L'Shana Tova! Pass (on) the Taiglach

My mother recently went on and on about the Rosh Hashonah honey cake she's baking for the Korean women she's teaching to read and speak English. "It's a real gooey mess to make," she told me. Proudly.

And my first thought? Good thing she's not baking taiglach for them. Taiglach, a pile of fried or baked honey-coated sticky tooth-cracking dough balls studded with nuts and candied cherries is dental work waiting to happen.

As I write this I'm wondering if anyone has checked the correlation between pushing taiglach and having a dentist in the immediate family. Bet there is.

Happy 5769!
