  1. Love the recipe ideas! We are making all RH meals so some inspiration is much needed and appreciated. If I get ambitious I might even try the London broil! (Btw, check out this recipe for pomegranate molasses: I’ve seen it available online as well but I don’t know if it’s hechshered.)

    • THANK YOU! Oh my gosh, that looks so easy. And I have some POM juice in the fridge, so I’ll use that instead of squeezing *shudder* pomegranates. I might need to cut the sugar, but I’ll figure that out. THANKS! 🙂

  2. Thanks for the inspiration! The butternut squash kugel sounds yummy and yes, the apples dipped in honey are very cute. Has anyone tried the kugel recipe? I’d like to hear how it turned out.

    • I have a very similar recipe using frozen butternut squash that’s one of my go-to easy Shabbat side dishes. It’s very tasty if you like sweet kugels. I have substituted baking Splenda for the sugar and you can’t really tell the difference.

  3. Hi Mara,
    Love all the recipes.. can’t wait to try some.
