Celebrating Hanukkah with my first ever Challah!

My friend, Avital, who lives in Israel,sent me this beautiful photograph she took a couple years ago of a simple Menorah and I asked her to allow me to share it with everyone today.  Thank you so much Avital.

One of the things I love most about this image is the reflections of the candle flames - to me it is almost as if they are extending back in time - as if they are a connection to previous generations. And check out her beautiful image of Hanukkah street light decorations in her city

Celebrating La Virgen de Guadalupe with Sopapillas, Green Chile Stew and Angie!

My favorite feast on December 12th, the celebration of La Virgen de Guadalupe, is a big bowl of Green Chile Stew and a basket full of pipping hot Sopapillas.  I am sharing my recipes for both. 

We start with Sopapillas.

One ornament to Celebrate Four Holidays! Hanukkah! Santa Lucia! Feast of Guadalupe! Advent!

!

The feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the beginning of Hanukkah, and Santa Lucia Day all fall on the same weekend this year! 

I love this cheerful little ornament that can be adapted for any one or all of them!

Santa Lucia Day, December 13th.  Use red and white yarns to reflect the colors used in Scandinavian winter holiday decorations.

Viva LA FIESTA!

Here she is!  My beautiful mother, modeling a gorgeous, hand crafted late 1940's Fiesta Dress!    (As a grade school student,  I was convinced I had the most beautiful mother on the planet!)
