You Still Need To Make Time For Dinner

DOBBS FERRY, NY (WCBS 880) – School is back in session and the kids have soccer, but still, one Westchester County woman says you need to make time for dinner!

LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Catherine Cioffi reports

With her dog Iris at her feet and her children’s pictures hanging on the refrigerator behind her, Jenny Rosenstrach is busy blogging from her Dobbs Ferry kitchen about what she made last night for dinner.

“The blog is, you know, of course, there is going to be recipes, but a lot of it is sort of pep-talks,” Rosenstrach tells WCBS 880 reporter Catherine Cioffi.

Her blog, Dinner: A Love Story, grew out of the book she co-wrote – “Time for Dinner”.

She says her message is clear: cook, sit down, and eat with your family.

She says, “Yes, of course, dinner is an albatross around all of our necks, but it’s also can be fun if you approach it the right way.”

  • Proud Family

    It amazes me that it is like anew discovery that it is important to sit down to a meal with your children. We have raised two daughters, now 18 and 23, and we always try to eat together, even if it needs to be later. Everyone tells us it is impossible to do, but we are busy and have found a way to do it. It is a priority for us and we very rarely miss. My girls are not perfect but I am sure our meals together have kept them away from finding love in the wrong places. I thank God for this gift..

    If you’re getting home at 8 pm and the kids need to be in bed by 8:30, there’s not much time to cook dinner and eat as a family. Let alone blod about it. Sorry!

  • No longer hungry

    Wow! This is so informative. I’ve always wondered why I felt so hungry in the evening: Dinner – that’s why! That’s what was missing. I feel so foolish. Thank you CBS, you’re doing god’s work.
