Honey Glazed Chicken with Garlic Confit
Braised Brisket with Red Wine and Honey
I made this braised brisket today for our family Seder, and it was delicious. At serving time, we passed the reheated broth over the sliced brisket, which was delicious.
Easiest brisket I’ve ever made. My new go-to recipe. Thanks!!beth s.
Pomegranate Roasted Beets with Goat Cheese
Potato Latkes with Apple-Date Chutney
Potato latkes are a very subjective dish–everyone has their secret ingredient or step to make them come out crispy and yet soft on the inside. This recipe gets it all right.
It’s the first time I’ve used a recipe, and just like all the other recipes I’ve tried on this website–it’s a keeper. I plan on making these and two other latke recipes from this site for my holiday get-together–who doesn’t like a party where everything is fried. Yum!marilyn
Goat Cheese with Honey
A beautiful apple jelly recipe with precise instructions. I doubled the recipe, and it came out perfect.sumeet
Roast Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Dates
This is the best challah recipe I’ve ever used. I’ve made A LOT of challah, but never have I achieved the springy, fluffy quality this one has!
I absolutely love it and will definitely be making it again. The outside had a nice firm texture–very pretty and dark–while the inside was light and soft. I loved it!!achilles
Figs in Port
My 6-year-old son requested this delicious apple cake for his birthday! A family favorite!!katie

Rosh Hashanah FAQs
There are several traditional Rosh Hashanah foods that herald the beginning of the Jewish New Year and symbolize the hopes for a prosperous year ahead.
Apples and honey are two of the most common foods traditionally consumed during the holiday. They can be served in sweet or savory dishes and are often enjoyed by simply dipping apple slices in honey. Their sweetness is symbolic of hope for a good year.
Challah is also very popular during the holiday but is specifically baked into a round shape to symbolize the infinite cycle of years and seasons. It is frequently sweetened with apples or raisins.
Pomegranates are another sweet fruit consumed at Rosh Hashanah. They’re frequently eaten as the “new fruit,” which hasn’t been eaten yet in the year. The fruit’s many seeds symbolize good deeds and merits to perform and acquire in the upcoming year.
Some Jews avoid nuts during Rosh Hashanah, as the numerical value of the Hebrew word for walnuts (egozim) is the same as the word for sin. It is also believed that eating nuts can increase the production of phlegm, which can be disruptive to prayers.
Rosh Hashanah is celebrated with sweet foods for a sweet and prosperous year, so many avoid vinegary or bitter foods. Dairy and meat are not typically served at the same meal.
Rosh Hashanah celebrates the Jewish New Year. It’s held in September and lasts for two days. It’s celebrated by enjoying symbolic foods, such as apples, honey, and dates, engaging in prayer, and blowing the shofar horn.
