Hi Norma and to all the readers on Linda’s beautiful blog – I wish all of you a blessed and happy Rosh Hashana. As you’ve written Norma, I too have loved and enjoyed Linda’s blog throughout this year – it’s one of the very first blogs I discovered when first entering the world of blogs, and it continues to be one of my favourites. Thank you so much, Linda, for all the beautiful photos, the yummy recipes, and the thoughts, memories, stories and anecdoes as well as travel adventures that have accompanied each blog post you’ve shared with us.

La Shana T’ova!

Hi Linda, Greek Girl from Queens and all other readers of this blog, I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year.

Linda, I was wondering if you can share your Yom Kippur menu for both Friday night and the break fast. I am curious what you prepare. As always, the biscotios were great and we also enjoyed the honey cake very much.

Thanks again for all the time and effort you put into this blog. It is appreciated!!!!
