Day 7 of 12 Day of Crazy Holiday Giveaways is upon us and none other than the fabulous Amy Kritzer of What Jew Wanna Eat is here! She is giving away one of her sweet cookbooks! It’s all about Jewish desserts and trust me, they are all delicious. I would know, I’ve eaten quite a few of them myself! Not only is Amy a talented chef and cookbook author, she is also fantastically hilarious and an amazing friend. I am beyond thrilled she is giving away one of her cookbooks just in time for Hanukkah!
Happy December everyone! I absolutely LOVE the holidays. I really do, I love them all. Anytime there is a reason to celebrate, I am all in. I was so excited when Austin Woman asked me to create some fun Hanukkah recipes for them this year. I immediately turned to my friend Amy Kritzer of What Jew Wanna Eat. She is the local (and probably national) Jewish food expert! So if you’re looking for tons of great Jewish food with a heavy dose of hilarity, be sure and check out her blog. I wanted to give these Hanukkah recipes a little twist so naturally, I went Texan with Amy’s recipe for Bourbon Braise Brisket with Cranberry Sauce! It’s sweet, tangy, delicious and it’s definitely the star of the holiday table!
A very Texas Hanukkah recipe! These matzo balls were life changing, seriously! This year, Hanukkah begins at sundown on December 24th, aka Christmas Eve, so no matter what you are celebrating this year, be sure these matzo balls are on your table. I made them as part of a Hanukkah menu for Austin Woman this month. Because don’t we all need something a little salty, crispy and fried sometimes?
