A Party My Mom Would be Proud Of

My parents are the king and queen of throwing parties. Growing up we always were celebrating something. Our Hannukkah party was the party of the year for our family; celebrating every year for 24 years! In helping my mom cook and prepare for a party with usually 60-80 people in attendance, I like to think I’ve learned a thing or two about how to prepare for a party. And this case our Christmakah party had about 20 people at it’s peak. Speaking subjectively of course, I think it went off without a hitch!

The menu (with recipes to come) clockwise from the bottom:

– Fruit
– Gingerbread cookies
(pinecones for decoration)
– White chocolate covered preztels
Latkes with apple sauce (dad would be proud of my frying skills)
– Two types of cheese and crackers
– Mom’s artichoke dip (should’ve doubled the recipe, people loved it)
– Veggies
Red velvet cheesecake

Voila! Stay tuned for the recipes!
