I've spent 8-12 hours making certain desserts, and I can honestly say I love it. But there are plenty of times I am sick of the kitchen, and would prefer to whip up something that takes about 15 minutes. Enter these muffins. With the fall-friendly flavors of apples and cinnamon and the ease of mixing everything in one bowl with a whisk, you'll make these again and again.

A breakfast or snack redolent with autumnal apples and cinnamon.

Special To The Jewish Week

Whiskey — wherever it is made, and in whatever style — is a great beverage for the winter.  Just a few sips can warm the gullet, and take a bit of the chill off the coldest of winter nights. 

All whiskeys were once almost universally considered kosher. But in the last few decades the kashrut of whiskey has come up for debate.

Koval’s Chicago Whiskey is best served chilled or over ice.

Special To The Jewish Week

Next weekend is the dreaded three-day yom tov, when the two days of Rosh HaShanah meld right into Shabbat, and you spend three days alternatively sleeping, eating and bonding with family members.

With so much to prepare and cook and plan, it is nice to have some things you can make in advance. While most pastries deteriorate with age, and are best either the first or second day they are made, there are recipes that are still great the second, third or even fourth day they’re made, and some that even improve with age.
