HAMANTASHEN FOR PURIM
Hamantashen are the best 'cookies' especially for Purim. Thanks to our Makom Friend Robyn who put together this great video with wonderful directions. Recipe is found below. Enjoy and Happy Purim!
ROUND CHALLAH for ROSH HASHANAH
Though challah is delicious every week, it is particularly good on the holidays. On Rosh Hashanah we bake round challah to remind us of the cycle of the calendar year, and the cycle of life. Often people include raisins, apples, cinnamon or other options in their Rosh Hashanah challah.

MATZAH MAKING AT HOME
This year some of us may find we have a little extra time on our hands. Or perhaps we did not get to the store to buy matzah for Passover. No problem. It is so easy to make your own matzah, and you will have the ingredients in your pantry.
CHAROSET - THE SIMPLE KIND
One of the stapes of every seder and seder plate is Charoset. There are so many kinds of charoset out there. This is a very simple Ashkenaz recipe that anyone can make, and it is very flexible with basic ingredients.
CHICKEN SOUP - YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S WAY
There is nothing like a homemade pot of chicken soup. Easy to make, a great food that goes a long way, and tastes delicious. Perfect for Passover or any other time of the year. Matzah balls are of course a must!
BRISKET - EASY AND YUMMY
A basic staple for meat eaters at Jewish holidays is brisket. Perhaps you only cook it twice a year, or perhaps it is a staple in your home. Either way - it is a great main course, for Passover or for any time.
SWEET TURKEY MEATBALLS
Meatballs are often a great appetizer, a wonderful main course, or anything in between. Use turkey meat or red meat and make this delicious entree for Passover or all year long.
