Foodie Favorites – December 17, 2014

foodie favorites - december 17, 2014 // my bacon-wrapped lifeWhat kind of birthday cake do you get when you’re dating a food blogger who loves to bake? A whisky cake, because no cake I could ever make could even begin to rival this guy’s love of some good scotch. Happy Birthday, Brad!!

Hey guys! How’s your week going? Are you so excited for the holidays? I know I am! This weekend I baked up tons of granola for gift-giving (and self-eating…). We are flying home on Sunday for over a week in LA with my family, and I’m absolutely counting down the days! In the meantime…let’s look at tons of pictures of food to tide us over. Here are this week’s Foodie Favorites!


Sweet Potato Latkes with Golden Raisins and Walnuts

Guys. DON’T WORRY. I didn’t forget about Hanukkah this year. You were worried, right? But just in the nick of time, I’m comin’ atcha with some latkes like BOOM.

A few weeks ago, I was talking to my best friend Emily and mentioned that I was sad I wasn’t going to any Hanukkah dinners or parties this year. I always love celebrating with my Jewish friends and their families, but this year, all of our close Jewish friends are living in different cities, and nothing came up on the calendar. Like the smart, savvy lady that she is, she suggested that I have my own Hanukkah celebration. And she’s totally right. I mean, why can’t two completely Christian people who have a healthy appreciation for all Jewish foods have a little latke party?

I didn’t take any food pics this week, so here is a throwback to Thanksgiving weekend, eating mountains of incredible, authentic bulgogi at home in Los Angeles! Can’t wait to do it  all over again in a few weeks.

Hey guys! How’s your week going? I’m definitely feeling the holiday buzz and a little stress – so much to do, so little time! I finished all of our Christmas shopping this past weekend, and now I’m just baking up a storm – which is at least my favorite to-do! We have three holiday parties in three days coming up, so at least I know it will be a wonderful weekend despite being insanely hectic. Here are this week’s Foodie Favorites.
