Passover Menu Ideas 2011


As promised, here are my Passover Menu Ideas for 2011! This list is a combination of recipes I posted this year along with some of my favorite Passover recipes from 2010. I hope you find it helpful as you plan your holiday meals. Please remember that any packaged products you buy should be certified Kosher for Passover.

If you decide to make a dish from the list, please comment me here on my website and let me know what you think! There is nothing more gratifying than hearing from you all, and your input helps to make this a better and more useful site. Also, if you like what you’re learning here, please consider sharing with your friends!

This year, for the first time in close to a decade, I will not be cooking our Seder. We are celebrating with family and friends in Israel. While I love cooking for the holiday, I can’t tell you how excited I am to be celebrating Passover in the Holy Land. I’ll be sure to post a full recap of our Israeli Seder when I get back to the States.

For now, you’ll have to pardon me as I take a holiday break from blogging. I’ll be saying hi and posting some pictures now and then, and I’ll be updating my Twitter @theshiksa and Tumblr with pictures from the trip. However, I’m taking a little break from posting recipes till the end of April. It’s now time to relax and have fun with my family.

Chag Pesach Sameach! Have a beautiful Passover full of love and light!

xoxo Tori

  1. For some reason or other I’m always the one elected to make the soup. Never used dill but I’ll follow it exactly tomorrow. I’m doing chicken soup this year since my vegetarian son will be 500 miles away. I mix lotsa parsley in the matzo balls. Thanks, HH

  2. Iron Chef Passover- Thanks Tori- tonight’s ‘secret ingredient’ was …Lemon. I made the Lemon Chili Chicken and the Lemony Almond Macaroons- both were a hit.
    I only had unsweetened coconut, so I added a little bit more sugar- but it was great.

    1. Harris and Michelle– sorry for the delayed reply, I was in Israel when your comments came through. Harris, I hope you enjoyed the soup! Michelle, I’m thrilled that your first Passover was a success. Here’s to many more! :)

      Ilana– Yay! How cool that you had a lemon themed Passover night. Those lemony almond macaroons are always a hit during the holidays, and they’re so easy! Glad you enjoyed the chicken, too. :)

  3. This is my second time using your recipes and the second time I’ve had really wonderful results in the kitchen for a Jewish holiday. Thanks!
