Do you think @bloomingdales would notice (or mind) if I quietly moved into their china/housewares dept.? Every place setting & holiday table is more beautiful than the next. Was tempted to indulge in some new plates until the sticker shock--$300.

The More, The Merrier! โœก๐ŸŽ„ When your kids celebrate Chanukah and Xmas (two homes, two religions), this is what Saturday looks like. Doing a little weekend baking (keeping busy while kids are away) & taste testing (tough job!) new cookie recipes. Why is baking so soothing? โค . . . . . #chanukah #hanukah #chanukah2018 #festivalofligjts #xmascookies #fromscratch #lovetobake #sweettooth #kosherdesserts #cookiefun #thejewishkitchen #holidaycookies #cookiegifts #sweettooth #bostonfoodie
Shabbat Shalom, my friends. Just a quiet night, missing the kids (the downside of a blended family means that sometimes your children are not with you & I just don't think you ever get used to it). Choosing to focus on the positive--my gratitude everyday for having children I love, miss, & get to welcome home in a few days. โค . . . . . #shabbat #shabbatshalom #goodshabbos #blendedfamily #ilovemykids #famfirst #shabbos #thejewishkitchen #momslove #jewishhome #jewishfamily
Mah Jongg, Anyone? โœก Happy 3rd night of Chanukah & how fabulous is this crystal Mah Jongg dreidel?? โค At my temple's annual Chanukah party this Sunday, I was thrilled to be a holiday vendor & showcase the gorgeous tabletop, linens, & gifts I'll soon offer on my online store. This was the first item snatched up, followed by a crystal Mah Jongg menorah. Go figure--Mah Jongg lovers at a synagogue! ๐Ÿ˜Š I have one dreidel left. Feel free to DM if interested. Happy to overnight or 2-day ship. ๐ŸŽ . . . . . #dreidel #crystalgifts #chanukah #hanukah #chanukah2018 #mahjongg #hanukkah #hanukkah2018 #jewish #jewishhome #jewishholiday #jewisholidays #menorahs #thejewishkitchen #hanukiah
Jelly Doughnut-ed Out? โœก The second night of Hanukkah is upon us & the dessert parade continues! Tonight's confection: my Aunt Sandy's delicious chocolate-dipped, chocolate chip mandel bread (basically, a Jewish biscotti, but less crunchy). So, so good & super easy to make.

Happy Hanukkah!!!! โœก What a wonderful day, starting with a family service at our beloved Temple Emanuel, the annual Sisterhood Hanukkah party, & then celebrating at home with family. ๐Ÿ’™ Latkes, sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts), gifts, songs, lighting the menorah, & that feeling of gratitude when you look around the table & see your children in all one place--happy, healthy, (thank G-d) and you just whisper thank you. ๐Ÿ™ . . . . . #hanukah2018 #dreidel #latkes #hanukah #chanukah2018 #chanukah #jewish #kosher #jewfood #jewishhome #onthetable #bostonfoodie #jewshholiday #thejewishkitchen #kosherfood #jewishrecipes #foodstagram

Table Ideas for Chanukah ๐Ÿ’™ As.far as I'm concerned, when it comes to a festive table--the more, the merrier! Hanukah is a great time to bring warmth, color, flavor, & sparkling light (literally--get your menorah ready!) to your table. โœก Sometimes I make a centerpiece by piling kids" goodie bags filled w/decorated cookies, gelt, & dreidels tied w/blue, silver, & gold ribbon onto a cakestand or I'll place a small gift on each dinner plate. Or both. Yes, please!! Three days to go!! ๐ŸŽ . . . . . #chanukah #chanukah2018 #hanukah #hanukah2018 #dreidel #latkes #festivaloflights #sufganiyot #thejewishkitchen #jewishhome #highholidays #shabbat #kosher #shabbatshalom #kosher #jewfood #jewishlife #jewishcelebrations
Potatoes? Check. Apples? Check. 5 days to Chanukah? DOUBLE CHECK!!! โœก This is a my favorite recipe for potato-apple latkes & true confession--I make them year round. Shredded Granny Smith apples are the key to the perfect texture & a hint of sweetness. ๐Ÿ FOR RECIPE, TAP LINK IN PROFILE . . . . . #latkes #potatolatkes #chanukah #chanukah2018 #hanukah2018 #jewishfood #jewfood #shabbat #shabbatshalom #kosher #kosherrecipes #delish #thejewishkitchen #jewishmeal #bostonfoodie #kosherfoods #fromscratch #onthetable
Grandma's House ๐Ÿงก My grandmother always had 3 heaping crystal candy dishes on her coffee table in her Brooklyn home & us kids (all the first cousins) used to make a beeline for them whenever we burst through her door. ๐Ÿฌ First bowl? What seemed like a million M&Ms, back when they still made light brown AND dark brown ones (& no blue--what's with blue M&Ms anyway!?) ๐Ÿซ Bowl 2: Jelly fruit slices or some kind of jelly gumdrops--and we'd all pick out the red ones & avoid the black ones like they were the plague. ๐Ÿ˜Š Bowl 3: Whole walnuts in their shell w/a silver nutcracker (no one would ever leave that lying around w/kids these days, but hey, we turned out just fine). I have no idea who ate those, but we didn't. Athough we were fascinated by the nutcracker. ๐Ÿฅœ I haven't been in that house for 35+ years, but I can still see every room, down to the curved coffee table & the candy in those dishes. โค . . . . . #grandmashouse #bubbieshouse #bubbies #gumdrops #jewish #candiesfavorite #favoritecandies #brooklynmemories #brooklyngirl #brooklyngirls #jewishgirl #thejewishkitxhen #fruitslices #jewishfood #jewishhome
Just Around the Corner! โœก Hard to believe, but Chanukah is but 9 days away (so early this year!!) & while Thanksiving leftovers are still in everyone's fridge, I'm already thinking about latkes, sufganiyot, & piles of chocolate gelt. โค I can't wait to start baking & wrapping gifts. These iced cookies are always a hit & even though everything seems a little rushed this year, baking with the kids is one of the things I most look forward to. ๐Ÿช FOR RECIPE, TAP LINK IN PROFILE . . . #chanukah #chanukah2018 #sugarcookies #jewishfood #holidaytreats #holidaybaking #jewishdesserts #kosherfood #thejewishkitchen #desserts #lovetobke #fromscratch #hanukah #hanukah2018 #jewfood

Let the Parade of Desserts Begin! โค Happy (almost) Thanksgivng to all! Like many of you, my favorite part of this holiday is the guilt-free opportunity to bake like a madwoman. Crisps, tarts, pies, ANYTHING with brown sugar, vanilla, & cinnamon. ๐Ÿ˜Š This is my go-to fruit crisp recipe & for Thanksgiving, I typically use apples, pears, & blueberries & serve it w/vanilla ice cream & fresh whipped cream.
