What I Love: Latkes and Sufganiyot

One of the best things about Jewish holidays is the food, specifically the sweets. Sufganiyot for Chanukah and Hamantashen for Purim. Where does one get these delicacies in the Bay Area if they don't want to bake? Saul's in Berkeley.

What I Love: Latkes and Sufganiyot

Last night I came home with a dozen latkes, a pint of applesauce, and a dozen Sufganiyot. cubes had not tried Sufganiyot before and bit in eagerly. He really liked the jam filling. (I love the jam filling and never think Syfganiyot can have enough. Maybe next year I'll try my hand at making a batch.) He tends to prefer savory over sweet so latkes remain his favorite Chanukah treat.

What holiday treats have you been overindulging in?

Sprite, once again, wanted to be in on the lighting. Instead of watching the candles and enjoying our treats, we spent most of the time catching Sprite before a whisker or tail brushed the flames. Any suggestions for keeping curious cats away from lit menorahs?

Bon Apetit!
