15 Cran-tastic Cranberry Recipes

For as long as I can remember, my favorite part of our Thanksgiving and Christmas meals was almost always the cranberry sauce.  I don’t know why…probably because my dad made it from scratch and it just made everything taste 1,000 times better, but I’m a sucker for those little tart berries!

And though they pack a big punch, cranberries are actually delicious in basically any type of food.  Combine them with cream cheese, goat cheese, or orange zest for a zing of flavor…bake them into cakes, muffins, cookie bars, or add them to smoothies and oatmeal.

8 Apple and Honey Recipes for Rosh Hashanah

It should come as no surprise that Jewish people love food.  We have holidays that celebrate the fall harvest, we eat doughnuts and other foods cooked in oil to celebrate Hanukkah, the Passover story is TOLD with food, and we even deny ourselves our one great pleasure (eating) on Yom Kippur when we have to repent our sins.  Needless to say, there are going to be a lot of HANGRY Jews roaming the streets come September 30th…

But one of my favorite culinary traditions in the Jewish culture is eating apples and honey to celebrate the new year.  The Jewish calendar is lunar for reasons I still don’t understand…but that means we celebrate our new year in September or October rather than December and January.  This year Rosh Hashanah, or head/beginning of the year, is September 21st…and what better way to welcome in a sweet new year than with these tasty apple and honey recipes!

The tradition of eating apples and honey goes back several years and is meant to fill the new year with sweetness.  The reasoning behind the apple is most likely because it’s associated with the Garden of Eden and the honey is not only sweet, but could be symbolic of Israel.  Whatever the TRUE reason, I love the tradition and, honestly, these two flavors go so well together that reasoning shouldn’t matter…it’s just delicious!

So here are 8 tasty apple and honey recipes that you can enjoy to welcome in the new Jewish new year…or just to eat because these are all amazing!
