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.

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.

In my house, we eat 80% vegetarian. I serve lots of vegetables, beans and lentils and of course, plenty of cheese. On Passover, our two seder meals tend to be very meat heavy, and of course, you have to finish the leftovers!  By the time Chol Hamoed comes around, I am more than ready to go back to fish and vegetable dishes and start enjoying some fabulous dairy desserts!

Chocolate Coeur a la Crème is one of those simple and delectable recipes I saw Emeril make on his show way back when, and it just stuck with me. That often happens to me (with food). You know, I see it once (I don’t even have to taste it) and I can’t get it out of my mind until I make it mine. Finally the day has come and I am thrilled to share this delicious, perfectly balanced, light, yet indulgent dessert in all its glory with you!

Orange Ginger Charoset Posted 03/23/2015 by Aviva Kanoff
Charoset is one of more popular and tasty symbolic foods on the Passover Seder Plate. It is a sweet, dark-colored paste made of fruits and nuts meant to mask some of the bitterness of the horseradish. The word "charoset" comes from the Hebrew word cheres, meaning clay. It’s color and texture are meant to recall mortar which the Israelites used when they were enslaved in Egypt. Like pretty much everything in Judaism, there are lots of different traditions depending on what part of the world one is from. Traditionally, the recipe calls for apples, nuts and wine. I personally like to stay true to traditions while simultaneously playing with new ingredients to keep things fresh and fun. The following recipe for charoset does just that! The recipe calls for apples, nuts and wine, keeping with tradition, but also incorporates, orange, ginger and mint to keep things new and exciting! Have fun and experiment this year! Wishing you all a Chag Kasher V’Sameach!

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?

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.
