While we were writing Passover Made Easy
and were hard at work developing new recipes to add flavor to your holiday, we also looked to be inspired by you, our fellow CookKosher members. We tested lots and lots of recipes that arose out of your kitchens. Hereâ€™s some of our favorites that didnâ€™t make it into the bookÂÂbut still deserve to be enjoyed!
I made these Almond Cupcakes four times. The first time they were delicious and moist, and they were all eaten up. I had used blanched ground almonds, and wanted to know how theyâ€™d taste if I used the ground almonds (unblanched) that most of us keep in our pantries on Passover. It wasnâ€™t the same. Though they didnâ€™t make it into the book, if you are processing your own blanched almonds to make almond meal, or have found blanched ground almonds in the store, the kiddies will love these. Pipe some meringue on top of the unbaked cupcakes for a swirly frosting stand-in. - Victoria
These are a Pesach classic, thatâ€™s already in everyoneâ€™s Passover repertoire. They are way too common to include in a cookbook (Here
is another version). But if theyâ€™re not on your baking list yet, what are you waiting for? - Leah
I eat matzah every day all year long. I love that bland, sort of comforting taste. Although this wasnâ€™t flavorful or unique enough to nab a spot in the book, we still enjoyed eating it. -Victoria
This is on my Pesach menu. I donâ€™t yet know if itâ€™s good or not. But itâ€™s intriguing to me. Iâ€™ll let you know how it turns out. - Leah
When I told Leah that this sounds good, she told me that everyone was making this dessert 25 years ago! I made it twice, in a Pyrex instead of a jelly roll (so itâ€™s easier). My kids attacked it and finished the whole batch both times. Itâ€™s orange sorbet. What can go wrong? - Victoria
In the â€śBuilding Blocksâ€ť section of Passover Made Easy, youâ€™ll find a how-to on making Passover crepes. One of the things you can do with the crepes is stack them, roll them, and slice them into noodles. I noted there that you can use your all year round noodle kugel recipe to make a kosher for Passover version. Hereâ€™s my adaptation of my all year round Yerushalmi kugel. - Leah
This was a very comforting soup. We made two versions, using both celery (some added before and some added after the blending so it has some crunch) and celery root. Both turned out well. - Victoria
Donâ€™t go yet!
Hereâ€™s a few more you might like. Though we havenâ€™t tried them all, theyâ€™re tried and true recipes from your fellow Cookkosher.com members all over the world. - Leah
