It’s almost Easter which means it’s spring, which means it’s time for Easter-themed ice cream treats, and for sweets like chocolate bunnies.

What could be more Easter-like than Easter egg ice cream? To make them, you’ll need recipes for milk chocolate and white chocolate ice cream.

Rosh Hashanah Dessert Recipe: Plum Cake from Melissa Clark, with Chozen Ice Cream

For Rosh Hashanah, ditch the traditional honey cake and try Melissa Clark’s plum cake, maybe with a scoop of Chozen’s intensely rich kosher ice cream, on top.  (Mix up your holidays and pick Matzoh Crunch.)

Clark has a new cookbook out–In he Kitchen with A Good Appetite–which I’ll review later this week. Meanwhile, she continues to write her breezy recipe column every week in the Times. Last week, she offered up a recipe for plum cake to for Rosh Hashanah. It sounds divine, and maybe even a little nutritious.That’s appropriate, after all, for wishing your loved ones a happy, healthy new year!

Who can think of shtetl food like brisket and stuffed cabage when it’s 110 degrees in the shade?  But for Zabar’s, the venerable Jewish food emporium on Broadway, it’s apparently not too early to begin urging you to plan your New Year’s or Yom Kippur Break Fast menu.  So if cooking is not your thing on the High Holidays, check out their offerings.
