IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS

by Susan Koslovsky

In less than two weeks we begin observing the holiday of Passover. Many have already begun preparing by cleaning out, organizing, and purchasing the food and supplies necessary to facilitate this holiday. On the top of your list should be my Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe. Just because it’s Passover you do not have to give up this all time favorite. For these cookies to be pareve(free of dairy and milk) and kosher for Passover, make sure to use all ingredients that state “pareve” and “kosher for Passover.” Trust me you’ll love them. They have been a staple in my house for years and years.

Ingredients:

  • • 2 Sticks Margarine Room Temperature
  • • 1 1/2 cups Sugar
  • • 2 Eggs
  • • 1 Tbsp. Orange Juice
  • • 1 1/2 cups Matzoh Cake Meal
  • • 1 tsp. Potato Starch
  • • 1 tsp. Salt
  • • 8 oz. pkg. Chocolate Chips

Preparation:
1. Preheat Oven to 350 degreesF. 2.Grease cookie sheets. 3.Cream margarine and sugar. 4.Add eggs and mix well. 5.Add all ingredients except the chocolate chips. Mix well. 6.Stir In chocolate chips. 7.Drop by tablespoons onto greased cookie sheets 8. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until light brown. Recipe yields about 4 dozen cookies. If you are looking for a dairy recipe then substitute butter for the margarine. This Holiday is NOT about giving up foods you eat during the year. It is about Freedom. Symbolically we eat different foods to reenact the historical times. It is my most favorite holiday of the year for many reasons too numerous to write about here but it suffices to say that it brings together family and friends and the freedoms that we should never take for granted. That is what life is all about and the true treasures and successes we should all be enjoying. For those less fortunate, reach out with money, kindness of words, and the spirit of the holiday. As in most homes for most religions family dinners do revolve around food so make your holiday table fun and festive. Explore new recipes and recreate those past down to you from generations before you. Have a wonderful and kosher Passover holiday.

BUYERS WHY NOT TAKE ADVANTAGE IT’S FREE

by Susan Koslovsky

Where can you get a licensed professional to represent you, spend as much time as necessary, educate you, help you with one of the most important and expensive purchases of your life and not pay 1 dime for it? And if you don’t find what you like… you owe him nothing! As your real estate professionals at Koslovsky Realty, Inc. your agents act as “single agents” representing buyers or sellers. We get paid at the closing, after all the work is done and you are prepared and ready to move in.. Buyers… why waste your time calling multiple agents; do you really think you’ll get a better deal? You definitely should Interview agents and continue to do so until you find one that will work with you and for you! A professional realtor will take all the time necessary to give you the comfort level that the property you have selected is the correct property for you. A true professional would not let you purchase a property that you couldn’t afford. A true professional would not introduce you to a mortgage company that was looking out for their best interest and not yours. A true professional is one who prides him/ herself on a reputation of honesty, integrity and performance. A true professional is one who works for his clients best interest and not his own. A true professional is one who works full time and all the time for his clients. That true professional is Sid Koslovsky, an almost 31 year real estate veteran and the professional agents he associates with in his firm. Ask all the clients he has serviced over the years. See for yourself the reputation he has worked ever so hard to build. Call today for a no obligation interview. See firsthand the difference available to you… and all this at no extra charge!

AD COPY DUE BY MARCH 13TH !!

by Susan Koslovsky

Reprinted Column from March 4, 2012: THE REAL PURPOSE OF AN HONOR On March 20, 2012 my husband and I are being honored by an organization called Chai Lifeline. The mission of Chai Lifeline is to provide emotional and social support to families whose lives have been changed forever by a child’s illness. This organization, with the most incredible volunteers, steps in at the moment of diagnosis with a full range of programs and services to ease the minds and lives of those affected. As all my readers know by now, our granddaughter Noa Maya was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in June 2010. No one should ever know the pain and suffering this sweet, beautiful child has had to endure. No one. The emotional upheaval and life altering burden our children have now been given, cannot adequately be described in words especially by me, as mother and grandmother. Our only solace has been to throw ourselves full force into helping them on any level that they need, and to pay tribute to Chai Lifeline for the unbelievable work this organization does. Last year I waged a full force campaign to raise money through the ad journal. We have been continuous supporters of Chai Lifeline ever since. This year, they have asked us to be the recipients of the Legacy of Hope Award at the Annual Dinner. The only reason we agreed to accept this honor was to serve as a vehicle to bring as many people we know on board to give as generously as you can to this most necessary organization. The emotional support they provide is limitless. You can visit the website at www.chaigala.org to place an ad and navigate through the tabs to read more about Chai Lifeline. We all have our “pet” organizations, and each one of you chooses to support where and when you can. But, I implore you to give something to Chai Lifeline just because I am asking you too. I have tried as best I can to be as generous as I could over the years to your choice of charities, simple because you asked. Now I am doing the same. In the end, you will feel fulfilled, knowing you have done your part. I wish each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts, good health and many blessings in your life. I pray none of you should ever know pain or heartbreak, and above all I wish Noa Maya the most wonderful life she deserves.
