To show my appreciation to all of my wonderful readers, I am giving away this guy to one lucky reader:
It should arrive just in time for Thanksgiving, and hopefully will make cooking for this Holiday season a bit more fun. :)
If you already have a mini food processor – this would make an excellent gift!

I would love the processor too!!!!!
But thats besides the point! My favorite thanksgiving memory was soon after my husband and I first met. He’s from Europe, and my family all lives far away, so we decided to take advantage of having no family commitments whatsoever and run off on a road trip. We drove from NJ to Acadia National Park in Maine and got lobsters for Thanksgiving dinner. We stayed at an adorable little B&B and it was just so cute and non-traditional that it’s always stuck with me. Now of course we do the turkey and fixin’s route at our home and have fallen back into the traditional thanksgiving, but that first offbeat holiday was a real keeper memory! :)

My all time Favorite Holiday memory is having my great grandmother come down for Thanksgiving..the entire family was down. It’s hard to get her down to Texas since she’s up North. She doesn’t like to travel and she’s won’t fly.
Jumped on over here from CottonWife’s blog.
One of my favorite Christmas memories would have to be last years. We had soooo much fun just hanging out with each other. Just us. 2008 was a difficult year. We ended the year “reconnected” as a family. It was (is) awesome!
Left my holiday memory comment yesterday, but joined your facebook group today!
I suppose this is a silly memory, but last year I made a healthy pumpkin pie, and usually when I make healthy stuff it’s OK, but not people’s favorite. This pie, on the other hand, everyone loved beyond belief and it made me feel good to serve something they loved and I loved giving them
potato latkes with sour cream and applesauce at my grandma’s house!
My favorite holiday memory is from when I was 11 – we had a family reunion down in Florida for Christmas. It was the only time that pretty much everyone from my mom’s side of the family was in one place at one time. It was so much fun and so amazing to spend time with family members that I very very rarely get to see.
My favorite memory was last year, when my sister-in-law and I got to “take over” our family’s Thanksgiving meal! We had a blast, and the rest of the family got to take a break.
A lot of my favorite holiday memories stem from playing during the Christmas Eve services growing up (very serious flute player). :)
P.S. I’m already following you on twitter!
My favorite holiday memory is the December of 1993 when my daughter was born. She was the best Christmas gift ever!! Can’t believe she will be 16 this December!
Wow cool giveaway Jessica….how sweet it is…and I need a new one cause I sold my big one when we downsized! My favorite holiday memory is when I bought everyone flannel pjs one year in my family and my sisters family and sewed some drawstring bags for them in xmas fabric…everyone opened them on xmas eve and we put our pj’s on and played games all night till the wee hours. Of course we are all grown up and older so no little ones waiting for Santa…so we started a new tradition. THEN I made everyone go to the mall the next day and bring their pj’s and we took a family photo at “Picture People”…the kids still complain because I made them wear their pj’s at the mall…of course they are kiddin’ because it’s still talked about so I know they really like the idea.
Okay, just saw the feed going to update that now!!!
Fave memory is watching Christmas Vacation with my family EVERY year.
My favorite holiday memory is when my boyfriend and I held Thanksgiving in our apartment a few years ago and had both of our families over to celebrate!
My favorite holiday memory is when my family and I spent it in Quebec on Thanksgiving! We were going to make a turkey in the small hotel room but the oven didnt work! Instead we went to a fancy thai restaurant and had a rediculously delicious meal–5 courses!
I would LOVE To win!
My favorite seasonal memory would be any Thanksgiving when my Nana was still alive and “with” us. She MADE Thanksgiving & Christmas for us with the scents of the season and no matter how long I live, I’ll ALWAYS associate these holidays with her, her love of food and of feeding us her traditional recipes. I miss her terribly.
SHared on facebook :)
tweeted it too
My favorite holiday memory would be when I was around 11 or 12 and my entire family – both my dad’s side and my mom’s side – got together for Thanksgiving. There were well over 60 of us there, and things got pretty crazy, but it was fabulous to have everyone together at one place and time. Fifteen years later, I live in New Jersey, and my family is still in Maine, so I don’t get to visit with them the way I used to. I remember that Thanksgiving like it was yesterday, and wish every year we could re-live it.

Great giveaway! Fave memories include making a gingerbread house from scratch with my parents and eating the candy decorations as we went along.
My favorite holiday memory didn’t actually occur on the actual holiday, but the week before Thanksgiving. When I was in grad school, a few of my friends could not go home for the holidays. I also had one classmate who had never celebrated a traditional Thanksgiving meal because he was Vietnamese. So, one night, a few of my girlfriends and I planned what we dubbed “Grad School Thanksgiving” and concocted a funny email message to the entire class instructing them on what food they were responsible for bringing to the feast. There was turkey, stuffing, mac ‘n’ cheese, cornbread, fried chicken, pie, cake, green bean casserole and a whole host of other foods. We all sat around an on-campus apartment eating the food, blasting music and enjoying our friend Vu’s reaction to traditional Thanksgiving food (he was a fan). There may have been a soccer game outside at one point too. It was probably the best “holiday” I ever had, and I wish I could have Thanksgiving with that same group of people every year.
Cookie Sunday!! My mom’s side of the family goes to my grandparent’s house the Sunday before Christmas. Grandma makes almost 20 dozen cut-out cookies (gingerbread and sugar) and we decorate them using homemade icing. All of my mom’s 6 siblings bring their holiday cookies and we exchange them. Some of my cousins and I make a gingerbread house and the day ends with take-out pizza and everyone taking home containers full of dozens of cookies. It is my favorite day of the whole year!
My best holiday memory is the year we all piled into the car and went to JcPenney’s to get our Christmas PJ’s. Every Christmas my mom buys us Christmas PJ’s and this one particular year she decided we didn’t really care so she wasn’t going to buy them. We were so upset that we all piled into the car Christmas Eve and went to get our PJs. We had such a good time shopping together.
One of my best holiday memories was my grandmother’s dumplings and chess pie. Yummmmm
Fave was when I burnt 3 successive batches of spice cookies one thanksgiving because I had a cold and couldn’t smell the burning (yes that sick but still baking cuz i looovvve it!)
Thanks for the giveaway!
The Christmas I think about the most was the one that I last spent with my parents in 2002. Three months later they both died in an accident. They had just built their dream retirement home and I pushed to have a traditional family Christmas there that year. Of course now I am sooo glad I was so persistent! I am very grateful that I was given this time with them not knowing what the future was going to bring. We did it all…Christmas tree, cookies, turkey dinner..it’s a treasured memory of a time I will have forever :-)
I would love love love a food processor.. my favorite holiday memory involves my dad finally surprising my mom.. every year my mom seems to always find out or correctly guess what my dad’s present for her.. one year he wrapped an odd shaped box with some miscellaneous junk in it and a note with rhyming clues on how to find her real gift… the clues were read outloud and we all tried to help mom figure out the answer.. there were 4-5 clues and all were so creative.. and led my mom with all the kids trailing throughout the house ending in the basement following a string into a closet where a beautiful new coat hung… the joy on my mom’s face is a memory I’ll have forever… it was a great Christmas and a wonderful lesson on thoughtfulness.
My favorite memory is from Thanksgiving when I was really young and my family invited over a group of autistic adults for dinner with us. It was the craziest, best thanksgiving Ive ever had
My favorite memory is cooking with my dad. I always help him with his homemade potato rolls, they are the best!
I am a fan on facebook now:)
Great give away. My fave holiday memory is just sharing my holiday with my non-Jewish friends. I love to have them over to make matzo ball soup and fry up some latkes, then tell them about my holiday and all of our traditions.
Ok, I am following you now on twitter and it’s been tweeted. Glad to find your blog and I look forward to reading more.
I’m a fan on Facebook! *crossing my fingers I win* – ours broke last month! :\
Wow!! What a great giveaway!!
My favorite holiday moment is last year being in New Orleans for Christmas and New Years. It was the first time that we were able to spend the holidays with our extended family.
Just became a fan on facebook.
Make sure to enter my great giveaway on Mom on the Run
My fav holiday moment was when I was a kid and my mom got these adorable gingerbread (plastic waxey) ornaments from avon. My sister and I thought they smelled SO yummy we decided if they smelled so good just think of what they’d taste like! We put it in our mouth but it wasn’t like food we soon figured out. My mom had those ornaments on our tree for several years (with little teeth marks on them).
Every Christmas morning we have monkey bread for breakfast before digging into gifts….I love that!
My favorite holiday memory is my grandmother standing my her stove, frying up chicken one piece at a time. We never really do the turkey thing…our family is too small.
My favorite memories of the Holidays are my family all lined up in the kitchen at the stove waiting in line for my Dads Golumpkis ( spelling may be off on that one ) Stuffed Cabbage. The whole cooking process tooks hours and hours but the eating seemed like it went in minutes. You actually had to hide them in the fridge it you wanted an extra one or two for later
I can still smell them and see my Dads face – how proud he was that everyone loved them so much
My favorite memories of the holidays are sitting at the dining room table after the meal has been eaten with my entire family for hours drinking wine and talking about old memories. Living such a long way from home is hard, but those times during the holidays are centering and are so important to me!
WOW! What a giveaway!
My favorite holiday memory is kind of a long-standing one. More ritual, than anything. Every year we play a simple dice game and the first year my husband came to Christmas at my family’s he won the dice game and the $600 pot. I’ve been trying to win the pot since age 2 and it just took him one roll, it was great! Hope I’m as lucky and win that food processor!
AWESOME giveaway! Thank you!
Oh, I also am a fan on Facebook!
My favorite memory would have to be waking up at my grandparents’ house when I about about 7 and feeling a huge wave of relief when I saw that Santa had found me, even though we were away from home. I loved getting to spend that day with relatives that I didn’t get to see often and it’s still one of my favorite Christmases.
I loved having a baking “day” with my grandmother and mom. We always take a day and bake our holiday favorites for our families and friends. Today, my Mom and I still take a day to bake during the holiday season and now we are involving my son. But all he seems to do is eat the results!!!
I love Christmas morning opening stockings and having coffee with the family!

My first post! I love reading your site.
My favorite memory is of a Christmas when I was a senior in High School. I was Student Council President and had this lovely idea to do a HUGE toy drive at my high school. It was wildly popular, but being the brilliant 17 y. o. I forgot to organize WHO would receive the toys. Luckily my father is a Superintendent at a local district and he quickly got a list of names from teachers of needy families. So in the school van (we had that many toys) my father and I hand delivered toys to about 20 families. I have never seen such happy faces as kids seeing MY DAD bringing them toys. They were so shocked he was at their house giving them things. This was one of the few times I ever did anything with just my dad- he was always busy with work and I usually got toted around by my mom. SO for me, getting to see my dad as the hero was the coolest feeling.
AH, I missed it! Doggone it!
