We went apple picking last weekend, and I had grand plans to make my Nannie’s Jewish apple cake to share with you.
But then my boss sent me to Florida. Where it was hot and rainy and my hair frizzed (which probably shouldn’t have bothered me since I was wearing a hard hat the whole time, but I’m kind of vain about my hair, so it did). Not that you care about my hair. You care about apple cake. Which I didn’t make, because I was busy flying to and from Florida and attempting to tame my frizz.
I have faith that my aunt will be making Nannie’s apple cake on Monday, so don’t worry, I will not be apple cake deprived. But I still owe you all an apple cake, and I promise it will happen – eventually. Trust me, Nannie’s apple cake is worth waiting for. But in the meantime, Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) is upon us and we need to make some plans to stuff the bellies of our friends and families with apple and honey and challah and all sorts of other yummy treats.
So, below are some of my favorite Rosh Hashanah recipe ideas. Happy New Year!
This Chestnut, Gorgonzola and Apple Tart makes a really beautiful side dish.
Noodle Kugel is, of course, a holiday tradition. And New England Noodle Kugel with drunken cranberries is even more awesome.
This Fennel Apple Salad is a great Rosh Hashanah side, but also works as a quick lunch along with a big loaf of crusty bread.
These lovely Apples ‘N Honey Pancakes are a yummy Rosh Hashanah brunch.
