So if you’re making your first Seder, I can do more than sympathize. I remember what my first Pesach was like and I can give you solid help. I would have given anything, even Aunt Zahava’s noodles, for a list like this. It goes in order of Seder use.

 

The Last Suppers

Hi Jamie, I am a harried mom of 3 and find cooking healthy meals in the last few days before Pesach a real challenge. It’s no big deal to eat out once or twice – but the challenge is feeding everyone well while bringing minimal chometz into the house. What kind of suppers do you advise? Thanks, Jenny in Boston

The Benefits of Fiber in Quinoa

As a Dietitian, I am constantly extolling the benefits of fiber. Fiber-rich foods not only fill us up, but also are essential to a healthy diet. Fiber can lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers. Daily recommended intake of fiber for adults is 25 grams for woman and 35 grams for men. Most importantly, especially during Passover, it can prevent or relieve constipation. One of the side effects of the dreaded “Matzo diet” is irregularity. It is a passing joke during the holidays, but can really put a damper on enjoying the holiday in comfort.

If you’re like many people, the cost of Pesach can be pretty overwhelming. Between the pounds brisket, the dozens (and dozens) of eggs, and the liters of wine – not to mention all those kosher for Passover specialty items – a week of Pesach can cost two to three times an entire month’s worth of groceries.

There may be no meal as important, or as stressful, as a Passover Seder. The planning, cleaning, preparation, buying kosher for Passover – and let’s not forget we still have to make the food taste good! In spite of these restrictions, it is possible to create a delicious and memorable Passover meal. Maybe the best parts of that meal (and a leading cause of Seder Stress) are the Seder Side Dishes.

Plan for Pesach

 
Seder Plate

April 12th 2011By Alison and Jeff Nathan

As we celebrate Passover, we are immersed in many time-honored customs. Special holiday traditions are reserved just for this time of year, such as the seder plate, the four glasses of wine, the many different foods, and the reading from the hagaddah. The four questions echo the beautiful sound of Pesach around the table while bringing family, friends and often strangers to a spiritually closer place.

 

Pesach Recipes that Were Winners

I usually tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, and this time I did not disappoint. I stayed true to my promise and 99% of what I made for the 8-day kitchen yuntif known as Passover were not actually Pesach recipes. Of course they were K for P, but they didn't require any major Passoverish ingredient tweaks. These recipes were developed with Pesach in mind and they were featured in the Pesach issue of my new magazine, Joy of Kosher with Jamie Geller.

 

Passover Rescue Plan

I was really starting to fret as I was planning my menus a mere 4 weeks before the Seders, when I realized that I have a secret weapon for the holiday. My favorite ingredient Extra Virgin Olive Oil is kosher for Passover. I may have to give up my pastas, rices and spices, but I still have my extra virgin olive oil.
