Poppy Seed Lemon Chiffon Cake Revisited!

April 10, 2010 didn't even mark the six month anniversary of my writing and photographing here. That is when I first shared this Poppy Seed Lemon Chiffon cake. I found the recipe in a cookbook Jonathan possessed, when I met him when he was only twenty while studying in Israel. The cookbook was one of his very few belongings. I have baked this cake ever since. It's now a part of our twenty-two year old son's canvas of childhood memories.

Honeyed & Spiced Dried Fruit Compote; A Tu B'Shvat Seder Sweet & Significant

"My mom is inviting you for a Tu B'Shvat Seder."

I had neither heard nor experienced a Tu B'Shvat Seder while growing up in Israel, until my boyfriend at the time when I was 17, extended the invitation. I was perplexed at the custom as well as his parents' gesture.
