Hanukkah Round Up

Hanukkah Round Up

Hanukkah is officially here! For the next 8 days and nights, The Festival of Light is upon us. That means some great east, lots of candles, presents and of course, family!

My husband is Jewish but coincidentally never really celebrated Hanukkah. After we got married, I thought we should start celebrating Hanukkah for our kids sake. So there I was, 6 months pregnant planning my very first Hanukkah dinner. I made matzoh ball soup, stuffed cabbage and latkes (aka potato pancakes). We lit the menorah, ate like champs and exchanged little presents. It was everything a non-Jewish girl thought it would be. We had the best time and continued the tradition every year since. We are going on our 5th Hanukkah together and this year we are getting a break and headed to my mother in laws house for dinner. I thought since I won’t be cooking the usual, I thought I would round up some delicious recipes, fun tablescape ideas and yummy desserts for Hanukkah this year from around the web!

Crispy Potato Latkes from Brown Eyed Baker


Braised Brisket with Root Vegetables from LaaLoosh


Tzimmes from Taste of Home


Roasted Salmon, Latkes, Slaw & Red Pepper Sauce from Taste with the Eyes


Noodle Kugel from Big Girls Small Kitchen


Dreidel Cookies from Hungry Happenings


Sufganiyot from Taste of Home


Krembo from Jewish Food Experience


Hanukah Table Setting from The Jewish Hostess


All these look so good, I can’t wait to see what this year will bring to the table! I’m hoping there will be some matzoh ball soup but I did hear a rumor there might be brisket – so fingers crossed! Do you celebrate Hanukkah? I’d love to hear what you make and how you celebrate.

To everyone who celebrates, have a Happy Hanukkah!
