Apples (and honey) is kind of the big deal here. Check out these 36 apple recipes. I think the apple bourekas from Steamy Kitchen and Honey cake with caramelized apples from Busy in Brooklyn sound awesome!

How about a lentils with pomegranate and swiss chard recipe?

Try a fruity brisket or roast (photo and recipe on in their Rosh Hashana recipe section)


This year, I brought back some lamb chops from a trip to the US. I’m planning a slow-cooked lamb chop recipe with almonds, apricots, and spices. But I’m still planning the rest – it’s a 3 day holiday this year.

Here’s 2011′s Rosh Hashana menu (also a 3-day) and 2013′s RH menu from Mara at Kosher on a Budget, for more inspiration for you.

What are your plans? I’d love to hear!
