Basic French Macarons

Happy Passover! (And Earth Day!) My favorite dessert to make for Passover is French Macarons. They are the delicate cookies with a crunchy exterior and weightless interior. They have a marshmallow-like, chewy texture in your mouth and are filled with everything from cream cheese to chocolate ganache. It has become a favorite in my house after I began making them a few Passovers ago. I also make sure to drop some off to my friend Ben's mom, who loves them! If thereâ...

Berry Pavlova

Why does my birthday have to fall out on Passover?!? Don't get me wrong. I love having a birthday in April. There is almost always good weather on my birthday. But the big downside of it is that every few years my birthday falls out on Passover. I love Passover. It might possibly be my favorite holiday. But that means that I can't have a cake or go out for dinner for my birthday. I happen to not be the biggest fan of cake. But it still is annoying. But as everything in life, I ...

Breakfast Potato Hash

If you are the type of person that eats a bowl of cereal every morning, like me, then you how disappointing the cereals are on Passover. So this year my goal is to make great breakfasts, every morning of the holiday. One dish I am planning on making is this super easy Breakfast Potato Hash. It's full of potatoes, peppers, and onions. Yum! It is fully Kosher for Passover but is also great for all year round!

You can fry the fish, bake it, sear it, grill it. I especially love this taco ...

Salsa Metsuyan

Teaneck needed a great kosher Mexican joint and we finally have one! When I heard that a Kosher Mexican joint was opening in Teaneck, I was super excited. I love Mexican food and my only way of eating it was to make it. Now don't get me wrong! I love making Mexican food at home, but its fun to try new dishes at a restaurant.  So shortly after it opened we went to give it a try. When we walked in the smell and ambiance of the restaurant alone ...

Jalapeño Cheese Crusted Soft Pretzel

My favorite after school snack is a hot, soft pretzel. It is my favorite way to start my evening. I usually just heat up the frozen ones in the toaster. But occasionally, I like to make some pretzels from scratch. They taste much better when you make them yourself! They are also super fun to make.  My favorite way to top off my pretzels is with some Sincerely, Brigitte Jalapeno Cilantro Cheese grated on top.  It really elevates your normal soft pretzel to a fun ...

A super yummy, gluten free Hamantaschen recipe! In my house, making Hamantaschen is an activity that includes the whole family. It is one my brother's favorite time to be in the kitchen! Every Purim we make Regular Hamantaschen and Gluten Free Hamantaschen for my mom. (By the way, my mom isn't gluten free by choice. I know it's trendy now to be gluten free. But I can assure you my mom definitely doesn't think so!) You can fill these with whatever you like. That's ...

For the past month I have been trying to come up with a new Hamantaschen recipe that no one has done yet. Easier said than done! The kosher bloggers community has come up with every possible Hamantaschen recipe you could possibly think of.
