Oma's Fabulous Matzo Ball Soup

Rating: Unrated
This is a matzo ball soup that my grandmother used to make. It is our family's favorite part of the meal. It serves a lot of people depending on the size of the bowl you use. Make sure to not add too much matzo meal in order to make the matzo ball float to the top of the boiling water.

Crusty garlic bread and a nice light Chianti wine complement this meal very well.

The Rebbetzin Chef's Persian Walnut Cookies

Rating: Unrated
These delicately-spiced, rose-scented cookies are the perfect treat for Passover since they contain no flour. They are nutty and rich, slightly chewy with a crunchy exterior. Pistachios or almonds can be substituted for the walnuts.

Simply Steamed Asparagus

Makes even tough asparagus, tender and tasty! Try using vinaigrette dressing in place of the butter too.

Passover Chocolate Mandelbrot

Passover cake made with matzo cake meal instead of flour.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Rating: Unrated
My grandmother's recipe for roasted chicken. We are German and she used to do it this way all the time. I never have had a chicken this juicy before; this little trick works and makes the people eating it go silent. It's funny. We nibble on the celery after.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Rating: Unrated
This dip is amazing -- so cheesy and fragrant. If you don't like artichokes, don't worry -- you'll never know they're in there! My only question is: Is it okay to just eat it with a spoon right out of the dish?

This garlic asparagus dish is a Northern Italian side dish. My family loves it! Even the kids!
