Fresh Quinoa Salad

Passover finished yesterday which means I can go back to my everyday foods. Unfortunately, my fridge is pretty empty so I don’t have much fresh produce right now. Until we can get to a grocery store, probably on the weekend, I will be using mostly pantry items for my cooking – we have beans, lentils,…

Refrigerator Nut Cookies

Every once in a while, I like to try new recipes to make on Passover. These cookies were the new recipe this year. The recipe itself is pretty old – it’s from a cookbook called Second Helpings Please, which is a well known Jewish cookbook written by a well known Canadian, Norene Gilletz. My mom…

Passover Apple Cake

Happy monday. I hope everyone is hanging in there. It’s about half way through passover and I’m feeling pretty good about it. I’ve eaten many of the forgotten cookies that I posted on friday (link here) and they have been the perfect sweet treat. For a little change though, I decided to make a cake….

Forgotten Cookies

I originally posted this back in 2017 but I have updated it with the complete recipe ๐Ÿ™‚ *** Honestly, these cookies are magic. Well first of all, I guess they aren’t even really cookies, they’re meringues. Either way, they are my favourite treat to make during passover even though there are no special passover ingredients…

Tri-Layer Kugel

I know it’s been a few days since my last post, sorry about that. Passover cooking is just all the same old recipes – don’t get me wrong, it’s tasty food – and I wasn’t feeling motivated to post about it. But if you would like to see more traditional jewish cuisine, let me know…..

Passover Sweets: Jam Buttons

I hope you saw my last post about kugels, but if not, make sure you check it out after you finish reading through this one ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s the link Passover baking is a little different than regular baking because you can’t use wheat flour or leavening agents. Because of that, most dessert recipes call for…

Passover Side Dishes: Kugels

‘Tis the season of matzah aka passover. It’s always interesting when passover and Easter fall on the same day/weekend – grocery stores are just extra packed which makes for a fun time shopping. I managed to get everything done though and the past 2 days have been full of cooking. The oven has been on…

Coconut Macaroons

No these are not fancy french macarons, these are delicious classic coconut macaroons. I was tired of just being sick and I got back in the kitchen, like I mentioned in my last post. If you like coconut, you will love macaroons. They are a classic passoverย treat but homemade is waaaaayyย better than macaroons that come…

Cauliflower Pizza Bites

Since it’s passover this week, I’ve been eating a whole lot of matzo. So today for lunch I tried to switch things up a bit. Instead of putting tomato sauce and cheese on matzo and making like a pizza, I put those things on little cauliflower ‘steaks’. I know you’ve probably seen recipes for cauliflower…

Coconut Macaroons

I just made one of the easiest desserts ever. This is actually my second time making them in the past week because they are so good! These macaroons are only 5 ingredients (coconut, sugar, eggs, ground almonds, salt) and they’re pretty hard to mess up. Literally mix everything in a bowl and then make little…
