Pass-Me-More Passover Granola

Recipe by Sherry Schweitzer

Pass-Me-More Passover Granola

Reflecting on the kind of nibbles we ate on a regular basis and hoping for a post-Passover kitchen without another leftover box of matzah, I discovered that I could make a really good granola snack from crumbled matzah or farfel (truthfully, pieces of matzah resembling dog kibble).

Shaya Haroset

Recipe by Alon Shaya

Shaya <em>Haroset</em>

My mom would make the best Sephardic-style haroset. This is based off of hers with an Italian twist. I love what the flavor of the moscato wine and hazelnuts add to the dates and figs. I also like to make this year round and eat it with everything. (Tip: After Passover, try it with grilled

Recipe by Susan Barocas

<em>Bimuelos de Kalavasa</em> (Sephardic Pumpkin Patties)

Pumpkin is a favorite ingredient in Sephardic cooking, found in cakes, soups, stews, puddings, jams and pancakes. Sephardic Jews include the fall fruit in dishes for Rosh Hashanah and Sukkot. At Chanukah, Syrian Jews are fond of savory pumpkin patties (kibbet yatkeen) while Sephardim from Turkey and Greece make deep-fried pumpkin fritters or sweet pancakes,

Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Recipe by Zoe Nathan and Josh Loeb

Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Note from Sheilah Kaufman: When I think of Chanukah, I always think of chocolate gelt. Here’s a more adult-like (and breakfast-friendly) way to eat gelt!  These chocolate chunk muffins are hands down my husband’s favorite muffin I make. He loves them so much that for his birthday last year I made mini chocolate chunk muffins
