An edible Passover craft idea. How’s that for easy clean-up?

It’s just a few days until Passover, and this awesomely clever craft idea offers one fun way to get the kids excited for the holiday. Besides promising them matzoh sandwiches in their lunch for a week. We love this DIY Passover Matzoh House found at Epicurious. An inventive take on the non-denominational and universally beloved gingerbread house, it’s not all that hard to make. And, it’s as Kosher for Passover as you want to be. You pretty much just need five sheets of matzoh (I’d say more because we tend to break ours in the process), peanut butter if that’s cool by your...

5 amazing recipes that use hard boiled eggs so that you’re not eating egg salad for a week

As a symbol of rebirth and new beginnings, the egg plays an important role in both Easter and Passover celebrations. This means that no matter which spring holiday you’re celebrating this week, you’re likely to be eating lots of eggs. You might even have a bunch left over—or unloaded on you by your hosts—which will have you eating eggs well beyond your holiday meal. If that’s the case, fear not: we’ve got you covered, and I’m not talking egg salad sandwiches 15 ways. Instead, these five truly awesome recipes that use hard boiled eggs will help you finish your...

The most fun printable Haggadah for kids we’ve ever seen

While mostly what kids look forward to in a Passover Seder is finding the matzoh, reading the four questions and stuffing their faces with as many macaroons or chocolate-covered Matzoh as possible, a few years back we discovered a clever Passover Haggadah for kids that I think gives them one more reason to look forward to the holiday. And now, what’s better, it’s been turned into a printable Haggadah so it’s even easier to get your hands on it. Equal parts conversation starter and interactive activity book in the style of Taro Gomi, My Haggadah: Made it Myself by Francine Hermelin Levite is a remarkably...

5 knockout Passover dessert recipes that you’ll totally crave again before next year’s seder.

It used to be that Passover desserts were only good for, well, Passover. No leavening and no flour meant no fun. And it’s even trickier if you keep kosher. Times have changed, though, and while I’m not sure why seder sweets look so much better these days (maybe they always did at other seders?), I’m glad that they do. These 5 Passover dessert recipes are the perfect way to end your Passover meal and spectacular enough to serve any other time you’re celebrating with friends or just feel like a delicious treat.

6 fantastic charoset recipes for your Passover seder

Charoset, a deliciously sweet spread made of fruit and nuts served at Passover seder, is one of the most popular—and meaningful—foods of the holiday. More than that, charoset is as wonderful on any table as it is at the seder, stirred into yogurt, swirled into oatmeal, or even spooned over ice cream, as you would a fruity chutney. Check out these 6 charoset recipes and you’ll understand exactly what I mean, even if you don’t celebrate Passover. The Apple Cinnamon Charoset with Candied Walnuts (above) from Shiksa in the Kitchen is one of my new favorites. It must have something to...

Not just chocolate covered matzah…chocolate covered buttercrunch matzah. Best Passover food ever?

In years past, we’ve strongly suggested that you bring chocolate covered matzah as a gift to your seder hosts. Why is this Passover different from all other Passovers? Because this time, I say you keep this Chocolate Buttercrunch Matzah from Undercover Chocolate all for yourself. Selfish? It’s the matzah talking! Just look at this genius Passover treat we spotted at Mouth, all layered with buttery toffee, dark chocolate, and roasted pecans. Can you blame me for wanting it all to myself? I suppose you could buy two boxes, one for you and another for your host. That’s definitely the more generous...

A Passover gift to keep kids from bogarting the matzoh

Passover is creeping up on us before we know it (quick! Buy matzoh before it’s all gone from the supermarket!) and while it’s not really the giftiest of holidays, I’m loving this sweet handmade toy set that can get little ones through a seder with minimal fussing.   The Passover peg dolls are lovely little handmade wooden dolls that represent Moses, Pharoah, and those ever-lovin’ 10 plagues in an appropriately un-gruesome way to help bring the story to life. There are also 3 random “Israelites” (dying to turn one into Leo G Carrol as Dathan), plus a clever tent...
