I was hoping that my good friend Medad over at his right word would be honoring us with waffles today or at least posting a recipe for some. After all, he did win the waffle iron at the First International Jewish Bloggers Conference last month. Well, it seems that Winkie's idea for kosher cooking involves consulting with the New York Times about eating in Brooklyn.
Well, we'll just have to celebrate Rosh Hashana in a more traditional way. A good place to begin is with The Rebbitzen's Husband who has a must read post all about the symbolism of the foods we eat at the traditional holiday meal.
Once we have the theory in place we can get down to basics with Carolyn at Baking Bites with some good avice about handling honey in recipes. Ilana-Davita has a beautiful Carrot Torte for us as well as Apples ‘n Honey Cake both of which I would like to try (if I get this post done in time). Leora is making Chicken Soup over there in HP and Mrs. S. is thinking about Tzimmis posted at Our Shiputzim: A Work In Progress but don't be suprised if there's a bit of sawdust mixed in.
The dawning of the new year is a time for reflection and I would suggust reading Ilana Davita on her transition from treif to kosher where she brinings up some points which many of us take for granted.
For some food for thought read Shemitta in Action and Tossing Accusations in Kashrut at Shiloh Musings, two posts which relate to halacha of and in the land of Israel.
There will be a few days in the coming month which are not either holidays of the day before/after the holiday and we just may have to come up with something to eat on a regular Monday or Thursday. Don't fret! KCC to the rescue! Frumteacher presents Vegetarian moussaka and muse has a Chocolate Cake for Celiacs--No Flour! posted at me-ander which sounds worth checking out if only for the conversation piece. Leora chimes in with Tomato Recipes saying, "Did you know in Eastern Europe some Jews thought tomatoes were not kosher because they had never seen one? Don't miss JoeSettler, ever the idealist, this time out to improve Israeli pizza and while we're over the 'green line' you can get some ideas from muse about Quick, Easy, Healthy Cooking at me-ander.
If all this cooking is too much you might consider a restaraunt or two. Check the Floors first if you're going to recommend one to muse. Ahuva Goldstand of Jerusalemite blog gives us a quick rundown on Jerusalem's growing Kosher cuisine scene, and the latest trend of Non-Kosher restaurants going Kosher at Israel's best kosher restaurants in Tel Aviv? Uh, no. - Jerusalemite.net and Tastes like Jerusalem - Jerusalemite.net
Carolyn suggested The Hummus Blog, saying, "A whole blog devoted to hummus! This recipe looked interesting. Haven't tried it yet, but I'm a hummus and yogurt fan. Never considered making dairy hummus before..."
muse has some food musings in Back, Yet Again and wonders Maybe It Was The Food.
That concludes this edition of the Kosher Cooking Carnival.
I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all my fellow bloggers, blog readers and k'lal yisroel a happy healthy and sweet new year!
May we be worthy of redemption this year and meet in Jerusalem.
