One of my favorite things when I'm cooking is to use adorable cooking tools. Trust me; it makes hanging out in a kitchen for hours much more bearable. Here's some of my favorite items to make your kitchen as cute as possible.

Happy Hanukkah! The official food of Hanukkah is potato latkes (potato pancakes). My awesome Jewish friend, Rebecca (the same friend that taught me how to make hamantaschen last year), hosted a latke party tonight to celebrate Hanukkah. There are two main ways to make latkes - bird's nest-style and pancake-style - and we made both! Enjoy & happy Hanukkah!

Why is stuffing primarily a Thanksgiving dish? I mean, it uses up leftover bread (extra points for that, for sure) and is a truly delicious and filling side dish. I am totally an advocate of year-round stuffing. For Thanksgiving dinner this year, I was busy cooking other things, so I tossed all of this in the slow cooker (Stirring occasionally? I think I can handle that) and let it do its thing. This recipe was inspired by A Year of Slow Cooking & fills a 4-quart slow cooker. Enjoy & happy Thanksgiving!

It's Thanksgiving time again, which means wanting to make all the food, but really not having enough time to do so. If you remember, last year I made cheddar and cranberry cream cheese biscuits and a leftover Thanksgiving pizza. This year, I'll be making my (in)famous hash brown casserole, a holiday couscous salad, homemade stuffing, and these incredibly decadent slow cooker scalloped potatoes. I adapted this recipe from An Oregon Cottage and it makes an entire 4-quart crockpot full of cheesy potatoey goodness. Enjoy!

Tuesday night was the annual Mobbies award ceremony and I am psyched to say that I won for Best Personal Twitter and Best Food Blog! EEEEEEEEEEEE! Thank you thank you thank you to anyone & everyone who voted for me! I was up against some serious competition for both categories (and I urge you to check out all of the other blogs; they're so great!). So, yes, I am completely overwhelmed with how much I love y'all right now.
