Today I haven’t felt well so this is a short one…just enough to post today’s honey cake recipe. Tomorrow look for a Rosh Hashanah Gift from me to you.

Just a note…I want to say how proud I am of my step-daughter. Rhona made 14 challahs yesterday and is making 11 more today! WTG, Rhona!!! Being out of work for a while made Rhona go crazy, so she decided to go into the challah-making business. She’s just beginning and does it mostly for people from her synagogue. But word of mouth is making business boom for the holidays. She even has my grandson, Marc, working for her! He gets the profits from whatever he makes. Rhona tells me he is an expert braider now. So, it goes to show you, you don’t have to sit back in these lean times. Keep up the good work, Rhona!

My husband is out shopping for Yom Tov groceries. I can’t wait to see what he brings home. I’m going down in a bit to take the brisket out of the freezer so I can make it tomorrow.

Here’s today’s honey cake recipe. Don’t forget, keep your eyes out for tomorrow’s post and in case you can’t stop by tomorrow, I’ll take the time now to wish all of you and yours a Sweet, Happy, Healthy, Wealthy, Love-Filled New Year! L’Shanah Tova Tikatavu.
