Happy Chanukah!

It's that time of year again when the holidays begin and the eating makes us all feel good!

I baked these sugar cookies for our family Chanukah dinner. The decorated ones were given to me as a gift from my former student, Rebecca.  She also gave me gorgeous decorated Chanukah cookies last year that tasted just as good as they looked! 

I think that I have perfected making potato latkes! This was my third and final time making them this week.  But all joking aside....they really are delicious. For the recipe I use, click here. This year I added a few pinches of paprika to the mix. It added some flavour and color to the latkes.

Tonight is the fifth night of Chanukah so five candles are lit.
Happy Chanukah!


  1. Happy chanukah! :D
    we also celebrate it tonight, but it's so hard to find chanukah candles in the netherlands :[ we always have to bring them from america or israel.

  2. Happy Chanukah to you and yours.

  3. Happy Chanukah!! :D I hope it is going great!!!
    I love reading your blog! You do some awesome stuff!!

    I have a question. I am a student at Le Cordon Bleu in Pittsburgh, Pa. I work in the library as the editor-in -chief of our schools newspaper and blog. I know you and your husband are fans of Bakerella. And I absolutely love her! I am writing a featured article about her, her blog, and cakepops book. I was wondering how your husband got in contact with her, when he wanted to propose to you.

    I hope this doesn't sound weird or anything. I just don't have anywhere else to turn to try to get in contact with her.

    I hope you can help, because it would be awesome if I could do a email interview, because everyone here loves her.

    Thanks so much for listening to me.
    I hope you have a great day


  4. Hey Sarah,
    Bakerella is awesome at responding to e-mail. I would try to e-mail her through her blog and she will definitely get back to you in due time. That is how Rich made initial contact with her!
    Good luck,
    Melissa :)

  5. Hey Melissa,
