Being that we are about to enter a long stretch of holiday and shabbat meals, I should be organizing my menu, working on my recipes, making sure I have the groceries I need… but for some reason I just can’t start the cooking yet. Instead, I find myself busy looking for cute decorations and projects for my kids to help them get into the spirit and excitement of Rosh Hashanah.
My beautiful, brilliant and super resourceful niece who just visited us this past shabbos, passed on this adorable idea for a honey dish from Martha Stewart. So easy to do with a melon baller, but a regular spoon would work too.
My girls and I also had fun making cut-out cookies with Rosh Hashanah themed cookie cutters I picked up at Candy and Chocolate Creations. We found a delicious and easy cookie recipe from comfybelly.com (one of my favorite websites for cooking and baking inspiration), completely grain-free and refined sugar free. Mixing, shaping and cutting the dough was almost as fun as eating the apple, siddur and shofar shaped cookies cookies!
