The Final Chapter: Mint Moroccan Tea



Today is the last day of Chanukah, and today is the last post on Everyday Kosher.

Growth is a beautiful thing.

As mothers, we all have our ways to cope, deal with the day to day on a day by day in the hopes of navigating life, transforming and growing.  In 2012, this blog became one of my personal projects, I was a 32 year old single mom of two adorable little girls - 5 and 6 at the time. After a seven year marriage, I went on exploring and sharing the kosher joys of living in Quebec, from scouting honey and lavender farms, markets.. to sharing all kinds of recipes that my heart desired.

Today, I outgrew this blog.  My growth has taken a turn towards new aspirations, projects and innovations, hence the moment has come for me to close the chapter on Everyday Kosher. I spoke from the heart, you listened from the heart, and for this I am forever grateful. Kosher blogging is a beautiful art form, I met amazing and talented people along the way.  I cannot express the extent of respect, admiration I have for fellow kosher bloggers. Thank you for all those who supported and savoured recipes from this blog, please continue to do so.

I conclude this blog with a recipe of mint moroccan tea.. so relax, sip a cup of soothing tea and continue to read through this blog. More importantly though,  continue to gather your families and friends around your table.  Enjoy!
