I grew up in a salad house. No matter what meal we were sitting down to eat there were a minimum of four salads. Until today when I go to someone’s house and there is no salad I am very disappointed.

Like every course in a meal salad is vital and ads so much to each meal. Aside from the health benefits of eating vegetables salad is just delicious!

Helen Goldrein, author of the blog Family Friends Food, has recently published a cookbook, Helen’s delicious Pesach, which I believe will revolutionize your Pesach cooking! Helen’s new cookbook features 8-days-worth of breakfasts, meat-free main dishes, side dishes and salads, potato dishes, and cakes & desserts, that are all naturally gluten-free, and are also free from kitniot and gebrokhts. Helen has been cooking, and experimenting with food, for as long as she can remember, but when her daughter was born, she officially became a Jewish Mother, and she has been taking her responsibilities to feed, feed, feed very seriously ever since! Helen explains that being a mum has also refocused her attention on ensuring that the food she makes is as healthy as possible, as well as being delicious and that is exactly what you will find in Helen’s delicious Pesach cookbook.

Here are three recipes from Helen’s delicious Pesach:


 

Urchatz – DIY cleaning Products

While preparing for passover one of the first things that I do is buy cleaning products. I guess in my mind the more cleaning products I have the more prepared I am for the passover cleaning frenzy.

Since I made Aliyah five years ago I discovered something that has changed my outlook on cleaning products forever. The water consistency in Israel is different then the US and tends to stain glass showers. No matter what I did or used I wasn’t able to clean my shower doors properly. Then one day my landlord came over and suggested I use apple cider vinegar to remove the stains. The stains came off immediately and I decided to stop buying overpriced cleaning products and learn more about homemade cleaning products that would save both time and money. Did I forget to mention the added benefit of using chemical free products in your home?

So much of our lives these days are set around our computer or another digital device.  Most of our communication takes place through email, texting and sometimes voice or video calls.  As someone who works from a home office, it is nice to have the chance to get out for a night and it always nice to get to see all the bloggers we work with and email with in person once in a while.  It is especially great when a bunch of foodies get together for a pot luck style dinner featuring Sabra recipes.   With a food demo, a prop swap, Israeli wines and lots of food, we had a great time.  Some of you may have followed along on social media with #ShareSabra and here is the full recap, recipes and all!!

Matzo Farfel with Feta and Basil Posted 03/18/2015 by Jamie Geller
“Chiffonade” is a French term which means “rags.” To make a chiffonade of basil: Stack the leaves and roll them into a tight cigar shape. Slice crosswise into thin strips. Fluff the strips to separate them.

It feels like Passover is just around the corner!  Conversations always seem to lead to discussions of pesach (Passover) preparations, whether it’s cleaning, menu planning, or figuring out how to configure the house for all of the guests.  While I am not one to give cleaning tips, I would like to offer up the plethora of Pesach recipes here at Joy of Kosher.  If you’re looking for articles with a mix of recipes, check out some of mine from last year (I can’t believe how the time has flown!) including A Trio of Passover Picnic Menus15 Salad Recipes for Passover; 15 Healthy Passover Chicken Recipes; 25 Passover Dessert Recipes; and 101 Passover Recipes.  There are plenty of recipes for many of your menu planning needs, and to add to that below are 12 ideas for main dishes to serve after the seder including meat and vegetarian recipes.

 


 

Cooking With Wine

Let’s start with a confession: I can’t drink. Not much, at least. Anything more than half a cup of wine makes me extremely tipsy. For this reason, even if I do like the taste, I’ve always had to stop at the first glass, and never had the chance to fine-tune my sensory abilities and learn to appreciate the more complex bouquets.

My lack of tolerance for alcohol has often made me feel not only deprived, but also a bit insecure. After all, since we share with France the title of largest producer in the world, wine in Italy is a big deal.

Gluten-Free Matzo Balls

Gluten-Free Matzo Balls Posted 03/17/2015 by Gluten-Free Nosh
Matzo balls are a favorite at Passover and any time of the year. But what to do if you are gluten-free and can’t have regular matzo or matzo meal, let alone matzo balls? While some gluten-free matzo ball mixes are available for Passover (my favorite is Lieber’s knaidel mix), they can be hard to find. Inspired by German potato dumplings, this recipe uses potatoes, potato starch and almond meal to make fluffy matzo balls — without the matzo. The result is gluten-free, non-gebrokts knaidlach that are fluffy on the outside, while slightly dense on the inside. Make sure to plan out this recipe in advance, as you’ll need to refrigerate the boiled potatoes ahead of time. A potato ricer works well here to finely shred the cooked potatoes, but you can them well by hand, too. When boiling the matzo balls, do so at a light boil, so vigorous bubbling won’t break up the delicate matzo balls. While you can make the batter ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator, the matzo balls are best cooked close to serving time.

Yes, the rumor is true. I did eat 6 of these all by my lonesome when testing the recipe. Now in the interest of full disclosure I ate 3 for breakfast (was a late breakfast, more like brunch) and 3 for lunch (was a late lunch, more like linner). And yes you may have heard that I also fried up some extra eggplant to snack on in between. And while some people may be embarrassed to admit this I think it just proves how much of a winner this recipe really is. So hang on to your hats folks and watch me fry and roll and bake your new favorite Passover and year-round brunch, lunch, linner or dinner dish.
