Blueberry tart

We got through Passover and now if you are anything like me the fifth question you are posing is; how do I consume as much flour, yeast, wheat and grains in one normal meal?  Can I have a pizza topped with pasta or a slice of cake adorned with a big chocolate chip cookie?  The answer is yes, but I think we can devise a more palatable way to refuel and bounce back from the matzo coma we are all experiencing.

How does, crispy fried chicken with a golden crust and juicy tender meat sound?

Why not pair that with a fabulous (pareve) risotto featuring porcini mushrooms melding into the creamy Arborio rice.

And later on enjoy a juicy blueberry tart, with a home baked buttery crust and plump tart blueberries oozing with purple goodness.  The recipes represent some of my favorites from my first two cookbooks; Recipes Remembered: A Celebration of Survival (May 1,2011) and The Kosher Carnivore (St. Martin’s Press, fall 2011).  They are relatively easy to prepare and are sure to bring you back to carbohydrate nirvana.

Enjoy!
