Delicious Passover Recipes – Tested and Loved

I have some wonderful Jewish friends who are getting ready to celebrate the Passover Holiday.

I have previously prepared and posted several Passover recipes, but today I am providing pictures and links, for your convenience.

Light and Airy Paska – Aunt Maria’s Recipe

I have my favorite Easter Paska recipe, which I have been baking for many years and my family loves it.

However, I was always very impressed by my aunt’s light and airy Paska/Babka, so as soon I received her recipe I baked this wonderful and delicious bread in my own kitchen and was very happy with the final results.  My family fully approved as well.

Fun Crocheting Projects

My first crocheting experience began when I was about 13 years old while watching my sister (who is only 3 years older than me) crocheting a pair of gloves for herself.  I was so amazed by her crocheting skills after seeing how nicely the gloves turned out, that from then on crocheting became one of my hobbies as well.

Steamed Fruit Dumplings – Recipe and Technique

This recipe is a very old favorite of mine. It reminds me of my grandmother’s cooking days and my Sunday visits to her with my mom.
I love these fluffy dumplings because they are so light in texture, and so delicious served with melted butter and sugar.
This recipe goes back to my great-grandmother who was of German descent, and most likely back to her mother and grandmother, which datewise would go back to the 1700s.

Mushroom/Rice or Meat/Rice Filling for Cabbage Rolls

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls also known as Holubtsi in Ukrainian or Golabki in Polish, are not only delicious but also a meal in itself.

Please click on this link for a vegetarian version of cabbage rolls, to view the step-by-step preparation process for all cabbage rolls, no matter what the filling is.

Today I will post a recipe for two additional and quite popular cabbage roll fillings: Sauteed Mushrooms filling and Meat filling.
