Passover Grocery List

Now don't think you have to run out and purchase everything on this list right away. When I post a recipe, you may or may not have something on hand. When it comes to quiche, soup or salad recipes, you can definitely make substitutions with what you happen to have. Remember, cooking is not an exact science (like baking!), so if you dislike cilantro -like me- skip it! If you like it hot- add a jalepeno pepper. Oh, and by the way, even though the list of vegetables looks particularly long, believe me, you will go through them very fast.

Every breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack recipe will include the items on this list. Here we go!

Hi Karen,

You know, sometime a grammatical error is made that is so awful it has to be entirely deleted! ;)

I'm looking forward to reading your posts during your celebration. However, I cringe at the thought of no bread for a week... :)
