If you don’t know this about me, I celebrate Passover, as I am Jewish. My husband and 4 kids are Catholic. We are what you would call maybe “interfaith” but I like to just call us: Flexible and open-minded. We all like what we do, and appreciate and respect one another’s beliefs. That said, you will note that I celebrate many Jewish holidays right along side the Christian ones. That was how I was raised and also sort of how I am doing it myself. No matter what religion you are I have found 6 great blogging sites that have great recipes, most of which are for Jewish cooking or kosher cooking. During Passover, I like to find recipes that are Kosher, easy to make and family friendly/adaptable to non-Kosher eaters.
Passover recipes are easy to come by, just like any other recipes, but to find tried and true, real “family” recipes I have found a few go-to sites that make my inter-faith life so much easier. I can adapt recipes during Passover to fit the lifestyle of my family, who don’t all necessarily have to eat this way but I like to. Here are six of my favorites to pull ideas from, during Passover or any time of year that you are looking for Jewish recipes or cooking:
Kosher on a Budget
I love this blog. It loads kind of slowly sometimes, but she is rich in recipes here and has menu plans (Ahhhhhmen!) specifically for the Passover week in addition to all the time. I love her Crockpot Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls.
Family Friends Food
This one is all about the food. The Overnight Matza Breakfast Bake looks perfect when you are sick of the same old egg and matza, and craving a little sweet. Since it is a UK blog, some recipes are measured in grams instead of (the U.S.) ounces, cups, etc. I consider this is blogging-find!
The Kosher Baker, AKA Paula Shoyer
Not so much the blog, but the book…I borrowed her New Passover Menu book from my library and can I tell you?… I made Passover Crumb Cake muffins(p.88)…yes, muffins! So good and moist- not crumbly. I am in love. I also made her Chicken Scaloppini with Mushrooms (p.81) and I will be making this make-ahead chicken all year! I love that it is designed to make ahead and reheat. If you need more of these kind of recipes this is for you- and it was so, so good! I highly recommend her recipes!
Never mind my finger here…or the Santa muffin wrappers…I told you we are an “Interfaith” household!
Joy of Kosher
So, this blog makes me feel bad about myself. She is amazing and has tons of awesome recipes for all year round, and also for the Matza-driven masses. Tons of cute Seder ideas for kids and other lovely things here. Worth a peek…or 2 hours!
What Jew Wanna Eat
I just like the name of this blog, so I went here and found tons of great recipes to choose from. A fun tone and superb pictures to lead you where you want to find deliciousness! This Matza Ball Chicken Tortilla Soup has me ready to make this NOW! Great food here.
All about good food, easy food, and lots of different food. She is a young and accomplished home-cook that has a great take on making family friendly kind of meals. I like the simple ingredient and kid-friendly Passover ideas that this blog offers.
Soooo that is it! I hope you take a peek at some of these sites (and one book!) since I have spent more than a little time looking at them, my Passover menu has already improved! Next year I think I will try a menu plan to pull lots of these ideas from. Have a Happy Passover!
