"These almond butter tahini cookies are gluten free which makes them perfect for Passover. Chewy, but fragile, I know you will love them. Tasting like they are made with browned butter-but not- I know these cookies with dark chocolate, will be a new hit!"
Passover is a week from Monday and my cooking has begun. Yesterday found me starting 2 pots of chicken soup and experimenting with a new almond butter, tahini cookie. I was pleasantly surprised by these. They taste rich and a lot like a browned butter cookie, but no butter in these except for the almond butter. Totally gluten free and perfect for Passover. I used just a touch of almond flour in them and some dark chocolate chips. I put most in the freezer but not before Manservant devoured 1/2 dozen of them.
I still have a long ways to go and tomorrow I will be regrouting our shower that badly needed it. I took out the grout Thursday-what a mess! I best figure out quickly what will be on our plate next Monday as Zoe and my folks arrive on Saturday. I'll do as much as I can before they get here. To help me focus I decided to put together a round up of what's been on our plates through the years. Even if you don't celebrate Passover I know there will be something here to enjoy!
A few tips to pass on...I have made gefilte fish in the past but highly recommend Ungar's gefilte fish, found in the freezer case. Add some onions, celery and carrots to the water when you boil this loaf. It is a hit! I also make my own horseradish easily in the food processor. Yes. It is a pain to peel and chop and WATCH OUT when you open the lid of the processor! Those fumes will get you! Throw in a bit of white vinegar, some salt and maybe a cooked beet if you need to tone it down. This is great horseradish!
I'm sure I will have some new recipes to add during the week if I get a chance. This matzoh grilled cheese is a favorite of mine and though I know it won't work for Seder be sure to make it during the week. Love this! For snacks during the week this matzoh crunch more than suffices! Hopefully some of the menus below will give you some ideas if you are behind like I am. Spring cleaning got the best of me, as did spring fever. Happy Passover or Easter!
