Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Typically, we don’t do a ton of baking in our household. We leave that up to my mom who has it mastered down to a science. I sometimes may give off the vibe that I do not bake, but there is not one Christmas that goes by that I don’t make cookies! I recently started making Chocolate Crinkle Cookies because they were my absolute favorite cookie growing up. I used to love to help my mom bake and these were ones she would let me take the reigns on. Now that I have two daughters of my own, I like…

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…

Rustic Chicken Recipe

Rustic Chicken Recipe

We are a chicken family. I’m telling you, we eat so much we may start clucking soon and I’m totally okay with that. My husband and I share a love for cooking and eating, so it’s not rare for him to jump into the kitchen on any given night to try out a recipe he found. Not long ago, he did just this and thinking about it is making my mouth water. He reluctantly told me he was watching Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa and saw her make a delicious roasted rustic chicken with croutons. The way he was raving about…
