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.

Ukrainian Easter Egg (Pysanka) – Tradition And Design

Our family celebrates spring with preparations for Easter Sunday Holiday and decorating of Easter Eggs. There are many ways to decorate eggs, such us coloring them with edible dyes in all different pastel colors, placing colorful stickers, beads, ribbons, etc. on eggs, drawing designs with markers, etc. There is also a very intricate egg decorating style, which I will introduce you to, and that is the Ukrainian Easter Egg, Pysanka, design.

My parents were my first mentors, and story tellers, about this old tradition, which was very popular in their native countries, Ukraine and Poland, and continues to thrive in the Diaspora

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.

European Apple Cake- Sharlotka

This European Apple Cake recipe has been shared with me by a friend of mine, and referred to as “Sharlotka”.  The cake is made out of a very rich batter (lots of egg yolks and butter), which makes it so scrumptious.
