Recipe: Cocoa Fritters, for HanukkahRecipes
Not to be rude, but there’s something a little scary about jelly donuts. It’s not the donut part. It’s not even the jelly part, to be frank. I just don’t like surprises in my sweets. Don’t ever hand me a box of chocolates without a very clear map of exactly what’s in there, and at which precise coordinates. Also, I call dibs on anything with pistachio, always.But let’s return to jelly donuts.

Recipe: Spaghetti Squash LatkesRecipes
Every year when Hanukkah comes around, I always take on the challenge to cook up creative latke recipes. The classic potato-and-onion recipe is always great on the first few nights, but by the third night, I find that I’m craving something a little different. Here, I’ve swapped the starchy grated potato for some tender spaghetti squash and tossed it with fresh herbs, green onions, and Pecorino Romano — an easy (and gluten-free!) latke everyone will love.

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.

This Is the Best Menorah for MillennialsKitchen
According to the data, millennials are drinking #allthewine. A study from the Wine Market Council, an industry nonprofit, found that millennials drank 42 percent of all the wine drunk in the United States in 2015, more than any other age group — an average of three glasses per sitting, to be exact. In seemingly unrelated news: Neither Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, or millennials seem to want their parents’ stuff. These two things are, in fact, related, though!

3 Super-Easy Ways to Decorate with Hanukkah GeltKitchen

7 Tips to Help You Make a Better BrisketSkills
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.
