(Submitted by a frequent user of the food page):

For the second year, the biggest hit at this year's sedar were Jamie's Mini Potato Kugels! 100-plus minis were served with the meal, in a basket, in place of the traditional kugel in a 9X13 casserole dish. They disappeared!
The little grandchix, as well as the adults, kept "stealing" them from the basket even before I had the chance to bring them to the food table. They simply couldn't wait to pop them in their mouths.

In addition to the standard mini-muffin silicone forms/pans, I found heart-shaped muffin forms. As you can imagine, they were a big hit too. What a fun and delicious way to express love!

To start this group off, I'd like to invite you to visit the Food Page. This has been an extremely popular feature of the web site, visited by thousands of people from all over the world.

There are over 250 recipes of all types, for holidays and everyday, traditional and contemporary, and from different ethnic traditions. All recipes, whether contributed by famous chefs and cookbook authors (Joan Nathan, Norene Gilletz, Jeff Nathan, Judy Rosenberg, and more) or regular moms like me who enjoy cooking, are all tested in the kitchen and must meet our high standards for taste, ease of preparation, and clarity of instructions.

There are suggested menus as well, including several for Passover. (All recipes can be prepared in a kosher kitchen.) The recipe file and menu file are both searchable, so you can finetune a search for a particular dish or browse as generally as you'd like.

Passover recipes & menus will be featured on the food page within the week. And you can submit your own recipe for possible publication as well! Just email your special recipe(s) to To be informed of new additions to the food page, sign up for the e-newsletter.

Please share your ideas and recipes here, too, so we can all enjoy the Best Jewish Cooking!
