It’s time to make the Hanukkah Doughnuts & Custard Jelly Doughnuts are DOPE

jelly doughnuts

This year Hanukkah falls on the same day as Christmas. I love this. It means we will have the day off to celebrate with friends and family.

That calls for doughnuts! Sephardic doughnuts. These doughnuts are also called bumuelos because Sephardic Jews are from Spain. Hanukkah is the festival of oil, so of course doughnuts are the perfect food to celebrate. Let’s face it: jelly doughnuts are always perfect. I found this amazing recipe for filled jelly doughnuts from one of my fave aussie dessert bloggers, Sarah from Sugar Hit . You can find the full recipe on her blog. Let me know how it is if you give it a try.

Sweet dreams xx

Thanksgivukkah, the holiday that comes around every 5000 years.

2013-11-08_16-31-01 This year for the first time EVER… Thanksgiving falls on the first night of Hanukkah. Needless to say it’s a bit challenging marrying these 2 holidays, but I am up for the challenge. I have decided to ring in Thanksgivikkah by melding my holiday menus with the traditional turkey with stuffing, but I will be making my sweet potato latkes and cranberry apple sauce (recipe coming tomorrow!) as a side. For dessert we’ll be having Pecan pie rugelach and pumpkin kugel. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Have a peek into what our table will look like for our first (and last) Thanksgivikkah ever.
The table scape and holiday wrap will be blue and orange. I made super cute turkey cut-outs and embellished them with tiny stars of David for place cards, persimmon, figs and branches will anchor the centerpiece. twinkling blue votives on a pumpkin linen tablecloth will finish off the holiday scheme.

Pinning for the Holidays

Pinterest is one of the easiest ways to keep all of your creative ideas and recipes in one place. I’m totally into it. This top board is all Hanukkah related. Lots of treats for the kids (and us of course) as well as some fun crafts.

  • Hanukkah food (donuts – yum!)
  • á croquer
  • blue and white straws

    Holiday treats is another board I’ve been working on. I’ve been pinning lots of fabulous desserts as well as gifting ideas for neighbors and friends. I love kraft paper, so it’s definitely making a repeat appearance! What have you been pinning?

  • wedding cookies
  • bright balls + brown paper bags
  • kraft paper labels
  • candy cane milkshake
