Hallel is a song of praise that is sung in synagogue on holidays and is said as the second to last step of the seder, while Nirtza is the final step that bring it all home. We joyfully say “Next Year In Jerusalem!” as the seder comes to a close. With Passover in 1 day and this countdown coming to a close for this year there are so many last minute details to take care of, but when I mull over what has just passed I am thankful that I took part in this countdown as I am a lot further along because of it.

The last step to think about is packing up after the holiday is complete. I know that seems like the end of Passover is a while away, the days will fly by because of the time you will spend with family and friends. Here are some tips on packing up after the holiday has come to a close.

Fill Those Containers: Make sure you have plastic containers and/or boxes ready for after Passover so that you can wrap everything up in one go. I try to pack up my Passover items in categories so I can easily find it next year. I put all of my pots, pans, dishes, and you name it kitchen utensils together, haggadahs, seder plate and any books can go together and then all the miscellaneous items in the final boxes.

Label, Label, Label: Once you have put all of the items in the boxes, it is extremely important to label them properly. At this point your best friend with be masking tape and a black permanent marker. Make sure to write a brief note of what is in the box so that you can easily find what you need next year.

Use Up Your Passover Food: I don’t know about you, but I usually get to the end of Passover and still have kosher for Passover products left. Have fun with your leftover products! There are a lot things you can make that aren’t for Passover that can be made with Passover products. Also don’t hesitate to give your unopened non-perishable foods to your local Jewish Food Bank.

Make A List:If you’re anything like me you will get to next Passover and realize that yet another year has gone by and you forgot to get x,y or z for Passover. Make a list of any items  you wished you would have had this year, yes a new food processor or slow cooker counts, and tape the list to the outside of your boxes. You can also keep any grocery lists and recipes you made in a folder and put it into one of the boxes.

Thanks so much for sticking with us through this Passover Countdown journey. Check out all of this year’s Passover Countdown posts here. And don’t forget Chag Kasher V’Sameach and May We Be Next Year In Jerusalem!!

Pesach (Passover) is upon us!  Welcome to the healthiest religious cleanse world, unless of course you’re like 99.9% of Jews and enjoy your fair share of meats, kugels and pesach cakes (yum?) throughout the week.  Despite the countless seder guests you are likely to have plenty of leftovers to get you through some of chol hamoed, but when those run out and you get sick of the matzo, enjoy these 15 matzo free recipes which make for 3  (or more!) matzo free meals.



There’s something about pesach that leaves one either achingly full or searching the fridge as if you haven’t seen food in weeks.  Strike a healthy balance with hearty, meatless meal that should leave you with leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day.  Start with the Creamy Carrot Bisque, followed by Zucchini and Potato TortillaDrunk Tuscan Tuna Steaks, and Grilled Eggplant and Roasted Pepper Salad with Preserved Lemon.  End the meal with something sweet such as Cheesecake Ice Cream with Crumbled Macaroons.




For a light dairy meal start with the Creamy Asparagus Soup, which will make you wonder why you don’t cook more dairy based soups.  Followed by Stuffed Endive Boats and Silver Dollar Smoked Salmon Stuffed Potato Pancakes.  Enjoy a hearty slice of Lemon, Lavender and Almond Cake (lavender is optional) for dessert.

Stuffed Endive Boats



If by mid-chol hamoed you find yourself dreaming of the second days of seders, have no fear an easy meat meal is well within reach.  Start with a Seder Plate Salad, which honestly could be a meal in and of itself!  For a main try the Garlic Lemon Chicken with Portobello Carpaccio with ChimichurriRoasted Carrots and Crispy Shallots.  And if there’s still room enjoy these adorable Macaroon “Cake” Pops for dessert.

5 Ways To Swap The Mayo with Babaganoush


April 1st 2015

Mayo is a very popular condiment. Aside from the classic tuna and egg salads made with mayo, many people include it in every sandwich. The fact that it is also parve means even we kosher keepers can include it at every meal and there some people that do.

On Passover, regular mayo which is often made with canola oil is not available and instead the Passover versions don’t quite compare. On a holiday when every ingredient matters, it is best to try something with a little more pizazz. Avocado is always a good all natural choice, but you still have to mash it up and some flavor. For something even more like mayo, try Babaganoush.

Sabra Babagnoush is made with mayo and is made kosher for Passover without losing any of it’s great taste and texture. The roasted eggplant even displaces some of the fat compared to pure mayo, so that is a bonus.

Here are 5 Recipe ideas where babganoush will bring out the best flavor.

1. Egg Salad

Egg salad is really perfect with babaganoush. You can keep it simple or use this recipe for the full Israeli Egg Salad experience.

2. Tuna Salad

Make your tuna salad with babaganoush and add some schug for spice and celery for crunch.

3. Deviled Eggs

Try making deviled eggs with babaganoush instead of mayo.

4. Chicken Salad

After the success of this Chicken Baked in Babaganoush recipe, a chicken salad is a no brainer.

5. Potato Salad

Potato salad with babganoush and some roast peppers would be a perfect mix.

What do you think of these swaps, any other ideas? Please share in the comments below.

Barech – The Seder Can Set You Free


April 1st 2015

Passover night revolves around the Seder. The word Seder (order) is related to the word siddur (prayer book) because both involve an important order of prayers or in the case of Passover, actions, which we follow one after the other. The Pesach Seder is divided into fifteen steps. Each one of those steps, in the correct order, is crucial in creating the right frame of mind needed to experience the exodus from Egypt our ancestors went through more than three thousand years ago.

What’s the connection between the number fifteen and the Passover Seder?

The talmud tells us that there were fifteen steps that a person walked up to enter the Temple in Jerusalem. Levites stood in each of these steps singing fifteen psalms of King David which are called the fifteen “songs of ascent”. Add to this that God’s name contains within it four letters, the first two of which have the numerical value of fifteen.

Just like those steps outside the temple, the Passover Seder if followed correctly, permits us to elevate ourselves to a higher spiritual place. Steps are only helpful if they take us somewhere. In the case of Passover, they can set us free.

No recipes today, but let us help you take those fifteen steps plus more with our Passover Countdown.  Sign up to get them in your email here, make sure to check off Passover Countdown.

I love talking to foodies. Cause I know you know what it’s like to fall asleep and dream about breakfast. I always have these grand plans to wake up early and make any number of sweet and savory breakfast-like-a-king spreads.

Problem is, in addition to being a foodie I’m a snooze-y. You know the kinda gal who keeps pressing snooze and rolling over until the last possible minute. And then I press snooze and roll over at least one more time, for good luck.

This baby of breakfast – my Creamy Peach and Banana Matzo Brie Bake – can be assembled the night before, when you have all the energy in the world to think about the morning meal. Just pop it in the oven when you wake up (after snoozing) and by the time everyone is washed and dressed you have a piping hot, creamy, sweet, fabulous, start-the-day-off-right, kinda meal.

Watch just how easy and crazy delicious this is.

Tzafun – A Prize For The Afikoman

Finding the Afikomen is always an exciting event in my house. The young ones take it seriously, but sometimes the adults take it even more seriously. When all the kids were young, my Dad hid it in the same spot for several years; it was always under his chair! Once we realized his trick, and he had to change up the hiding spot, searching for the Afikoman became serious business. My family has never been big on expensive prizes, more fun free prizes, like not having to take out the garbage, or the good old fashioned option of a few dollar bills after the holiday ends. Here are a few ideas for prizes, most of which don’t cost too much, for children (and adults) of all ages.

Tzafun - Toys

For the younger ones:

The special toy they have been wanting

Their favorite superhero or princess items

Moses action figure

If you have lots of kids at your Seder just pick up some fun little toys from your local dollar store

For the older ones:

Someone else will take out the garbage for a week

Allow them to stay up a set amount of time after bedtime

Almond Butter and Jelly Bar

For kids of all ages:

One-On-One time with Mom and Dad at their favorite restaurant

Bake them their favorite dessert – like this Almond Butter and Jelly Slice Passover Dessert for example

They can pick the dinner menu for a week

A chocolate seder plate

Shulchan Orech – Setting A Beautiful...

Tablescaping isn’t everybody’s forte. Making a beautiful table for Passover is important, but it’s sometimes the last thing on your mind when you are in the midst of cleaning and cooking. I believe that when your guests arrive and see a table set in a special way that they feel special and the food might taste even that much better because of how the table is set. Because tablescaping is definitely not my best skill, here are a few tips that I will use myself this Passover.

passover tablescape

Pick a theme: It is sometimes easier when creating the design for your table that you pick a theme to base the color scheme on. It’s also fun to create name place cards based on the theme and even the style of tablecloth. Some theme ideas are: the desert (click for full instructions on how to make the above table), freedom, or even the ten plagues. Give your kids a chance to help with your theme by making name place cards or even decorating a tablecloth.


Layer, Layer, Layer: According to The Jewish Hostess the key to tablecaping your Seder table is to start with the tablecloth and then layer the chargers, linen napkins, plates and napkin rings. Also, you can start with a bold colored tablecloth and then more subtle napkins etc. or a white tablecloth and go crazy with the colors of the other layers. Try different textures and colors for your linens and tableware; it will add a WOW factor everyone will remember! Also check out the article by The Jewish Hostess because she highlights  a lot of great themes and ideas.

Passover Tablescape

Pick Tableware Fit For Royalty: When you are picking your tableware for the Seder remind yourself that we are meant to feel royal. You don’t have to pick expensive items, but pick something that will make you and your guests feel special. Whether its a special charger to go under the plates or fabulous napkin rings try to pick at least one piece that has a WOW factor!

What To Feed The Kids Before The Seder


March 30th 2015

The only thing more daunting than what to feed the kids before Shabbos is what to feed the kids before the Seder.  You need them to be satisfied enough so that they can hold out for the meal (which will inevitably be served later than you anticipate) yet at the same time there are varying customs and traditions with regard to the consumption of matzo in advance of the Passover holiday.

Starting as early as right after Purim (30 days before Passover), or from the 1st day of the Jewish month of Nissan, or from erev/the eve of Passover people refrain from eating matzo and matzo products, such as matzo meal.  The idea behind this concept is to fully fulfill the mitzvah of waiting and enjoying matzo at the Passover Seder, which is on the 15th day of the Jewish month of Nissan.  It’s an ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’ kinda thing.  Most Rabbis say the custom does not apply to children too young to understand the story of the Exodus from Egypt but in deference to this custom I am listing here 4 matzo-free, perfect, pre-Passover bites to have on hand in advance of the Seder.

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes 

Sounds complicated but in fact it’s super easy.  This sweet treat satisfies pre Seder.  Wash the skin well and eat it too!  It’s got lots of vitamins and nutrients.

Spaghetti Squash Bites

These low carb mini muffins are as delicious as they are adorable.  Double and triple the recipe cause you can’t eat just one – and that’s perfectly ok.  We just want you to be prepared for the “WE WANT MORE!” hungry kiddie chants.

Passover Crepes with Cream Cheese and Smoked Salmon

Make tons of these as they freeze and reheat incredibly well.  Treat the crepes like you would a tortilla and fill and roll with anything your kids like – cream cheese + smoked salmon, cream cheese + jam or fruit, we like cream cheese + avocado, lettuce, tomato, and onion.  You get my point here I’m sure.

Zucchini Spaghetti Alfredo - Watch The Video

Follow the directions closely, careful not to overcook and if the kids close their eyes they’ll think they’re eating pasta.

Wishing you and your family the happiest, most kosher Passover ever!

Korech – Top Ten Matzo Recipes

Not everyone likes Passover matzo. There are some that say eating it can feel like you are eating dry wall paper paste (my Mom for example). I believe that matzo just has to be prepared the right way. During the Seder we take part in the step of Korech, where we eat a sandwich of matzo, maror and charoset, but for the rest of the holiday don’t hesitate to dig in to a sandwich of cream cheese and jam, my favorite! If you don’t keep Gebrokts (where you don’t allow the matzo to come in contact with any liquid) you have many choices as to what to do with your matzo. I have compiled a list of 10 matzo recipes that you should definitely try!!

Banana and Peach Matzo Brie Bake is the perfect matzo brie recipe to start off your day during Passover. It’s sweet and delicious and you can prep it ahead and then serve it hot when everyone is ready.

Wild Mushroom Matzo Stuffing

This savory Passover Wild Mushroom Matzo Stuffing recipe is great a side dish and it’s super easy to make. You can bake it in a turkey or bake it on its own. All of your guests won’t be able to wait to try a taste of this delicious stuffing.


Who knew you could still eat french toast on Passover. Try this 3 layered French Toast Matzo with Dill Cream Cheese. You won’t be able to get enough of it!


Whole Wheat Matzo Granola is great as a snack or for breakfast. The fruit and nuts add a sweet and salty element to the recipe and the matzo adds an additional crunch. Make sure to try it with whole wheat matzo. Believe me, it’s worth it!

Matzo Nachos

This Matza Nachos recipe is a must try. It’s a great recipe for lunch or a snack l and it’s especially wonderful because it’s not too difficult to make but it will definitely impress!

butternut matzo lasagna passover

There is no way to get through Passover without trying this Butternut Squash Matzo Lasagna recipe. It’s so easy to replace lasagna noodles with matzo that you will want to make this recipe all year round!

Arugala Matzo Pizza

Matzo pizza is a classic dish during Passover, but this Roasted Red Pepper and Arugula Matzo Pizza takes it to a whole new level. With the mixture of the roasted red pepper and arugula  flavors and a hint of heat from chili pepper flakes, one just won’t be enough.


Another surprising recipe is this updated Korech sandwich, Balsamic Mushroom Matzo Panini With Mango Jam. Who knew you could have a panini-style sandwich on Passover, and one this delicious at that!
passover mushroom pot pie

Mushroom Pot Pie with Matzo Crust is a Passover dairy version of the pot pie we eat all year round. The matzo makes the perfect crust and wild mushrooms give an exciting taste to this must have dish!

Matzo Farfel

Last but certainly not least, you can’t have a list of matzo recipes without a flawless matzo farfel recipe. Matzo Farfel with Feta and Basil is delicious and fresh way to eat your matzo and the feta and basil are a perfect combination.

Passover is really almost here!  After weeks of whistle blowing and whispering to friends about their pesach plans, it is officially the time when I am ready to stop talking about planning and actually start planning.  Passover is one holiday that is definitely not know for dessert, at least not in a positive way.  Usually when a recipe calls for both potato starch and chocolate, some might be a bit wary.  There are actually many options for kosher for Passover desserts, both gebrokts and not.  Below are 20 Passover dessert recipes to satisfy that sweet tooth throughout the whole holiday.


Chocolate lovers have no fear, I’ve got you covered! Enjoy kid-friendly favorites such as Chocolate Salami, Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Haystacks and Chocolate Covered Matzo BarkChocolate chip cookie layer cake for pesach

 Move on to sophisticated Passover cakes such as Mixed Nut Chocolate TortePassover Cookie Layer CakeGiant Chocolate Chip Cookie Torte and Four “C” Tart with Gluten-free Crust.


Passover Coconut Chocolate Chip Macaroons

For individual portions, there are plenty of pesach cookie options.  First the Salted Chocolate Chip Macaroons or choose the Almond Lace Cookies if you don’t like coconut. 

Chocolate agave Shots

Then consider Bittersweet Chocolate Agave Shots  for elegant and easy treats.  There’s also the seder-worthy Pesach FingersPistachio Merginues and Raspberry Truffles.   Make a platter of all your favorites!


Frozen Lemon Meringue Pie

Sometimes all you want is something fruity, and even frozen, for that quick hit of sweet at the end of a heavy yom tov meal.  Formal desserts include Orange Poached Ginger Pears, Pavlova with Grilled Pineapple, Frozen Lemon Meringue Pie.

Watermelon Banan Split

Rachtza – Prep Your Greens

Rachtza, Washing and Prepping Your Greens for the Seder

Getting ready for Passover is hectic and overwhelming which is why it is so important to prepare ahead of time as much as possible! One thing that I always like to do before the Passover Seder is wash and store my greens so they are ready for serving. Something I know many people struggle with is storing greens after they have been washed without letting them wilt. It is so frustrating going back into the fridge only to find that the fresh herbs that you bought have gone bad.

Rachtza - Prep Your Greens

Here is a plan to keep you ready for the seder and keep your herbs nice and fresh!

1. Clean your greens by soaking them in a bowl with vegetable soap (or however you feel comfortable cleaning your greens).

2. With a lettuce spinner spin your greens until dry. Once dry, lay out a towel or paper towel and roll up your greens, then place it in a ziploc bag.

Rachtza - Prep Your Greens

3. Store In your refrigerator until you are ready to use your greens!

This simple method should keep your leafy greens as fresh as possible after being washed so that you can be prepared before the holiday begins!

Here are some salad recipe to try out your new prepping skill:

Salad of Bitter Greens
Bella Topped Salad with Balsamic Reduction
Maple Chard Salad
