Safta Miriam's Passover Seven Layer Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
So delicious! This is a Passover dessert I will actually look forward to! It is amazing to see how many people this cake will feed. I received nearly two dozen variations on "yum." I only made one substitution: using the "don't cook with wine you won't drink" principle, I chose a semi-sweet kosher red wine, and will stick to this choice in the future. It was sweet enough without the cough-syrupy flavor of Manischewitz. A minor warning: make sure you either start shopping well ahead of time or go to a kosher grocery if you adhere strictly to Passover restrictions; finding chocolate without soy emulsifier is very difficult and I was unable to find margarine without soybean oil.

Haroset for Passover

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
The right balance of fruit and nuts, wonderfully delicious. You may want to substitute date syrup for honey if you can find it for a little extra authenticity, but either way this is my go-to charoset.

Haroset

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
Maybe it's just me, but I prefer a slightly higher apples-to-nuts ratio. I also recommend increasing the wine, and consider substituting honey, or better yet, date syrup (the original flowing "honey"), for the sugar.

Mom's Warm Milk

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
Add a little cinnamon or a tiny bit of cinnamon extract and this drink makes eyelids heavy in minutes! I like to use dark brown sugar instead of white for a bit more flavor.
