    1. Dear Jamie:
      I live in Mexico and my hobby is cooking. I’ve been subscribed to your site for years and I enjoy your recipes very much, especially those for the holidays. Since I come from Europe, many of the recipes remind me of my childhood, and are similar to those my grandmother used to make. Anyhow, I only want to congratulate you for your decision to live in Israel. Unfortunately I’m too old to move, but I’m quite content here.
      All the best to you and your family for Pesach and G’d Bless you.

    2. With allergies to tree nuts and sulfites,
      Coming up with dessert ideas is challenging. Dried fruit, coconut, wines, and all nuts are not allowed. This part air will be greatly appreciated by my family. Any suggestions for parev desserts
