To all my friends and readers who have offered their condolences on the passing of my wonderful mother in November and my dear father in law earlier this month I want to say how much I have appreciated all the cards and emails. While I had to put aside my writing for a while I know that 2017 will be the year where Konfidentiallykosher will show the joy and fun to all my posts and columns have had in the past.

I want to end the year with some reviews and endorsements for the many wonderful items, cookbooks and foods that have made their way into my orbit these past few months that I’ve not been able to share. I hope that if you agree you’ll agree with my next post “THUMBS UP”
