Today marks two years that I have been blogging here at WJWE. Hooray! What started off as a hobby when I was bored at my desk job lead to quitting to go to culinary school. Now I’m writing, developing recipes and teaching cooking classes like a champ! Living the dream, my friends. Living the dream. But I really couldn’t do it if people (besides my loyal Bubbe, of course) read my blog. Thanks so much for checking out my recipes week after week! Jew are the best. And as a thank you, I have a special giveaway for one reader! Scroll to the bottom to enter!!
Now, are y’all ready for Hanukkah? You bet I am! My latkes are in the fryer and wish list all set for Hanukkah Harry. Hopefully I’m on the good list this year. What am I hoping for? Happy you asked! Here are a few of my favorite things.
Like any chef, I love to check out new cookbooks. And The Mile End Cookbook is one of my favorites this year! Chock full of deli favorites, everything from making your own pickles and curing meats to challah cinnamon buns. Not convinced you must own this cookbook? Two words for you: lamb bacon. You’re welcome.
Jerusalem is another cookbook worth its weight in gelt. It explores the Christian, Muslim and Jewish food of the city and includes over 100 recipes that combine the ethnicities into unique dishes with gorgeous photos. Love!
Um what’s not to love about these chopsticks? The saying- Jewish is the new black- flawless. Plus, how perfect will these be for noshing on your Christmas Eve Chinese food? I’m going to get a pair for each member of the Kritzer clan!
Of course I had to include my favorite Geltfiend Spinster Sweater on my list! It’s about friggin time the chosen people have their own pretty Hanukkah sweater to compete with all the ugly Christmas sweaters. Am I right or am I right? As it says on their site “Everything is better in a Chanukah Sweater”.
For the Jew who has everything, how about a Diamond Hebrew Letter? I knowwwww. Super cute. Who wants to get me an aleph?
This Nice Jewish Guys Calendar is pretty much porn for Jewish ladies. With a different mensch for each month, Bubbe will be so proud. Mr. October? What a stud!
Now you can schlep in style with this Schlep Tote bag! Perfect for schleping groceries, or bagels, or dreidels? Whatever.
And last but not least, remember when I stalked Yiddish Magnets in Athens? Now they can be mine- and your too!! One reader will win their own set.
