There are so many matzo brei recipes out there that choosing one can be overwhelming. Whether you make a basic traditional recipe, such as the one found here, or something more extravagant, with matzo brei you can rarely go wrong. My favorite is Jamie’s new Banana and Peach Matzo Brie Bake (see the video and recipe link below), but with any version you make you have to be sure not to over-soak the matzo or else your matzo brei will come out soggy. Don’t hesitate to try one or all of the recipes below as they are each different and have a unique take on matzo brei. EnJOY!

Whether you’ve had the pleasure of experiencing a Passover hotel dairy lunch buffet or just heard about what it’s like in (great!) detail, you know that those chefs put out a spread like nobody’s business. I have been to quite a few in my day whether for work or as a guest and can tell you the recipes are so impressive, so creative and so delicious that everyone walks around exclaiming (to themselves, to each other or to anyone within earshot) “I can’t believe this is Passover food!”

Hallel/Nirtza – Next Year In Jerusalem

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.

Barech – The Seder Can Set You Free

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?

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.


 

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.

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.

What To Feed The Kids Before The Seder

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.

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!!
