How To Make the Best Rugelach CookiesRecipes
There is no resisting rugelach, no matter how nubbly or imperfectly rolled. They’re buttery, flaky, and just the right amount of sweet. You can fill them with anything from ground nuts and honey to peanut butter and chocolate — the only real constant is using cream cheese to make a super-tender dough. Here’s how you can make them at home. I am a student of the Dorie Greenspan School of Rugelach.

How I’m Making Hanukkah Special for My Kids This YearPeople
Kids ruin everything. Really (not really, but you see where this is going). You can’t enjoy a great night out without worrying about a hangover the next day. Every trip you plan, you think out worst-case scenarios, pack a great quantity of medicine, and invariably freak out when the airline messes up your seats and places you far away from your toddler. They especially ruin lazy holidays.

Build Your Own Menorah Out of Mini BagelsPeople
Not to generalize or anything, but we Jews love us some bagels. We typically eat them on one of the holiest days of the year. We eat them with just a schmear of cream cheese or piled high with lox, onions, capers, and more. So it’s no surprise that we’re starting to see bagel-themed Hanukkah menorahs all around the country. Last year, just for fun, the Chabad in Bethesda, Maryland, built a 10-foot menorah out of 400 assorted bagels from Goldberg’s New York Bagels.

Recipe: Gougères with Fig JamRecipes
Fried jelly doughnuts, called sufganiyot, are a common Hanukkah treat in Israel, and are increasingly popular in the United States. But while homemade doughnuts filled with strawberry or raspberry jam are delicious as a once-in-a-while treat, they make the house smell like fried food and leave a pesky amount of cooking oil behind to dispose of. These gougères, which come sandwiched with fig preserves, offer a savory, sophisticated twist on sufganiyot.

3 Super-Easy Ways to Decorate with Hanukkah GeltPlan & Prep

What Do Jelly Doughnuts Have to Do with Hanukkah?People
Latkes get all the attention this time of year — as they should, latkes are awesome — but another Hanukkah treat has been gaining in popularity stateside in recent years. Put your hands together for the jelly doughnut. What the two have in common symbolically is also the ingredient that makes both so delicious: oil.

To make frying doughnuts an experience you want to repeat, there are a few key mistakes to avoid. Here’s what you need to steer clear of for success.

7 Tips to Help You Make a Better BrisketPlan & Prep
During Hanukkah (and well beyond), there are bound to be many briskets gracing tables around America. Braised brisket takes time, but a great brisket is not hard to bring to the table. These seven simple tips will help you make a better brisket every time. There’s a delicate balance here. Leave too much fat and the braising liquid you’re left with will be greasy. However, you don’t want to cut off too much fat; fat equals flavor in the final dish.

Why Eating Egg Rolls Will Always Feel Like Christmas to MePeople
A Jewish family of four sharing a plate of sesame chicken on Christmas Day: It’s a holiday tradition for so many of this country’s 5 million Jews. Indeed, it was a tradition throughout my own childhood. Every year — without fail — we’d hop in the station wagon (in later years, the van) in Albany, New York, and make the 15-minute drive to Dumpling House. It was a bit like a mini-pilgrimage in the town nicknamed “Smallbany.

Recipe: Vegetarian Matzo Ball SoupRecipes
One of the foods I most long for from my childhood bopping around Jewish delicatessens in New York and Los Angeles is the humble bowl of matzo ball soup: a mountain of tender dumplings surrounded by rich stock and not much else. As a child I would nibble each tender spoonful, carefully whittling down my knaidel (as “matzo ball” is called in Yiddish). I felt comforted and loved, not from my grandmother’s kitchen, but by those fascinating, mostly ancient servers who dished it up.

Recipe: Rustic Almond-Orange MacaroonsRecipes
French macarons may be all the rage, but don’t dismiss the humble macaroon, which is derived from marzipan — a smooth paste of blanched almonds and sugar that, when mixed with egg white and baked, turns into chewy little gems. And macaroons are a heck of a lot easier to make than a DIY Ladurée project. It wasn’t always so simple. My aunt Hanna once told me a story about the massapan that her mother, my Iraqi grandmother, use to make.

Recipe: Pummelo, Fennel & Radish SaladRecipes
Salads are the unsung hero of my winter. Often overlooked — it’s too cold for salad! There are no tomatoes! — a winter salad challenges my creativity; surprises me with possibilities; and lifts my spirits on short, gray days and long winter nights. Yes, we have those in California where I live. Truth is, a refreshing winter salad is the essential counterpoint to hearty soups and braises.

Recipe: Braised Beef with Semolina DumplingsRecipes
This hearty winter braise is inspired by two of the most beloved dishes my safta (grandmother in Hebrew) used to make: kubbe — miniature meat-filled semolina dumplings simmered in a vegetable or meat stew — and long-cooked green beans, variously known as loubia or fasoulia. Here, herb-flecked semolina dumplings capture the flavor and nubbly texture of my safta’s original recipe without all the work.
