Some of you may be freaking out a bit if you are Jewish, not because you are Jewish, but because you may need to make a dessert tonight for the 2nd night of Rosh Hashanah.
Fear no more! Those fancy Jewish desserts may look daunting but if you cruise the internet, you just may find a simple recipe with a hand holding video that will alleviate all that anxiety and guilt for planning to bring a store bought dessert.
Check out Karen Cahn’s blog, Rustic Measures, and see just how easy this delicacy can be. I’ll be making it!
In closing, I will be starting a month long search for easy and healthy recipes for us all to share for our kid’s lunches to post here on TBK! Please send in a photo of your food, your kid with the food or you and the recipe. We all need each other’s help!
Email it to me at email@example.com or post it in the comments below. Thanks and enjoy!!
