5 Tasty Ways to Make Your Hanukkah Happy


This week begins the 8 days of Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights (and donuts and chocolate and fried potatoes), food and fun. Check out these food and drink recipes, that are sure to transform Oy-to-Joy!


Every Jewish family has its own version of this classic feel-better soup. I might be biased, but I think Lisa’s simple and superb recipe is the best one yet. This Traditional Chicken Soup with Matzo Balls is a real miracle, it can even finally convince your Mother-in-law that you’re good enough for her son.


This dairy delight, this sweet, old-fashioned Noodle Pudding dotted with caramelized apples, is the best, the greatest, the one-and-only version that will kick all others’ kugel to the curb. Egg noodles are tossed with cottage cheese, sour cream and cream cheese and topped with a crumbly graham cracker topping.


Like so many American favorites, the simple bagel and lox sandwich is rooted in a hardscrabble immigration story. We’ve taken this classic combination out of the 1930’s and modernized it in true Bite Me style with this this super easy Bagel & Smoked Salmon Strata.


Who needs Chocolate Gelt (chocolate coins covered in gold and silver foil) when you can have double the chocolate fix with these Gooey Double Chocolate Cookies?


Tired of wearing jelly powdered doughnuts on your face, fingers and pants? No longer. We’ve taken the taste of the perfect jelly doughnut, the ultimate Hanukkah dessert, and transformed it into this creamy Jelly Doughnut Milkshake. Grab a straw and ditch the dozen powdery doughnuts and the dry cleaner!
