Mar 282012


In Israel, spring has sprung. In the mornings you see a great number of women shlepping wheeled shopping carts on  buses, intent on filling them up at the shuk. I can relate to them. Here’s my shopping cart, rather worse for wear but full of good things: lavender and mint in pots and lotsa garlic. Well, yes, garlic…what else would I go to shuk for, twice in one week?  Fresh green garlic has arrived, and Mimi is one happy blogger. So far I’ve only made 1 batch of garlic confit (recipe here), but there’ll be more.

It’s not too soon to plan Passover menus. Here’s an updated roundup of recipes that suit the holiday. Enjoy!

  1. Don’t forget about your almond lemon macaroons! Here in our house, it wouldn’t be Pesach without those chocolate covered treats! :-)

  2. How right you are, Mrs. S. I’m going to put those macaroons on the Pesach roundup right now. And a chag kasher v’sameach to you and your family!

  3. Do you make all of these dishes during Pesach? This year we are going out of town for the holiday, so I won’t be doing any cooking which feels very strange indeed.

  4. A., I don’t cook every dish in the roundup, and I cook others I haven’t posted about.

  5. I whipped up a batch of the almond lemon macaroons for everyone to eat after their erev Pesach nap and they went down very well, as did the garlic turkey bites, which I made fresh for the second seder. They were delicious and made a nice change from chicken. Thanks for great ideas and enjoy the rest of yomtov!

  6. Mrs. Belogski, I’m always glad to read your gracious comments. Moadim le simcha, and Shabbat shalom!

  7. Help! Needs recipe for Passover potato bread. I was in Israel last year for Pesach and was served a loaf of bread in a kosher restaurant. I was told it was potato bread. Does anyone have the recipe?
    Thank you.
    Have a happy and kosher Pesach.

  8. Irving, I don’t have a recipe for this. I’d Google it. Chag sameach!
