Countdown to Passover Tip #18- Ready, Set, Cook!

Your kitchen is ready for Passover; now is the time to cook ahead for the holiday.

Wow, we're already at tip #18 (l'chaim!). This countdown is going a little too fast, if you ask me. And, if you are like me, you're still facing A LOT of Passover preparations. Thank goodness we have Professional Organizer Rivka Slatkin's great advice to get us through. Yesterday, Rivka suggested that the time had come to make our kitchen's kosher for Passover. Now, we get the fun of cooking up a storm!

Tip #18: Cook whatever meals you plan to store in the freezer.

For the recipe portion, I've picked a great cook-ahead holiday favorite:

Recipe #18: Brisket in Wine Sauce

Nothing compares to the rich, comforting flavors of brisket, plus this brisket really holds up well to reheating. Other freezer faves include Veal Stew with Apricots and Prunes, Potato Kugel Cups and Broccoli Kugel. For tips on freezing check out our article on the best methods for freezing foods.

Check back next week for more tips. We're in the homestretch, now!
