OK, OK, I know; your bubbie made the perfect matzo balls. But they are finicky little rascals that are made a 1000 different ways and everyones bubbies always made them best. What I want to share here is the simplest, no nonsence methode of the creation of soft and/or firm matzo balls; for just like white and dark meat people, there are soft and firm matzo ball people.
My MIL is famous for her chocolate chip cookies, or at least she WAS until last year when I made these and sadly hers just sat while these were gobbled up so I think she's using my recipe this year. I highly recommend doubling this recipe as they really seem to disappear quickly.
Better than the kind in the tin, homemade soft and delicious coconut macaroons, dipped in chocolate. YUM! (These will be gobbled up before the second seder, so make sure you get one at the first seder while you have a chance!) From Joan Nathan. Note: Zaar won't let me specify matzah cake meal, it only recognizes matzo meal. Be sure to use the cake meal variety.
Do you find that brining your turkey gives you the wonderful flavor and moistness you want, but a lot of mess and hassle as well? I found a dry brining method based on the Zuni Cafe cookbook that seems to work wonders, dry wonders! It's much less awkward than brining with gallons of salt water! Cook time is time the bird brines in the fridge.
Sinfully rich, a first-class dessert appropriate for special occasions. Especially impressive served in champagne flutes with a few fresh berries on top. This can also be used as a filling, spread or piped into another dessert recipe.

From The New York Times and Craig Clairborne's cookbook. She is the mother of Eric Segal who is most famous for being the author of Love Story. The cookbook said "One of the most popular Passover menu articles to appear in the New York Times over the last couple of decades was this one. Mrs. Zeger's chocolate cake is indeed exceptional".
Very old, traditional recipe from Spain. Nowadays Sephardic is associated with Morocco etc., but it comes from Sepharad which means Spain and from where once came all Sephardic Jews (as well as many Ashkenazim before becoming Ashkenazi). Vary tasty, rich dish for leftover matzoh.
