A Belated Happy Jew-Year

Last week we Jews celebrated the beginning of 5775.  As always, Rosh Hashannah has lots of old favorites around the table- both food and people- and some new additions.  Once again, I cooked for several days and didn’t photograph much…  But I’ll share what I did.

I wish you all a happy, sweet, joyful year.  I’m looking forward to finding my own “roga”- serenity- this year, in whatever form that takes.

Now, on to the food!

I’m not cooking as much these days but I’ll be back, I’m sure.  Meanwhile, have a wonderful beginning to 5775!
