Foodie Tuesday: Your Guide to Holiday Parties

Food, food everywhere, but not a bite to eat!

This year, I’ll also be celebrating Thanks-giv-ukkah (that’s Thanksgiving and Hanukkah combined), so I decided to make one my favorite Hanukkah sides, potato latkes, with a sweet twist. I got a little carb crazy with these sides, but if you’re not eating carbs on Thanksgiving, then what exactly are you doing with your life? Continue reading
