Healing as Best We Can


14 Tishrei, 5778

It's hours before the freedom festival of Sukot begins, and I remain miserable to know of the suffering once again inflicted on innocents enjoying a concert. Terrorists simply despise fun and happiness.

I've been at a loss to know what sort of message to post at this blog. Sympathies abound worldwide. So, since we're in this together, I've decided to make my message unique by sharing two recipes that build strong bodies and minds, the better for weathering emotional storms. They're already cooling on my kitchen counters so I can share them over the holiday. Make these yourself and we can enjoy them together, so to speak.

Seed Crackers (full of nourishing Omega-3 and gluten-free!)

1 half cup each of sesame, chia and flax seeds, (poppy seeds if desired) and enough water (1/2 cup or so) to bind it.

Salt to taste.

Spread the mixture out as thin as possible upon a sheet of oiled baking paper already set up on a baking tray.

Layer with another sheet of baking paper.
Bake at 180 degrees C for 20 minutes or until done.

Sesame Crackers with Almond Flour

Serving Size: 60 crackersPrep Time: 10 minutesCook Time: 12-15 minutes
Cooking Temp: 350°Ingredients:

3 cups almond flour

1 ½ tsp sea salt

1 cup sesame seeds

2 tbsp olive oil

2 eggs


Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, salt, and sesame seeds.

In a medium bowl, mix oil and eggs thoroughly.

Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Divide dough into two pieces. Place dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper. Roll to about 1/16 inch thickness. Remove the top piece of parchment paper and transfer the bottom piece onto a baking sheet. Repeat this for the remaining piece of dough.

Cut the dough into small squares no bigger than 2 inches with a knife or pizza cutter.
Bake 12-15 minutes until lightly golden-brown.
Let cool and enjoy!

PS - A much-loved song written by Naomi Shemer is Shlomit Bona Sukkat Shalom. The title and the song are about building dwellings of genuine peace, and living in peace.

May GOD bless the world at large to dwell in true peace. May emotional agony become a dim memory.

May miracles fill our lives.
