Easy Passover Recipes
the taste of freedom
Here's my one word definition for easy Passover recipes: Simple.
Something that you'd make on any given Shabbos to please your family. Something you enjoy making and eating. And it helps if it's pretty. And because it's simple, it will probably be fairly healthy, too. O.K.; bases covered, got your list? I'm happy to share mine...
