Having grown up in a home where traditions were sacred and never to be broken, I spent years trying to find a tzimmes recipe that my family would love. Year after year, I tried recipe after recipe but while my husband and I enjoyed our tzimmes, our children had strong opinions otherwise. Eventually it occurred to me that it was carrots, not tzimmes, that bore special symbolism for Rosh Hashana, so I started making mini carrot muffins instead. End of story, everyone loves them!
