I feel like I’m still processing that Thanksgiving is over, and it already feels like Hanukkah is right around the corner! Now, I know sufganiyot, or jelly donuts, are the traditional Hanukkah treat (I learned this from a Sesame Street Hanukkah video I used to watch on VHS as a kid), but my tiny apartment kitchen doesn’t allow for frying. So what could I make that is Hanukkah themed, but also delicious? Continue Reading
Aside from dessert, my favorite food on the Thanksgiving table is the sweet potatoes. And that’s probably because it’s basically a dessert that’s served with dinner. My mom’s sweet potatoes are always topped with cherries, pineapple rings, and plenty of marshmallows. Just how I like ’em!

Now, I don’t believe in the word “foolproof” as I’ve been known to mess up “foolproof” recipes or projects, but this fudge just always works. It takes no time at all to make, and then you just throw it in the fridge and you’re done. You don’t even have to turn on the oven! Continue Reading
