It’s Rosh Chodesh Adar today, and that means we can legitimately talk Purim. This is only, like, my favorite topic. There’s a reason I’ve had this year’s theme picked out for the last eight months.
On that note, this week I’ll be posting a recipe for hamentaschen with soft cookie outsides, “best of both worlds” insides, and corners that stay closed during baking. After that, I’ll share my easy honey beer bread muffins — one of my favorite ways to get into the Purim “spirit.”
At the dinner table, though, I’m starting the week with a true-blue Israeli meal of falafel (fries on top, naturally). Rosh Chodesh Adar is my aliyahversary, and this year is good ol’ number three. Three! Years! It’s a nice feeling.
