Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is a two-day celebration that usually falls around mid- to late-September or early October. The food customs of this cheerful holiday involve sweet foods to symbolize hopes for a "sweet" new year. Traditionally, a blessing is said over challah bread, and apples are dipped in honey while saying a prayer for the year to come. Pomegranate seeds are another common food consumed during the holiday, as each seed is meant to symbolize all of the good deeds that you will do in the next year. Whether you're planning on celebrating the holiday or not, embrace these seasonal recipes and the coming of a new start.

When you're craving fall comforts, cook up this quick and easy weeknight dinner. This dish is perfect for easing into fall and comes together in one pan to boot. This dish also works beautifully with pork chops—a twist that's weeknight-fast yet fit for company and makes us simply giddy for fall. Sub 4 (6-ounce) bone-in pork chops for the chicken thighs, searing 5 minutes on each side. Like the thighs, the chops will finish cooking in the apple mixture.
