Chanukah is the Jewish eight-day, wintertime “festival of lights,” celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers, and foods fried in oil. Why particularly oil you ask? Well, the miracle of this holiday was that there was only enough oil to light for one day, but the oil actually burned for 8 days! Yeah!!!!  While we love traditions, we also like healthier versions. After all, we are in the 21st century!  This year our first candle lighting starts Sunday, December 2nd.

Let’s look at easy fried donut holes, funnel cakes and some baked donuts!!!
