In which i cooked for Passover

Seder Plate

Well, I’ve just spent the last two days cooking.  I suppose that I should say that I’ve spent the last few days eating since it’s impossible for me to cook without a ton of eating.  That’s because I don’t really have exact recipes, most of the stuff it to taste.


The reason that I’m cooking, which I really don’t like to do, is that it’s Passover.  For the most part I could take it or leave it but since I have a 4-year-old niece I feel that it’s important to have it.


Unfortunately, only Andie will be there and even she is racing to make it here and will be late. Keely is in California and Daniel, well I’m not sure he’s actually still part of the family.


Back in the day, we really enjoyed Passover although Kevin and the kids misbehaved and I was always mad at them which is a bit ironic actually.  You see, it used to be me that misbehaved but that was before I had to make all the food.  Now I have to spend so long cooking that I get really ticked off if people don’t appreciate all the work I’ve done.


Basically, I hate to cook.  It takes forever.  It makes a mess. It disappears so fast that what’s the point?


Yesterday I made homemade chicken soup and today I made the matzo balls.  This is certainly yummy and actually not too difficult.


I also made Haroses yesterday, which is basically an incredible concoction of apples, nuts, sweet red wine, honey and cinnamon.  How could you go wrong? This is where the tasting comes in though and I’ve had a ton of Haroses just to get it to taste right.


I also made homemade coconut macaroons dipped in chocolate and yes; they’re as good as they sound.  I used to hate macaroons until I got this recipe.  It’s not that it’s difficult, its just time consuming and it’s sticky and gets all over your hands so of course, you need to lick them clean.


I ate so much yesterday just putting all this together.  I did manage to farm out the eggs (hard boiled but who wants to peel that?), the brisket and the vegetables.


Hopefully it’ll all come together and be yummy but I’ll probably be too full to care by dinner.


Ok guys, have a great day and have a Happy Passover and soon to be Easter!

    Happy Passover!
    We were at my sisters house last night for Seder. My brother-in-law (the token Jew in the family) makes a brisket that is so good it will make you weep. And yes, we all inhaled the Haroses.

    If you add 1/2 tsp of baking soda to the water when you cook the eggs, the shell slides right off! You’re Welcome.

    The baking soda trick is gold…I just started using it myself a few months ago.

    HAPPY PESACH!!! Um…need your macaroon recipe. If you send it, I’ll give you my apple challah one. :)

    (See…this is why I’m the worst goy ever…)
