Brisket Latkes, Latke Waffles, Deborah Perlman’s Jelly Donuts, Chicken Levivot from NY SHUK, Za’atar Roasted Butternut Squash and Chickpeas and Crock Pot Applesauce are all on my “to make” list during Chanukah.
I’ll also attempt these Olive Oil Crinkle Gelt Cookies, Molly Yeh’s Halva Rugelah and this Giant Jelly Donut Cake.
If you feel like frying your latkes in schmaltz…
Ugly Chanukah Sweater Cookies make a fun host gift.
For the little kids…Dreidel Sidewalk Chalk, Menorah Crayons and Chanukah Magnetic Tic Tac Toe.
Some suggestions for book gift giving…The Tablet’s Best Jewish Children’s Books of 2014, 10 Best Books of 2014 from The New York Times (I’ve just bought three from this list) and The Best New Jewish Cookbooks from The Kitchn.

Happy Chanukah! Happy New Year! See you in 2015!!!
