Rosh Hashanah 5781

It’s #RoshHashanah🍎🍏🍯 and we are heading into the year 5781. If you’d like additional information regarding this High Holiday, or #Judaism🔯, I will cheerfully send you a list of must-reads. 📚

🍝 This year, I’m passing some of my centuries old recipes down to a friend who is a bigger #Foodie than even me. I’m also making her swear on a stack of Bibles not to give away recipe secrets until I’m dead.

🍛 If you’re looking for something different to check out online, please visit @thepeckishthinker and allow well-written words and beautiful food photos to entertain and inspire you. I’ll be over here, on the corner of #PoisonInLethalDoses and #HowUncensoredCanYouGet. You can also go directly to

L’Shana Tovah
I planted two at the end of August and look forward to adding 4-6 more to different regions next year. We do this to honor loved ones, to memorialize them, to celebrate, etc. Many were planted in my Grandfather’s name after he passed away, so I always associate this gesture with positive energy. The tree will outlive us all.

  1. Thank you so much for the kind shoutout! Hope Rosh Hashanah was enjoyable and filled with lots of delicious food. I would gladly welcome any reading recommendations you have about the holiday as I’d love to know more about the cultural traditions surrounding it. 🙂


    • I will PM you with book recommendations and recipe books. My sect of the faith is very different from the more religious versions, but I was raised with Jewish Mysticism (Kabbalah) and the more traditional aspects of Conservative/Reform Judaism. I’d describe it that way now, but viewed it as Reform growing up until I personally chose a different path for myself during my first year as a psych major. Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year, but I always feel kind of somber about it. This Sunday evening into Monday night is Yom Kippur; the day of atonement. It’s a mixed emotion day for me. The faith itself, for me, is quite introspective, but I was also born into it and my mind isn’t easily brainwashed, so I’m not a follower and I don’t practice anything that doesn’t feel authentic to me. From a food perspective, it is culturally diverse and everyone makes things differently, even if it’s essentially, the same recipe. I kept it very simple this year. The only traditional dish made was noodle kugel. It’s more like dessert, but it’s awesome.
