Thanksgivukkah Blogger Potluck

thanksgivukkah event

This Thanksgiving, Jews in the United States will celebrate Thanksgiving and the first night of Chanukah on the same day.  This is the first time that this has happened since 1888 and it won’t happen again for another 70,000 years.  As a Jewish person, I wasn’t thrilled about this news.  Like a whiny toddler, I moaned about keeping my latkes and turkey separate.  Then, my friend Brooke from Sucre Shop changed my mind.  She bubbled with joy about the prospect of Thanksgivukkah and all of its entertaining possibilities.  I decided to embrace the holiday in grand fashion.

I baked up a ton of Thanksgivukkah desserts and took them all to West Elm where their expert stylists Darraugh and Melissa helped me to create a catalog-worthy Thanksgivukkah dessert table.  I wanted to take Darraugh and Melissa home with me to style all of my holiday gatherings and parties!  Featured in the photo above and below, you’ll find my Thanksgivukkah Tzimmes (Tsimis) Pie topped with my Homemade Manischewitz-flavored Marshmallows, my turkey Chanukah gelt (I’ll be sharing the instructions soon), and some fluffy, homemade sweet potato casserole marshmallows (recipe coming soon to

But, my recipes weren’t enough Thanksgivukkah fun!  I also grabbed a bunch of a food blogger friends and asked them to join me to come up with appetizers, drinks, side dishes, main dishes, desserts, and decor to create a complete Thanksgivukkah meal.  Their ideas are certain to inspire you; check out the list below and show them some love!

Huge Thanks To…

  8. Hello! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I had to
    ask. Does running a well-established website like yours take a large
    amount of work? I am completely new to blogging but I do write in my diary on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and views online.

    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!
