This year marks the momentous, once-in-a-lifetime occasion of Thanksgivikkuh, when Thanksgiving and Hanukkah fall at the same time. And we’re seeing stars. To help us celebrate, we’ve turned to the following five bloggers who we consider proud pillars in the Jewish cooking community. Here is a selection of their finest autumnal holiday recipes.
Tori Avey, aka The Shiksa in the Kitchen, offers up a host of regular recipe posts, including—drumroll please—an entire section dedicated to a selection of Thanksgivvikuh Recipes, featuring dishes like this Matzo Crisp with Pear, Apple and Cranberries.
Amy Kritzer’s kosher kitchen adventures started with a collection of her Bubbe’s tried-and-true, traditional recipes. Since then, Kritzer’s work has evolved into a culinary career and standout blog, What Jew Wanna Eat. The site sports the tagline This Ain’t Yo Bubbe’s Blog, but with recipes like this Bourbon and Coffee Braised Brisket with Cranberry Sauce, we have a feeling Bubbe would approve.
Tales of an Overtime Cook
A twenty-something blogger who works a full time job (complete with commute), Miriam uses her time in the kitchen as an outlet. And thank goodness she makes the time. In Tales of an Overtime Cook, Miriam chronicles her culinary escape with kosher recipes—like these Melt-In-Your-Mouth Hanukkah Gelt Cookies—and stunning photography.
Kosher Like Me
Liz Rueven has us smitten with her blog Kosher Like Me, boasting beautifully seasonal recipes like these Roasted Butternut-Sage Waffles. Follow Liz for recipes, cookbook giveaways and news on kosher cooking events around the country.
Bestselling cookbook author Jamie Geller’s website, Joy of Kosher, houses her own blog—plus nine other kosher foodie blogs. Offering up recipes like Sour Mash Whiskey Glazed Roasted Turkey, Joy of Kosher gets star billing on our holiday blogroll.
