Slivered Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Maple Syrup
A flavorful side dish that goes great alongside roasted turkey or salmon and mashed potatoes. If you happen to have any leftovers, add them to scrambled eggs for a delightful vegetable breakfast hash.

Grapefruit & Avocado Salad with Arugula
A light, refreshing citrus dish that pairs well with roasts, ham, turkey, and fish. The ripe bitterness of fresh grapefruit compliments the peppery taste of arugula and rich fat content of avocados in this sumptuous salad.
Rose Family Potato Kugel
This recipe is adapted from Joan Nathan’s wonderful recipe book The Jewish Holiday Kitchen. You could call this a latke by another name: it’s definitely potato-y, onion-y, totally delicious, and a lot less messy to make.
These cute little cookies aren’t difficult to make and are very flexible in terms of what you can add to them. Fill with simmered, mashed prunes; dried apricots or raisins; nuts; or jams and jellies for a tasty treat.
Sweet Potato Tzimmes
Tzimmes is a traditional Jewish sweet stew usually made with sweet potatoes and fruit for Sabbath meals and the fall holiday, Sukkot. Since it is comforting, dense, and rich in taste, try serving it as one of your Hanukkah traditions. Added fruit can include prunes, dried apricots, canned pineapple, raisins, or even candied sharp ginger—whatever sounds appealing to you!
