8 Recipes for an Easy and Delicious Passover

When I was a kid, I loved being invited by my Jewish friends to take part in their holiday celebrations. It was so much fun participating in and learning about the traditions of another culture, and Yom Kippur, Hanukkah and Passover are among the holidays I remember most. At Passover, I was always endlessly jealous during lunchtime as I sat in our cafeteria eating whatever was being served that day, while my Jewish classmates ate from their brown bag lunches featuring a variety of Passover foods.

Many years later I found my husband and the love of my life, and guess what? He turned out to be Jewish! So I guess I was destined to keep enjoying these traditional foods after all. Look at this slideshow for a peek into what our family will be enjoying this year.

    Traditionally, matzah balls can be gargantuan, so you can only imagine how big they look to a little kid. To avoid intimidating my little ones with basketball-sized matzah balls in their bowls, I rolled mine into little spheres, making them perfect for tiny mouths to eat. And these matzah balls are light and airy, so even when you're feeing under the weather, this nutritious soup won't weigh you down!
