Sukkos Recipe Roundup

Here’s what I was supposed to do yesterday. I was supposed to photograph this amazing appetizer recipe and post it for you folks. But then I got home from work at 7:30. You read that right. Work. On a Sunday. I don’t recommend it. I got cooking right away, and at 2 in the morning I was wise enough to realize that posting the recipe at that point would have been a really bad idea. So I went to sleep for like, four whole hours.

Anyhoo. Here’s a handy dandy list of stuff you should totally be making for Sukkot. They are a sampling of recipes from the archives, so feel free to dig around for even more! New recipes are a’comin, I promise. Wait, I don’t. I have so much left to do! But I really do hope they come, so stay tuned!

Hope you all got some good ideas here! I know I did (funny how it takes posting this to remind me of my own recipes, huh?). Gemar Chasima tova to all of my Jewish friends and readers, and I will be back after Yom Kippur with some new recipes. (Or maybe before. Who knows?) Thanks for stopping by! -Miriam

    Love how there are so many more deserts than “real food” dishes… I made the zucchini sticks (waiting for buzzer to taste them!!!) and the herb chicken is marinating in my fridge until tomorrow. Hunting for something else… Thanks!
