Using up chametz – more recipes

posted by Homeshuling

For our Purim seudah, I decided serve breakfast foods. I have quite a few random hunks of challah in the freezer, stowed away for french toast, that I wanted to use up, but was too lazy to make french toast for a crowd. Instead, I made this fanstasic French Toast bread pudding from Epicurious. I am so sorry I didn’t take a picture because it was as gorgeous as it was delicious and easy. The challah bits soak overnight in milk, egg and sugar, and you just pop it in the oven the next morning. I replaced most of the nutmeg with cinnamon, and used 1% milk, but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter.
I’m also re-posting a link to my world famous (according to Zoe) noodle kugel.  This is another “dump everything in a pan and bake but everyone will think you spent a long time on it” recipe. And it is fabulous.
And I don’t mean to freak you out, but PASSOVER IS ONLY ONE MONTH AWAY.

The epicurious Creme Brulee French Toast is a favorite at our house! My mother in law raved about it, then went home and looked up the recipe. Calling in a panic, she said, “But it has butter! And cream!” I said, “What do you think makes it taste so good?”

LOL -thanks for the reminder. I need to start pulling things out of the freezer for meals, since we have so much in there now. Hmm, I can be halachically observant AND thrifty AND lazy all at once?? Awesome!

Do you have surveillance on my freezer Amy? This is a great idea. I am getting hungry and I just ate lunch. I also like to make a big pot of Italian minestrone to use up the little bits of beans hangin’ out in my cupboard and to get me in the mood (which I NEVER am) for spring cleaning.

But you are! You are freaking me out! Had to get that out of my system. Thanks for the great ideas – a welcome nudge in the direction of matza.

Teaching the Four Questions to young children
One of the greatest privileges of being a kindergarten teacher in a Jewish day school is having the opportunity to teach children to recite the four questions. Unlike almost anything else I teach them about Jewish ritual, this is "real work." The candles will get blessed, kiddush will be recited, an

Guess what's Kosher for Passover (this will change your life.)
I'm not exaggerating. The bane of my Passover existence has been pareve baking. I cook a lot more meat during the holiday than I do the rest of the year, which means a lot more pareve desserts. Which has, up until now, usually meant margarine made from disgusting ingredients such as cottonseed oi

Why I love the New American Haggadah (and it's not just because I got to have a martini with Nathan Englander.)
I'm not a haggadah junkie. I know many Jews whose shelves are overflowing with numerous versions of the Haggadah - from the traditional Maxwell House to the not-so-traditional Santa Cruz - and whose seders are an amalgam of commentaries, poems, and (alas) responsive readings, from these dog-eared, p

Best Hamentashen Ever, even better. And, a Purim opera.
This time of year, I'm always excited when I look at my google analytics and see that people have landed at my blog by searching for "hamentashen recipe". I love the idea of people all over the world making my great-grandmother's fabulous hamentashen, the same ones my mom made with me and that I mak
