Beef and barley stew is a meal my family loves year-round. It warms you up in the wintertime, but it’s also good in the summer when you want a filling, hearty dish — you don’t have to heat up the kitchen to make it, thanks to the pressure cooker.
My mom’s Christmas fudge was my very favorite Christmas treat from my childhood. When I asked my mom for the recipe, she said, “It’s on the back of the jar!” She was referring to the jar of marshmallow fluff. As much as I was craving my mom’s Christmas fudge, I didn’t want to make it with the store-bought fluff.
Can hot cocoa with whipped cream be nutritious and still taste great? Absolutely — if you’re using whole, raw milk from grass-fed cows and raw grass-fed cream.
We went snowshoeing the other weekend in Sun Valley and it was so great to sit in the lodge and have some hot cocoa with whipped cream. Unfortunately, we were probably drinking something like Carnation Hot Chocolate.
This recipe for latkes (or potato pancakes) is from Bubbe, Kate’s grandmother. It’s an everyday food at Jewish delis (I love it with my salami and eggs) but it’s also very traditional for Hanukkah.
Hanukkah, also called the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday. This year it begins on December 1st this year. I’m excited because we are flying to New York to see Bubbe and Papa for Bubbe’s 70th birthday party. For the first time, we get to celebrate Hanukkah with Bubbe and Papa.
