happy thanksgivukkah my dear readers!photo 2

thanksgiving and hanukkah fall at the same time this year, and rumor has it that this won’t occur again for another 77,000 years, so we’re taking advantage of it and combining the two.

thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays, a chance to cook delicious and comforting food, spend time with family and friends, and reflect on everything that we have to be thankful for.

last year i shared a whole list of recipe ideas, which i’ve drawn inspiration from again this year.

some highlights from last year:

2013: the year of the blog

happy new year my friends!

i hope you all a nice and relaxing holiday season filled with loved ones and more importantly, lots of delicious holiday fare! for me, it was a nonstop wine-ing and dining fest from thanksgiving through new years, as it goes. but you won’t find any regret here! the food i ate was delicious and oh so worth it.

to give you a little taste of all the wonderful things i ate, here are a few pictures:
