Dear Matchmaker Rabbi:

My sister recently lost her husband of 45 years and was thinking of starting to talk to men online just two weeks after his death. Prior to that, they were happily married (according to her own account and everyone who knew them). This seems way, way too fast to me. What is your opinion?

20. Living In An Upside Down World 20. Living In An Upside Down World

One of the things that makes living a meaningful, transformative life difficult is that we live in an upside-down world. What does this mean? Let me give you an example: I recently watched a true crime show where a woman was found murdered in her home. The woman herself, a loving single mother, was completely blameless.

Elegant & Effortless: A Sweet Summer Dessert Recipe

Sometimes, simple is the most sophisticated. For summer desserts, I am looking for fresh flavors, bright colors and less time in the kitchen. A sabayon is a French sauce (zabaglione for Italian version) of eggs, sugar and wine that is whisked to a frothy, creamy consistency. It is elegant spooned over fresh fruit or a simple pound cake. I like to pile the fruit into a beautiful wine glass and layer the fruit and sabayon. Serve immediately or chill for several hours.

I start every meal with a salad. I love the textures and flavors. I also like the way the vinaigrette plays off of each ingredient and makes the flavors POP. The trick to keeping salad interesting is to add a variety of textures and flavors.

Hits & Mrs: Tips For Successful Video Chat Dating Hits & Mrs: Tips For Successful Video Chat Dating
