Peanut Butter Cake with Peanut Butter Drizzle

No one will ever suspect how healthy this cake is.  It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and made with all wholesome, healthy ingredients.  And, guess what?

It’s Kosher for Passover!

I know most people are probably done focusing on the dietary restrictions accompany the Passover holiday but, this year, BOTH of my kids want to try to go without eating any foods that contain flour the entire eight days.  That’s nearly impossible as their diet’s main ingredient is FLOUR!

Last week I reached out to Lauren Kelly, a local nutritionist I’ve been following online for years.  Luckily, she’s got a host of amazing desserts that can help us survive this holiday (and the rest of the year too).

Lauren added chocolate chips to top the cake. This is a perfect example of a desert that taste delicious without all the extra junk.

Passover: Brownies

Ahem.  Take one look at these brownies and you tell me….do they look kosher for Passover to you?

How can you tell they don’t contain any flour or baking powder?

Well, you can’t tell…

Absolutely NOTHING in these brownies is sacrificed.  Not looks.  Not even taste.

That’s right my friends.  Another simple, easy, Passover dessert that plays nice with your taste buds. [Read more…]

Haroseth with Pears, Pecans and Figs

Haroseth is a chopped nut and fruit mixture served during the Passover Seder.  It’s usually eaten between two pieces of matzoh, to represent the mortar used by Jews in building palaces and pyramids of Egypt during their slavery.

I simply cannot figure out why I eat this amazingly flavorful fruit dish only two days out of the entire year.  It should NOT only be designated for this holiday.  Like many other dishes I’ve tackled, once in the kitchen and confronted with the ingredients and the directions, I couldn’t believe how easy it is to make.  Seriously, all that’s required is slicing and dicing and mixing of fruits and nuts and you’re done.

Passover: Red Snapper Fillets

If you’re starting to focus on your menu for a Passover Seder, you can take a diversion from your traditional main dishes.  Aside from the ever-so-popular chicken dish, Brisket or Steak, have you ever considered serving fish with your matzoh kugel?

This recipe for Red Snapper Fillets (from Kosher by Gloria) is as refreshing as it is tasty.  And, with the crunch and sweetness of the plantains, you’ll be sure to win over your guests.  Don’t be fooled, this dish is terrific year-round too except, serving it on Passover might impress those expecting the off-the-shelf Friday night dinner entrees.

Also, the fact that the recipes doubles, triples, and quadruples easily makes it ideal for your growing (seder) table.

Enjoy — and remember you can substitute the Red Snapper with other white flaky fish too (Halibut, Grouper, etc)
