I took a few months off from my free monthly calendar download, but had time early this week to create one for November, actually at the beginning of the month.
November's calendar features "The Last Piece of Honey Cake" a small oil I just completed last month of a dessert my husband made from scratch for my in-law's Rosh Hashanah dinner. It's a traditional recipe that he found on Chabad.org, by Marcy Goldman, from her cookbook A Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking and featured on Cook it Kosher by Miriam Szokovski. It was a big hit with everyone, despite not having the Nordic Ware Heritage Bundt Pan that created the gorgeous relief in her recipe. (I might have to pick one up as a gift for my husband.) This last morsel was painted from life, prior to it being gobbled up. This cake would be tasty any time of year, and makes a great breakfast treat.
Enjoy your November and may it be sweet and full of family and friends. If you happen to make the recipe, let me know!

Sometimes called the Kitchen God's Artist, I'm balancing mothering two energetic sons, our new pup, Cider, while making and teaching art. TraillWorks is the apron under which I create and teach. My own art develops mostly in my home studio, but is often spurred through my teaching, and travels. I just relocated to Durham, NC, from West Orange, NJ, so my studio is in renovation right now.
