Chocolate Macaroon Cake

This Chocolate Macaroon cake is delicious. Perfect for Passover but I will be making it during the year I am sure. I served it for the first Seder with the Frozen Lemon Meringue Dessert dessert, posted in this blog,   & I think people had a hard time choicing, so they tried some of both! Everyone…

Frozen Lemon Meringue Dessert

This recipe is good all year & can be served during Passover or would be a beautiful dessert for Easter dinner!   The recipe is from Chatelaine magazine 2013. I have made this a couple of times. This year, at my Passover seder,  my guests loved it!

YAPCHIK – Slow Baked Potato Kugel

I had never heard about YAPCHIK in my entire life! Turns out it is a potato kugel with meat baked inside, cooked in a very low oven for 8 hours…cholent style. The recipe is from JOYofKosher. Ever since I first read about this on their site I was eager to try it. I was not…

Mom’s Sweet Matzo Kugel

Well, this recipe is written on an old white recipe card with no directions.. just ingredients. So I guessed! It turned out nicely. The recipe calls for other fruit, not just apples, but I left out the other fruit since my family would not like the prunes & raisins… but I will put them in…

Passover Egg Noodles *** use all year!

A wonderful woman gave me this recipe many years ago. She lives in Vancouver now & I miss seeing her. She is about 90 years old now, was a friend of my moms & I am friends with her daughter. I think of her every time I make these egg noodles. It isn’t really “noodles”…

Baba Ganoush

As with Hummus, there are so many recipes for Baba Ganoush & I pretty much like all of them. Some are made with mayonnaise which I really like but the one that I have been making lately uses tahini.  Very quick & simple, delicious & healthy. If you can not eat tahini, add mayonnaise in its…
