I’ve been feeling all warm and fuzzy as we wind our way towards Passover this year.
It was only a year ago that I met three like-minded bloggers and we had the crazy idea of pooling our very different viewpoints and co-authoring a Passover cookbook together. We bonded over countless hours of recipe brainstorming, strategizing, and late night laughter, ditzy from too many hours of Google Chat.
In just four intensely focused months, we created the e-book, 4 Bloggers Dish: Passover, Modern Twists on Traditional Flavors.
The beauty of it is, that we are now true friends, despite the fact that we have never all been in the same room. If any of us were to need something, food related or not, I believe we would be right there for each other. Talk about the beauty of technology! Continue reading
We’ve invited Yosef Silver of Kosherwine.com to share some great Passover wine finds and pairings with just enough time to order before the holiday begins on April 3.
He’s made it easy by breaking it down into his favorite pairings with meat, vegetarian and fish meals. And he’s attached a discount code just for our readers!

I love it when my readers tell me what they need! So when M. phoned to ask where oh where should she buy her Passover desserts, we took the challenge and got to work looking for the best of the best.

The New Passover Menu by Paula Shoyer enticed me from the first moment I flipped through it’s fifty plus recipes. And for fans of Shoyer’s previous baking cookbooks, you’ll be thrilled to find 16 mostly gluten-free, kosher for Passover desserts. Continue reading
I’m guessing it’s time for fruit and something much lighter than the fare you’ve been eating at your Seders.
I’m keeping it fresh and simple with this Orange and Fennel Salad from our Passover eBook, 4 Bloggers Dish: Passover. This vegan, pareve, gluten-free salad is so easy to make and so refreshing, you’ll want to make it all year round. Continue reading
In collaborating on my recent eBook, 4 Bloggers Dish: Passover, Modern Twists on Traditional Flavors, I thought a lot about how my tastes have shifted over the years and how in some ways, they haven’t at all.
During Passover, a lot of home-cooks turn back to traditional foods that may be outside of the scope of what they normally eat. This naturally brought me to contemplating gefilte fish. And while I LOVE my gefilte fish, I’m totally DIS-interested in making it. The stink of simmering fish broth in my home? No thanks. Continue reading

This Passover, you can have your granola and eat it too!
Gluten free, all natural, kosher granola, that is. We are thrilled that Foodman’s has expanded their kosher Matzolah line to include a tasty Cranberry-Orange Gluten Free variety just in time for what may be the most challenging Jewish holidays food-wise. This KOF-K certified and dairy free (pareve) granola couldn’t have come at a better time. Continue reading

The vibe at the Lime restaurant in Norwalk, CT is a throwback to the late 70′s. Square sheets of glass protect faded, striped umber and orange tablecloths and customers’ business cards are wedged between cloth and glass. A smattering of haphazardly framed photos of early 1980′s T.V. icons hang next to kitchen tools and framed notices of events from another era.

As we wind our way through Passover week, it’s great fun to experiment with ingredients that fit the bill as perfectly as quinoa does. This vegetarian dish brings bright colors and textures together for this elegant side dish or entree. Continue reading
Desperate for something to eat as the Passover Seder progression delays the dinner, we welcome the moment when we are free to pile charoset on matzah.
Ironic, isn’t it, that while charoset represents the mortar used to make bricks when we were slaves in Egypt, it is somehow, the tastiest symbol at the Passover Seder? Continue reading
