The seders and what I cooked

posted by Homeshuling

I am not a creative or innovative cook, but I am a very competent cook. Essentially, this means that I know how to pick a good recipe, I know how to follow a recipe, and I can pick which recipes go well together. All of these rudimentary skills worked their simple magic this past week, leading to some exceptionally delicious food for our second seder. Here’s what we had and how to make it yourself. All you have to do is follow the recipe. Trust me.

1. Tea Soaked Eggs

2. Chicken Soup with Loads of Vegetables (Joan Nathan) – zucchini omitted

3. Fluffy Matzah Balls (also Joan Nathan)

4. Italian Jewish Style Brisket quite simply the best brisket I have ever tasted

5. Parsnip Fries (with local spring-dug parsnips – as sweet as candy)

6. Levana’s Brownies prepared with extra virgin coconut oil and no vanilla

What did you eat? Any recipes you care to recommend?

ps, Zoe totally rocked on the Mah Nisthana. She must have an awesome kindergarten teacher. Here’s a picture of her practicing in school:

This year I tried Joan Nathan’s “Egyptian Haroset” (from her Jewish Holiday Cookbook), but added: 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. allspice, 1/4 tsp. ginger, and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg while it was simmering on the stove. It turned out really well, and has been good: in yogurt, on matzo with cream cheese, and as a filling for Passover blintzes.

I’m definitely going to try those parsnip fries, and that brisket recipe sounds good, too. Thanks for sharing!

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
