Thumbprint cookies

These cookies are not simple break-and-bake cookies. You don’t just throw them together in a few minutes.

No, these cookies are as unique as the thumbprints that make them.

Thumbprint cookies are for those of you who love to bake, who love to get your hands dirty, who love to get that ‘mmmmm’ sound from your friends! Trust me, these will do it.

Chanukah in our stores

Happy Chanukah and Happy Thanksgiving or simply, Happy Thanksgivi-kah!

November is extra festive this year with the first day of Chanukah and Thanksgiving Day falling together; the last time this happened was 113 years ago!

Chanukah (also known as the Festival of Lights) starts at sundown on Wednesday, November 27 this year. So when you carve that turkey Thursday, many families will also be lighting those beautiful Menorahs

Celebrating the Tradition of Chanukah

Anyway you decide to spell it, Chanukah, Chanukkah, Hanukah or Hanukkah, it’s a very special holiday for my family and me. This year it begins on Tuesday, December 20 at sundown.

On a cold, dark Minnesota night, there’s nothing like the beautiful sight of the Chanukah candles in a frosty window, especially on the eighth night, the last night, when there are nine candles lit (eight candles in the Chanukiah plus the helper candle, the Shamash).

Our kids love to light the Menorah and then of course open a gift on each one of these evenings. Each year as they get older, we hope to instill a bit more about the joy of giving these gifts rather than receiving. It’s so important to recognize how lucky we are and the blessings we have.
