Passover Recipe Roundup!

Whazzup! I'm just popping in to say a quick hello before we down some extremely chametzy pizza and then zip off to Whistler for our Passover ski trip!! This is gonna be a great Passover, not only because we're going to be spending it on a cozy mountain, but also because there's a new haggadah up in here (!!!), a new seder plate from lily (bonus: lily is also a new member of #teamsavory matzo brei. welcome, lily!), and some of my favorite new Passover recipes are in the April issue of Rachael Ray Magazine. Pick up a copy, there's a Passover tater tot hotdish!!!!

DANNY MACAROONS

last week, after a wonderful morning of surprise visitors bearing chocolate croissants and coworkers bearing home-brewed honey liqueur, i schlepped up to spanish harlem to photograph the last thing i'd ever expect to find in spanish harlem: a macaroon man that makes--mum, cover your ears--the best macaroons i ever damn had. they were so good and chewy and gooey and moist and amazing and on the way home i told myself "self, you will not open the bag of macaroons that the nice macaroon man gave you to bring home to mum, you will not," but i did. i opened the bag of macaroons that the nice macaroon man gave me to bring home to mum and i ate the one with chocolate on it {chocolate o'clock had not yet happened that day anyway}. oh it made the long long ride home so much better. 

go check out more photos of danny macaroons in this slideshow on jew and the carrot. there you'll also find danny's recipe for rice pudding macaroons!

NOSH & STROLL

while the city nursed its st. patty's day hangover, i toured around with a little group on the museum at eldridge street's passover nosh & stroll. it was so lovely! we learned all about jewish history by way of food on the lower east side, ate the hottest horseradish, and the freshest matzo {right off the conveyor belt!}. see more photos in a little slide show on the jew and the carrot!

RECIPE: CURRY COCONUT MACAROONS

curry and coconut go together like the ondes martenot and an orchestra: a little bit unusual and totally wonderful. and that was really just a lame attempt at a relevant analogy since i am seeing a concert of messiaen tonight and couldn't be more excited. the idea for these came from all that delicious curry with the coconut milk in it and they are the perfect passover dessert. 

curry coconut macaroons

2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 large egg white
a pinch of salt

preheat oven to 350. in a small bowl combine coconut and curry powder. in a large bowl beat the egg white and salt until stiff peaks form. gently fold the coconut into the egg white. spoon onto a prepared cookie sheet* and bake 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.  

*i use an ice cream scoop since i like mine big, but you can use a smaller scoop if you'd like. if you do this, check the macaroons after 10 minutes because they will take a shorter time to bake.
