Cookbooks for Passover

By at 1:08 pm

This year I’m hosting my very first Passover seder. Oh, and did I mention that I have a 2.5-year-old and I’m 8 months pregnant? And my husband is traveling a few days a week every week between now and Passover?

So yes, I’m a bit nervous. I’ve been working on a menu, and though my family and my husband’s family all have our standard favorites, I kind of want to jazz it up a little bit this year. So I’ve started looking at cookbooks–that’s right, real cookbooks. And some websites too, of course, because yes, I work for Kveller and love the internet. I wanted to share with you some of my favorites–and am hoping you’ll tell me your favorites too!

1. The No-Potato Passover, by Aviva Kanoff

No Potato Passover

Because the two things I tend to live on during Passover (besides the ubiquitous matzah, of course) are potatoes and eggs. And I’m really psyched to get beyond that this year! The full-color pages are filled with gorgeous recipes that I think I could actually make. Nice.

2. Passover by Design, by Susie Fishbein

Passover By Design

This one’s written by the same woman who wrote Kosher by Design, and has a nice blend of the quick and easy recipe and the more-work but great payoff recipe. Oh, and did I mention that many of the recipes are gluten-free?

3. The New York Times Passover Cookbook, edited by Linda Amster

New York Times Passover Cookbook

So I’m partial to this one because my husband’s mother got her brisket recipe from the New York Times. But it’s filled with great chefs who write excellent Passover recipes. And yes, it’s been out for a decade, but once a classic, always a classic!

If you’re looking for websites to start your Passover planning, I’ve spent a little time searching on Epicurious, as well as MyJewishLearning.com (be sure to check out The Nosher, their newest food blog), CookKosher, and Joy of Kosher.

So now that I’ve shared some of my favorites, what are yours? What cookbooks am I missing, what websites didn’t I share? And be sure to check out Passover recipes board on Pinterest.

Cookbook Contest Winner!

By at 4:02 pm

Shana tova, y’all! A couple of weeks ago, we announced a contest for the new year: give us your best resolution, and we’ll send you a cookbook.

Like so many of our contests, it’s hard to choose just one winner. Because really, a resolution is what’s best for you, and who are we to choose the best? But we’d made a promise, and so we’ve done the hard work and chosen a winner.

Congratulations to Jennifer Steinberg of Wilmington, Delaware! We love her resolution and its honesty–and its unintentional pun:

Jennifer’s resolution: My resolution this year is to have more, *ahem*, intimate time with my husband. With two kids and work and community and synagogue stuff, we just got really busy this year and I think it’s time for us to make a point of reconnecting more frequently.

Jennifer, keep your eyes peeled for a cookbook coming your way!

And even though we couldn’t send you all a cookbook, Simply Southern With a Dash of Kosher Soul wanted to share a recipe with you–for their Splendid Apple Pie. It uses a sugar substitute, so if your resolution was to get healthy, this is a great first step. Enjoy!

Share Your Resolution for a Free Cookbook!

By at 1:57 pm

Rosh Hashanah is very soon (like, next week!) and besides eating apples and honey, one great way to celebrate the Jewish New Year is to take a cue from that other New Year’s celebration and make resolutions. We’re curious to know what your resolutions are, and since everybody loves prizes, we decided to hold a contest!

Leave your resolution in the comments section below. One lucky winner will receive a copy of the brand new cookbook Simply Southern With a Dash of Kosher Soul. Kosher fried chicken? Yes, please. We’ll be accepting entries up until sundown on Wednesday, September 28 (the official start of Rosh Hashanah.)

The winner should prepare to feel extra motivated (and possibly guilted into) keeping his or her resolution for at least a month, so start thinking about what your resolution will be, and enter today! (And if you just can’t wait to get your hands on Simply Southern, their website is offering free shipping through 9/23 for the High Holidays. Oh, and they can only ship to U.S. addresses, so keep that in mind!)
