What is Hannukah without Hannukah cookies? Tried out a new recipe for the cookie and the frosting. Both came out exquisite. I will be posting them at some point.
During the party, I wanted a bigger more present menorah than my little one. So I stopped by Cost Plus World Market and picked up these little votive holders. At Costco I found a set of 30 LED candles for $15 (including a whole extra set of batteries). So I put the ones with fake…Details
