Happy almost Passover! Happy almost Easter! Happy spring!
I was hoping to have a recipe up for Passover this year, but it might not happen. Sometimes non-blog life conspires to keep me away from the stove and camera! Check out Cheater’s Braise Chicken for a great main course, Elegant Springtime Gefilte Fish and Passover Sole à la Meunière for fish-deliciousness, and the Most Decadent Flourless Cookies for dessert! Alternatively, you could dollop seasonally appropriate Rhubarb Compote on a pavlova or some Passover cake?
Happy Purim! That most raucous of feasts is here again (evening of February 28th, and March 1st), and I’ve got just the recipe to satisfy your all-natural, technicolor cookie cravings! Not a drop of food coloring in sight, just gorgeous colors from spices, produce, and tea.
Last year, I gave you The Best Vegan Hamantaschen and flaky, gloriously buttery Tender Butter Hamantaschen, with my all-time favorite poppyseed filling. There’s also a vegan chocolate-sesame version. This year, I’m going bright and vibrant as a carnival, with punchy flavors to tickle your palate!
Happy Monday! And Happy Hanukkah!
I hope you’ve been having a delicious holiday, if you are celebrating. Things should be delicious even if you haven’t been celebrating, of course! If you’re still searching for Hanukkah inspiration, I’ve got you sorted with this round-up!
Happy holidays! Hanukkah is just around the corner (starting sundown on the 12th of December), and I’m so excited to share this very different Hanukkah celebration with you. The holiday celebrates the miracle of one day’s worth of oil burning for eight days. It feels like a fitting feat to recognize these days as we burn the candle at both ends socially, politically, and ideologically. So instead of a(n admittedly crave-worthy) fried recipe, let’s indulge in olive oil’s raw beauty, nuance, and freshness!
