It’s 5 o’clock, and you’re leaving the office in search of some post-work libations and snacks before dinner. You could go the traditional happy hour route — where you’re limited to a few drinks and small bites within a short window of time — or you could up the ante and visit a Japanese izakaya.
This Saturday is Purim, a lively festival often dubbed the Jewish Mardi Gras. Stephanie Rosenbaum shares a tasty recipe for Gluten-Free Hamantaschen, the traditional triangle-shaped cookies that symbolizes the holiday.
Happy (post-) Purim. I should have written this post last week but, frankly, I forgot all about Purim this year. I’m not good with dates. And I’m not a Jew, though I have been told many times by Jewish friends that I am, in fact, Jew-ish.
And that makes me exceptionally happy.
Now, I bet you are wondering, “Why the photo of the lady with the enormous décolletage and the even more enormous hat? What on earth does it have to do with Purim or those delicious, Purim-related delicacies, Hamantaschen?”
Please let me explain…
