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!
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.

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.

Apple Sorbet
Jamie Stolper
This is a refreshing light dessert for any time of year, but especially during the fall. It is perfect for one of a selection of desserts at a Rosh HaShanah, Sukkot, or Thanksgiving festive meal. It tastes like a smooth frozen applesauce - and I love applesauce! You can vary the flavor somewhat with the apples and the amount of sugar. I'm guessing you could also add a cinnamon stick to the apples while cooking to make cinnamon apple sorbet. Yummy!
