in love with the music simply because it was and is perfect. I will take this so-called 'oldies' music over anything being produced today. So now, I share with you, 60 songs of the 60s that will truly make you want to twist and shout.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines.
