Round Challah for the New Year (Plain, with raisins, with dried cranberries)
Jamie Stolper
Here is a recipe from which you can make three variations of the traditional round challah for the high holidays. I have always found raisin challah a bit too sweet, and have therefore preferred the plain version. But I've discovered a new favorite, challah with dried cranberries - pretty to look at and with just the right tart-sweet taste. This recipe will make 2 large or 3 medium challot. Make all one kind, or, as I like to do, try one of each and please everybody.

Rachel's Honey Vinaigrette
Rachel Silverstein
Food Editor's note: This delicious salad dressing is perfect for any meal, but especially for a Rosh HaShanah dinner because of the honey. It is a breeze to mix up and keeps in the fridge for a long time. Rachel is my youngest niece, and I'm hoping for some new recipes from her!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs
Vivienne Kalman
These meatballs are especially appropriate for Rosh Hashanah to symbolize the sweet "happy occasions" and the sour "not so happy occasions" that every new year brings. Editor's Note: These will disappear quickly - everyone wants "just one more." Make at least a double batch and, if you have any leftovers, freeze them for a future meal.

Cranberry Brisket
Arlene Levin via Sue Friedman
Food Editor’s Note:  Sue got this from her friend Arlene Levin and says that it’s her favorite “so easy it’s embarrassing” recipe!  Try it for yourself and I’m sure you’ll agree.  It's sweet for Rosh HaShanah, but not too sweet, and a great dish for entertaining a crowd.

Chicken Marvelosa
Norene Gilletz
This elegant chicken dish is marvelous for any special occasion, especially the Jewish High Holidays as it contains honey, wine, and dried fruit.  This recipe is a triple blessing – it's easy, can be doubled for a large crowd, and can be prepared in advance.  It's guaranteed to inspire rave reviews.

Honey and Ginger Glazed Carrots
Jamie Stolper
Many people like to serve carrots with a Rosh Hashanah dinner, as they are naturally sweet and provide good color and texture to a dinner plate.  But often the carrots come out too soft, too crunchy, too sweet, too gingery, or otherwise not up to expectations.  This recipe is a very easy one that leaves little room for variation in the final product.

Linda’s Layered Apple Cake
Linda Weisberg
Food Editor’s Note:  This is perfect for a Rosh HaShanah dessert or for any special occasion.  The layers of apple are visible after baking and look beautiful in the rich cake.  Linda recommends Granny Smith apples and, although she usually glazes the cake, for a less sweet (and pareve) version you can just sprinkle with powdered sugar for a pretty presentation.
