Don’t Pass Over These Recipes — the 2012 Edition
Posted by Miriyummy
Oh no, it’s that time of year again! My 2011 edition proved to be helpful to many of you, so break out the bleach and hide those breadcrumbs, Passover is coming and it’s unstoppable! Here are some helpful ways to get through the holiday when you once again can reunited with your panko and chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream:
Before the holiday even starts and you have your first glass of wine and first dollop of charoset, you need some energy to prepare! Use up your supply of flour and oatmeal and make some Vicki Bikkies to get you through your marathon of cleaning and Hagaddah hunting.
My own go-to blogger for organization and everything you wanted to know about everything, Cooking Manager, basically has the omnibus posting when it comes to this holiday: Passover Recipes and Cooking Techniques (2012). Be prepared to be impressed (I certainly was!).
Baroness Tapuzina recently lost her father, and we all wish her comfort in her memories. But a link on her most recent post takes us back to Shiva, Matza Balls, and the Morpurgo Family, where you can find a link to the Baroness’ recipe for chicken soup, comfort in a bowl if ever one was needed.
Hopefully you won’t just be trapped at home this year and will have a chance to enjoy the outdoors. If you do, try some Fish on the Beach.
Sarah Melamed, the brains behind the beauty of Food Bridge, has a recipe for a sandwich that is decidedly not kosher for Passover, but since April is fresh garlic season in Israel, and since the sandwich filling would go so beautifully on some whole-wheat matza, you really should check out her post on her dried tomato, feta cheese, basil and garlic confit sandwich.
Mimi of Israeli Kitchen had a senior moment which may just become our lunch for the first day of Pesach this year. Have a look at her recipe for Chicken Sofrito, it may just become part of your holiday repertoire as well.
Yes, I know, we eat a ton of eggs on Passover, but who said they had to be boring? Try a pan of Shakshuka this year.
Ima 2 Seven, who will soon be making aliya (yay!) and will find out that keep kosher for Pesach in Israel just might be a bit more insanity-inducing than being KFP in the States, posted her recipe for Passover Granola. I wish her all the luck in the world finding matza farfel in this country, and slivered almonds that are kitniyot-free, and …
One of my favorite ways to end the Seder meal: Baby Pavlovas with Chocolate Creme Patissiere. To make this KFP I use potato flour and real milk and cream.
Katherine Martinelli just came out with her first cookbook on a very not-kosher-for-Passover item, puff pastry. It’s worth getting it for the rest of the year, but for Pesach you really should check out her evilly delicious recipe for Pistachio, Cherry, and Dark Chocolate Bark. This should make anyone suffering from yumminess deprivation happy!
Over at Culinart Kosher it’s been Pesach time since like… forever, at at least since March 19th. Give Marc Gottlieb and his blog a visit, you won’t be sorry. While you’re there, don’t forget to answer his poll on what is your favorite item on the seder plate (mine is the chazeret, I love the hot flavor of it).
I can pretty much recipe by heart what we eat every year for Pesach: eggs, potatoes, matza, potatoes, Tirat Zvi hot dogs, potatoes, and more potatoes. But over at Cook Kosher you can get a whole bunch of ideas for a No Potato Passover and win a cookbook while you’re at it. Sign me up now!
Last year I posted Ju-Boy’s recipe for Passover Pizza, and it’s too good not share again.
Margo Sugarman, the latest addition to my foodie blog addiction, writes The Kosher Blogger. She’s been posting like a Passover fury lately, making sure I get enough ideas in my head (and probably calories on my hips) to last me for several years worth of Pesach.
I make Faye Levy’s Almond Macaroons all year round, but in our family they call them Pesach Cookies. Don’t overbake these babies, you want them chewy!
And if this isn’t enough to get you ready for Passover, just Google it…
