HOLIDAY: Happy Chanukah

Chanukah, the festival of lights, starts at sunset tonight through sunset, December 19th, or in the Hebrew calendar, the 24th of Kislev, 5770. Most people enjoy celebrating with potato latkes (you can send them as a gift from Linda’s Latkes).

Even if you’re not Jewish, why not make some latkes over the weekend, and join the never-ending discussion over which is the better topping: applesauce or sour cream. (In our book, it’s crème fraîche and salmon caviar.)

But, for something a little different:

  • Bake a challah with this recipe.
  • Make a pasta salad with kosher star-of-David-shaped pasta from The Pasta Shoppe (read our review).
  • Review the history of Chanukah, and why a menorah is lit for eight nights.

    Take a look at our favorite kosher Chanukah gifts for 2009 (or 5770, as it were). For those concerned about packing on the pounds over the holidays, our favorite guilt-free munchies are the Tillen Farms Pickled Vegetables. They prove that, while others are enjoying the latkes and the brownies, the calorie- and carb-counters can have their own fabulous treats.
