Crumb Cake Hamentashen

HAPPY BLOGAVERSARY TO ME!!!!! WOOOHOO! Can’t believe that its been one year since I started blogging my recipes and ideas. As I said when I started, blogging was something that I had wanted to do for a while and now its turned out to be the best outlet for me.  Here’s a small snapshot of what was posted this year (and this isn’t even everything!):

Anyway, when I started I started with a Hamentashen recipe ( ) I knew this was an awesome theme to keep doing and getting creative with.

Purim is one of the best holidays out there – first theres just the whole idea of simcha and really being happy and connecting to the true you. Second, Esther teaches us one of the most important lessons – that you should always be proactive, you never know why you are put into certain situations, but Hashem knows what He is doing and at the end of the day you are where you are for a reason. Then lastly, we have Hamentashen. YUMMM best cookie probably ever!!
