  1. Brilliatn recipe. Could not stop eating it. Served it to top sliced bread.
  2. as I couldnt get any chicken livers this Passover I decided to make this-as is healthier anyway, it was a hit!! it looks like the real mcoy, smells like it, texture was great and even almost...tasted like it!! my 70year old uncle couldn't believe it! and it was so easy to make! Thank you and will make it again. (oh, I also added a garnish of a grated hard boiled egg partly mixed thru..and some parsley sprigs)
  3. My expert chopped liver lovers ate this right up. And it is so much better for you than the real thing! This cooked as per the instructions and was so easy. I garnished with some sliced olives and Italian parsley. I know that I will be making this again.


I am a stay at home mom with a cooking obsession. I LOVE to cook! I am the married mother of 3 children that have been very patient with me trying different kinds of food. They are not picky eaters because I have them try strange kinds of meals all the time. I love to collect recipes and try them out on my family. I have a chocolate labrador retriever named Roscoe that I am training right now. He is wonderful! I love to read and do research on the internet. I just recently had a heart transplant. Very scary experience, but the wonders of modern medicine! I hope to get to post alot on this site and I hope you all find time to review my recipes as well.
