Welcome to our blog!
See what's brewing!
There are a handful of traditions that have lasted my entire life, however there is one that really sticks out. It's the day where my family stands in a garage & ends up smelling like hot oil!
And it's the BEST! We call this day Weinie day aka making my favorite cookie day!!
Although Weinie's are not originally called this, it's the name I grew up calling them. This very secret recipie- and it's so secret I don't even know it- has been passed down through our family for roughly 100 years! The recipe is my great grandfathers, grandmothers. Every year, around Christmas time, we gather together & make these delish cookies.
After frying, the cookies are left to cool. Then, once they're cooled, they go right into a paper bag with sugar & we call it a day! People ask me what they taste like- and I just can never describe it! The only way I know how to do the cookie justice is to tell you that they're magical!
One of my favorite moments of Weinie Day 2016 was at one point, it was just us kids in the garge working on the weinies. It was that moment when we realized we're the next Weinie generation & that we're more than old enough to handle this tradition. It's going to be so much fun once everybody eventually has kids & they are raised on this tradition. It's really one that we know we won't ever let go of & will make sure the generation after us knows all there is to know to keep this alive! Because a world without Wienies would be a very sad world!
What are some of your favorite family traditions?
