Guess what? Two very special people are celebrating a birthday today. That’s right, it’s us, the Kosher Foodies! For our special day, we’re sharing some Chanukah treats with you. Head on over to our Instagram page to win a Manischewitz Chanukah package!
What better way to celebrate any Jewish holiday than with food? Chanukah is one of the best holidays for such celebrations, since it can’t get much better than deep fried foods. Sufganiyot and latkes? The best!
And a new addition to the Chanukah classics: Manischewitz’s Chanukah House Vanilla Cookie Decorating Kit. The box comes with everything you need to create your own kosher, blue and white (with a touch of yellow) holiday house, including, my favorite part, an edible mezuzah for the door post! We had a blast decorating the house and sharing our holiday preparations and Chanukah story with our friends.
You can win your very own Chanukah House kit, along with a Donut Mix Kit and Chanukah Cookies with Decorating Icing on our Instagram page.
Even though we’ve been known to make our own doughnuts (and beignets) before, even we like to have a little help in the kitchen! The Manischewitz Donut Mix Kit, which includes dough, blue and white sprinkles, and powdered sugar, makes it easy for anyone to make their own doughnuts.
Finally, you’ll win the dreidel and Star of David cookies, which come with decorating icing, for an easier dessert-decorating alternative.
Not sure what to get your fellow foodie friend for Hanukkah this year? We’re not big on gifts, but if someone wanted to send us something from this list, we wouldn’t complain!
Here are some of our favorite things in the kitchen these days, along with some things we’ve been eyeing—might have to treat ourselves this holiday season! Continue reading
It’s a Hanukkah tradition to eat fried foods, you know, to remind us of the oil that lasted eight days instead of only one. Sufganiot, or jelly doughnuts, are one of the foods that you will always see at a Hanukkah party, along with latkes.
I have to admit, I don’t really eat doughnuts, especially ones filled with jelly or cream. It’s not that they aren’t delicious, they are, but only in theory. The ones you can buy at Dunkin Donuts is just not worth it, and the ones that are filled just have way too much filling to be enjoyed. They’re also too big, too sweet, and not fluffy enough. That’s why I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own doughnuts. They’re just a soft dough that’s cut into bagel-like shaped and fried, how hard can that be? And what better timing to make them than a family Hanukkah party?
No, I didn’t make the traditional Sufganiot. But they’re still fried in oil, so they’re still Hanukkah worthy. Continue reading
