Barbecue Beef Ribs with Homemade Mole Barbecue Sauce

bbq ribs with mole sauce

There's a secret ingredient in these barbecue beef ribs that makes them the most succulent and tasty ribs you'll ever eat! Allow me to introduce you to my family's favorite holiday dish. Dessert? Nope. It's meat. Ribs, to be precise. No jokes. Not only do I make the best ribs in the world, but my family would probably revolt if I would try not making them for a holiday. Many have you have probably tried my ribs with homemade bourbon barbecue sauce. Smart of you - those are amazing! But bourbon isn't kosher for Passover, so I decided I had to come up with a version that I could make on Pesach. Enter my secret ingredient: cocoa powder. Yes, I am totally serious. With all the Passover … [Read more...]

Passover Mocha Crepe Cake {Gluten Free}

gluten free mocha crepe cake

Mocha Crepe Cake is the most elegant and delicious Passover dessert - you'll never believe it's gluten free! I feel like we need to talk for a couple of minutes about how much I've always hated Passover desserts. Maybe it's the lack of ingredients. Maybe it's the lack of equipment. Maybe it's just the lack of time. Or maybe I really need to step out of my comfort zone more. But what can I say. I prefer my cookies and cakes with flour. If it were up to me, I wouldn't make up new Passover dessert recipes. But I write for a magazine, and when you have a steady recipe column, you don't get to pick and choose the holidays that you like more. So every year I grit my teeth and work on recipes … [Read more...]

Flourless Carrot Walnut Cloud Cookies

flourless carrot walnut cookies

Flourless Carrot Walnut Cloud Cookies are soft, chewy, spicy and perfect for Passover - or year round! I have to admit, I'm posting all these passover recipes, but in my head...I'm in denial. I don't like cooking for passover. I don't like baking for passover. Pesach desserts are seriously not my thing. I always felt like there are only so many ways you can combine the few basic ingredients to form a new passover dessert. Then I came up with these cookies. Carrot cookies are totally different than the usual pesach treats. The texture is light and airy, the flavor is delightful...These are the cookies that made me rethink my hatred of passover cookies! If you're planning your menu … [Read more...]

London Broil Salad on OvertimeCook.jpg

Red Wine London Broil Salad makes an elegant appetizer, a delightful side, or a lighter main - making it perfect for Passover or year-round. Adapted from the hottest new cookbook, A Taste of Pesach.

Roasted Vegetable Potato Salad

Roasted Vegetable Potato Salad

Roasted Vegetable Potato Salad is a totally different take on Potato Salad that's perfect as a Passover Recipe or for all year round! It's that time of year again, huh? I keep trying not to think about Passover's imminent arrival, about all the work that has to be done before it comes, but the world just won't let me forget it! All of my local groceries are busy hiding the bread, crackers, and other such chometz (non-kosher-for-Passover) foods down the hall, behind the partition, down a steep flight of stairs, and through a radioactive screen. Ok, I am exaggerating slightly, but I kinda resent having to go searching for some bread if I want to make a sandwich. You can probably guess … [Read more...]

Red Wine Chocolate Cupcakes with Red Wine Glaze

The classic pairing of red wine and chocolate combine to form these decadent Red Wine Chocolate Cupcakes. I feel like I should start with a warning here. This blog is going to get a little dessert heavy in the coming weeks as we lead up to Purim. Too late, you say? I know, I know. I've been posting a lot of purim goodies lately, and I've got more of them up my sleeve! Starting today, with these crazy awesome cupcakes. We all know that drinking on purim is a tradition - wait, a mitzvah - so that makes these cupcakes downright righteous. If you're making these for kids, opt for a non-alcoholic glaze (like this insanely delightful chocolate glaze). Don't worry about the alcohol in the … [Read more...]

Pecan Pie Hamantashen are a perfectly delicious twist on the traditional favorite.  Don't hate me people, but we're kinda going into Purim mode here. I know. I know. I don't want to face it either.
