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!!
