Sweet Holiday Traditions September 30 2016

Sunday night marks the beginning of Rosh Hashanah, The Jewish New Year.  It is a time for family and friends and also includes many festive meals.  Holidays are always a time when tradition takes over.  One big tradition for Rosh Hashanah is to wish everyone a Sweet New Year. That also means lots of sweet recipes for the meals.  I have made the same apple cake for the past 10+ years. It is delicious and I am going to make it again this year. I am also going to try something a little different and add some sweetness to my savory dishes.  Here is amazing recipe for Honey Roasted Carrots using Bee Local Cherry Wood Smoked Honey.  You could substitute almost any root vegetable. I am sure they would all be delicious.

I wish you a sweet, happy and healthy New Year.

Happy Friday,
