Sarah’s Passover Seder- How to Make Your Table Look Like a Million!

11 Comments 17 March 2011

Sarah Mamiye is widely known among family and friends for her elegant flair for entertaining.  If you are lucky enough to be invited to her home for a marjan game, Shabbat dinner or any Jewish Holiday, you are bound to be amazed by her stunning table. Not only is her table beautiful, but Sarah showed true “hachnasat orchim”(the mitzvah of welcoming guests) when I had to cancel a Passover trip at the last minute one year, and she jumped to the rescue and invited my entire family to join her family for the Seder. (I wish I took pictures!!!)

Enjoy this sneak peek into a memorable evening, and remember, you don’t have to go all out with your holiday budget to have it look like you did!!   Marlene

“Hi Marlene,

My Passover 2011 table setting inspiration started when I found the green vases at Home Goods. I knew I wanted cherry blossoms…..but with all the cleaning and cooking, I had no time to go to the flower market. Thanks to Shirley Barnathan, my centerpieces came out beautiful! Next I ran to Amazing Savings where I bought the gold chargers and plastic gold dot plates. On my way out I saw the adorable plastic mini cups and thought they would be perfect for the berachot. Between Home Goods and Amazing Savings I was able to change the look of my table without spending a fortune.
Happy holidays! Sarah”

Susie Fishbein’s Greek Chicken for Passover

1 Comment 17 March 2011

Ever since I bought Susie  Fishbein‘s Passover by Design cookbook, I’ve been using her chicken recipes all year round . Her Greek Garlic Chicken is so quick and easy, and really looks like a magazine photo when done!

The fresh oregano and some fresh sliced lemons should be sprinkled on top as a garnish.

Kosher Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 chickens, cut into eighths, skinned
  • 2 onions, cut into chunks
  • 2-3 lemons
  • 12-16 sprigs of oregano
  • 8 cloves of fresh garlic, halved
  • sea salt, black pepper
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1 cup of Passover white cooking wine
  • 1 and 1/2 cup of pitted kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup  whole kalamata olives for garnish

Directions for this Kosher Recipe:

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  • Place chicken pieces in a roaster. (I buy my chicken pieces without the skin.)
  • Add the onion chunks. Slice the lemons legnthwise and squeeze the lemons over the chicken.
  • Throw the lemon slices over the chicken. Scatter some whole and  some stripped oregano leaves over the chicken.
  • Add the garlic and season with salt and pepper.
  • Drizzle with oil and wine.
  • Toss the mixture together.
  • Sprinkle chopped olives over chicken.
  • Baked covered, if using chicken without the skin, bake until chicken is fully cooked  and uncover for 15 minutes till brown in color.
  • Garnish with fresh oregano and sliced lemons.
