"With supermarket shelves bulging with Passover muffins, Passover granola and even Passover breadsticks, it's hard to grasp that for much of history, this holiday's fare was limited to the simple and home-made. In the shtetl, Passover preparations began at Chanukah when housewives rendered chicken and goosefat into schmaltz,... Read more...

Dining in Again
By Yeshiva Masoras Avos
This is what we would term a “heimishe” community cookbook – a helpful resource for traditional recipes, as well as recipes appropriate for Shabbos and Yom Tov. What makes this book quite unique is that in addition to containing over 550 recipes, the appropriate bracha (prayer) to recite when eating the prepared recipe is actually printed on each page. What a beautiful and appropriate combination – food and food for thought. Dining in Again is a publication benefitting Yeshiva Masoras Avos, Lakewood, New Jersey. For some sample recipes, or to order, visit DiningInAgain.com or order on Dining in Again. We understand that if the book is ordered through the Yeshiva website, a special 100 page Passover insert may be included, depending on availability.
A trio of cheese, fresh spinach, tomatoes, and pine nuts are combined to create a savory Spinach–Herb Cheesecake delight. Serve as an appetizer or with cocktails – it's a star!

The Best Containers for Food Storage
The Today Show featured a segment on food storage containers - presented by Woman's Day Magazine. They spotlighted the top storage container types we should have in our kitchens - from plastic and pyrex to stainless steel. Tips on how to store for easy access; the most efficient sizes. One of our favorites was a stainless steel compartmentalized container that keeps food hot or cold. Great item for packing school or work lunches. Enjoy watching the video from the show!
From KosherEye Friend, Creative Jewish Mom, a craft for Tu B'Shevat - the Jewish celebration that marks the "New Year of the Trees." Children and adults alike will enjoy making this simple, yet elegant, centerpiece using twigs and a heat-proof container.

Empire Kosher - Ready to Roast
Dinner made easy! Empire Kosher Poultry Ready to Roast Chicken Garlic & Herbed Seasoned. A welcome option for those days when you are short on time but want to eat healthfully. The pre–seasoned whole chicken comes in a cook–in bag that can be roasted in the oven (for one hour) or microwaved (20 minutes). We tried it using both cooking methods and liked it –convenient, tasty, and best of all – featherless. All uncooked chickens should look this good!
The Cake Mix Doctor’s Cake Mixes
Anne Byrn followed a cake dream to create a yellow cake mix that gets its color from butter and eggs, not artificial colors, and its scent from real Madagascar vanilla. Her cake dream is now a reality, a Kof–K dairy kosher certified reality.
In addition to the yellow cake mix, Anne’s second creation is a chocolate mix with a deep chocolate fudgy flavor. Her chocolate mission was to develop a cake mix that resulted in a cake that tasted as good as her mom’s, but that didn’t require an afternoon to assemble.
There are only 5 (yellow cake) or 6 (chocolate cake) ingredients in each cake mix, period! No additives, preservatives or trans fats.
The cake mixes – which are available in both old fashioned yellow and deep dark chocolate are simple to make, and oh so good, especially when slathered with frosting…Chocolate Buttercream or Vanilla Buttercream.
