According to all those weird calendars that track made-up holidays and months, October is Cookie Month – and, well, we’ll take any excuse to indulge in some of our favorite cookie recipes! Here are a few of the Jewishly inspired cookies we love.

Our fondest memories often center on family gatherings and delicious meals that include foods related to specific Jewish holidays – matzah brei on Passover, latkes during Hanukkah, or cheesecake on Shavuot

Fire up the grill, Independence Day is coming! Add a little bit of Jewish flavor to your American celebration with one of these original, Jewish-inspired recipes.

Whether you’re preparing a meal for four or for 40, making a successful holiday dinner can be an overwhelming, frantic experience. But with some advance planning, it doesn’t have to be!
