Happy Holidays + A Recipe Roundup

Happy December, and Happy Holidays!

The holiday season is a time of year that I absolutely love. I grew up in a interfaith household and celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah. This time of year is filled with memories of family, relaxation and good food. My family is a very food-focused family, and coming from a both Jewish and Italian background, food is generally at the center of our gatherings. Celebrating food, in all forms, is very important to me and I am consistently grateful that my family and I get to choose what we feed ourselves, what we get to cook, and that gathering around a table is a way to celebrate and connect with one another. 

With this, I wanted to do a roundup of recipes from around the web! Everything can be found on my Pinterest board. I love sharing recipes that I find, and I hope this can serve as inspiration for your own holiday meals!



First, I compiled some delicious looking plant-forward side dishes. Roasted cauliflower, brussel sprouts, potatoes and squash are just some of the recipes I have saved!

I included some salad recipes, which is always a nice addition to a holiday meal. It is also a way to get more veggies in, which I am always trying to do ;)

I had to add a whole bunch of latke recipes to this board, as latkes are a traditional food enjoyed during Hanukkah. I included more traditional latke recipes, as well as ones made with other root vegetables such as sweet potato and beet. You can also add grated zucchini for some freshness, and of course top with either sour cream or apple sauce.

Nothing is better than a delicious cheese board, or snack spread, especially when hosting a party over the holidays. Check out the Pinterest board for lots of inspo!

Ginger cookies, sugar cookies or a chocolate pompegrante taste. These are a few desserts that I have saved, and can’t wait to try making myself.
