1.“Hi Marlene, Happy holidays, I got creative this year!” Terri Harary

2.A Bountiful Passover Table by Rochelle Falack- (note the reading glasses at the head of the table!)

3.  A Seder Tablescape that helps feed the less fortunate in Israel- by Miriam Kairey

“This year I have added a special mitzvah to my seder.  I purchased place cards from Meir Panim.  Each card represents a donation to feed the hungry in Israel.  So as we are feasting we can remember our cousins in Israel, some of whom are unfortunately not eating as abundantly. On my table is a chicken dish I just made up.

 Crunchy Chicken Cutlets

  • 2lbs. thin boneless chicken breasts
  • Breading: 8 boards matzoh
  • 4 Tbs dried oregano leaves
  • 2 Tbs. coarse salt
  • 2 Tbs. Paprika
  • 6 eggs

Break up  4 Matzoh boards in the Cuisinart.  Add half the other ingredients. Pulse until coarsely chopped.  Some of the matzoh will be finely ground and that is ok.  Empty crumbs into a bowl and repeat. Bread chicken by dipping into dry crumbs, then eggs, then dry crumbs again. Fry until golden.

Happy Pesach wherever you are!” Miriam

4.  Thank You  Patti Rotman!

“Our family has made the trek from Toronto to Florida for 23 years to celebrate Passover with special relatives. With so many decades and age ranges represented, our table always combines fun and tradition. From the frogs “jumping” out off each wine glass and a “plague” finger puppet at each place setting, to the cover for shmura matzah, we always celebrate in a joyous, traditional and inclusive fashion. Chag sameach to everyone at the Jewish Hostess” Patti Rotman

7. Claudia does it again! by Claudia Bildirici

  • “I used a red vinyl fabric bought about 3 yards cost 30.00
  • This was to represent blood. and cleaned up like a dream even after the
  • wine was spilled!
  • The aloe vera plants were to look like the desert….
  • Under each plate over the charger was a picture of frogs
  • The masks were ordered from amazon and had the plagues on each. Kids
  • got a kick out of the adults who wore them during the seder
  • It was a fun table to be at!

Claudia”

 

 

8. Bringing the Outdoors In! by Natalie Greenberg

Hi Marlene-
I was really inspired to create a beautiful seder table this year after viewing all of the ones on your website.
This year we will be so many people that we do not fit in my dining room! So I set up in the living room.
I have green accents in the living room so I used that idea to create a spring seder look.
I rented tables and cloth toppers ( they look like trellises!) from All Affairs, and everything else I own.
The created the place card holders from votive candle holders that I already owned and filled them with
babys breath and then a name card. I will use the leaf platters for all of the greens.
I am so pleased with my look- can’t wait to finish cooking and sit down to enjoy!
Have a very happy holiday- send my love to your family.
Love, Natalie Greenberg

 

9. A Glamourous Seder Table by Gladys Haddad- Gorgeous as usual, Gladys!

Hi Marlene,

I hope you had a wonderful chag. I saw this on Facebook and I thought of you and had to share it. It’s a picture of some soldiers in the Israeli Navy celebrating their seder in an unusual setting. The table may not be a gorgeous as yours, but it’s certainly unique!

Chag sameach ve’kasher, Margo

 

11.Passover Table By Connie Billie- Thank you Connie! Love the blues, and loving the wine carafes!

12. Sarah Beyda’s  Passover Table Setting- Cool silverware setup!

13. As Sweet As It Gets!- 

“Dear Marlene,

Hag Sameach! I enjoy following your blog-

We had a fun seder for 24 relatives and friends.  My husband made the seder fun for the many kids at the table as well as the adults.  There were hand motions for the order of the seder, role-playing, lots of questions and festive singing.  For karpas we like to do a fun vegetable dish so that people do not wait to eat until too long.  This year, for karpas I served a roasted eggplant and tomato napoleons with pesto.   It was delish!  At dinner we enjoyed brisket, apricot chicken, quinoa salad, roasted veggies, and sweet potato.  For dessert, we had my signature Pavlova, an apple cake, and a chocolate mousse cake from my aunt.  All had a delightful time.  Thanks, Oksana V. Bella  www.assweetasitgets.com

Jeanette’s Chicken and Veggie Tacos

1 Comment 28 February 2012

Looking for a great healthy recipe for tacos?

My sister Jeanette makes a great chicken taco recipe that her brood of hoodlums can down in a minute. (just joking- she has all boys B’H’ and when they come over all h— breaks loose!-Jeanette- I  really do love your kids with all my heart!).

When I invited her to my Purim party I silently panicked. You know that inner fear you get when you are not sure if you are cooking enough food? So, when she offered to bring a dish, I felt relief. I just told her to bring something that all of her kids will love. And she did!

When I texted her that my Jewish Hostess readers requested her healthy tacos  recipe as seen on my

Purim Party Post,

she replied,:

“Ooh how exciting!!

  1. Ok: heat an 8inch skillet wth a teaspoon of oil.
  2. Add 1 pound of organic chicken chop meat continuously breaking with a fork, until no longer pink.
  3. add 1/2 cup water and the seasoning packet that comes in the Ortega box.
  4. Shred lettuce, fresh corn off the cob and place in a t0asted taco shell with chicken on bottom.
  5. Its delicious and so easy. I serve wth mazza friday night!-

Shabbat Shalom!

Jeanette

P.S. Jeanette sells all top brands of activewear. Whether you are an exercise guru, or just need comfy cool leggings and tops to hang out in, Jeanette has it all.
