Our Holiday Menu Plan for Rosh Hashanah was so popular we decided to modify it and add a whole bunch of new recipes for Succot! Enjoy!
I always like to add a few new recipes to my menus for the Holidays. I’ve compiled a list below of some of my favorite Holiday recipes. Mix and match from each section to create your version of The Ultimate Menu, or just take a few to add to your regular holiday menu and put a little excitement on the table.
P.S. If you live in a colder climate like I do, don’t forget to check out my warm dessert list below- it’s gonna be COLD out there!
