Making Shabbat for the first time can definitely be overwhelming.


Since we are at the height of wedding season, we thought it would be nice to make a Shabbat menu focused all on easy, doable but still wow-worthy Shabbat dishes that are perfect for newlyweds (or really anyone!). 


I remember the first Shabbat I made on my own married I was on the phone with my mom every 5 minutes asking her questions. How I would have wished to have a menu like this! 

If you are a newlywed, we have some other great resources for you like an Easy Shabbat Dinner, Recipes for Newlyweds Who Are New to Cooking, and 1 Month Menu Plan for Newlyweds

Happy cooking!
