BACKGROUND

 Today’s families are beyond busy. Between working parents, extracurricular activities, homework, and shul demands, it’s a modern marvel how anyone today has time to cook and host on Shabbat. But the pressure is on to host beautiful meals and make it look effortless. So, how do people do it? 

Everyone has a few go-to recipes, life hacks, and tricks they rely on to make it through. This book compiles those tried and true recipes with tips and tricks to manage it all.
