Claudia’s Passover Marshmallow-Nut Log

11 Comments 27 March 2014

 

by Claudia Bildirici
My Mom made this marshmallow and nut recipe every single year on Passover. We all looked forward to this special Passover dessert. I look back now and wonder, why did she only made them on Passover?
The truth is, you can really make these passover dessert treats all year round but this year, just like my mom,  I waited till Passover 2011 to make them again!

PASSOVER INGREDIENTS :

  • one bag chocolate chips
  • 1 cap of oil
  • two 5 ounce bag mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup chopped toasted pecans
Create this Kosher Recipe:
  1. toast pecans in a 350 oven for 10 min. Toasting will bring out the flavor.  Watch closely they burn quickly
  2. In a microwave melt chocolate chips on high for 30 seconds Mix return for another 30 seconds
  3. do not try to melt the chip completely . they will melt when you mix the chocolate
  4. add a cap of oil to the chocolate and mix ( this will thin the chocolate)
  5. Cool a couple of min.
  6. add marshmallows and 1/4 cup of pecans
  7. mix till all combined and no whites of the marshmallow show
  8. now for the mess!!
  9. take one parchment paper and sprinkle with pecans.. top with 1/2 the mixture in a log shape. top with more pecans
  10. now roll the mixture in the parchment paper trying to tighten the mixture.
  11. repeat and chill till firm about 1-2 hours  Remove paper slice into 1″ rounds and store in freezer. or should I say HIDE in the freezer?
Enjoy and happy holiday!

Use What You Have Table Setting…

No Comments 10 May 2010

I created this table setting with things I had laying around the house…

It’s my idea of a  perfect breakfast/brunch for two. I think it would be absolutely GORGEOUS as a Shavuot table setting set for a family as well.

Many people own white dishes, and this table setting makes a case for them. Why? You can combine them with other sets, bright napkins look fabulous with them and they can never go out of style.  (Mine were actually my mother’s! They are over 25 years old but they still sell them in department stores today! How is that for timeless!)

I added in these bowls that I recently bought from Anthropology($12), colorful napkins that I bought a few years ago and brightly colored glasses that were a wedding gift. Here are some similar ones.

I used a white linen hemstitch placemat, which is perfect for a breakfast or a lunch. You can buy some HERE ($54.00/Set of 6).

It also helps that I have an absolutely beautiful centerpiece that I took from my nephew’s bar mitzvah yesterday!

The point is… You can mix and match the pieces that you already own to create beautiful tablescapes that are both charming and interesting!

How do you change it up for the holidays? Do you mix and match your sets of dishes? Send us photos, we would love to publish them!

Happy Shavuot!

Shavuos Felt Card With Embroidery
Mommy’s Creation: My first
attempt at embroidery on paper, lots of fun!

I sat down the other day and did an impromptu art project together
with two of my kids! And of course I’m happy to share the results with
you, since this is a great project for all ages and abilities. I cut
out lots of petal shaped felt pieces and provided the kids with folded
cards, glue, a box of buttons and some yarn.

Add your kid’s picture and you have a great Mother’s Day Card!

Here’s what they came up
with:

Shavuos Cards Kids versions

Aren’t these just the cutest? My almost 8 yr old daughter did the
one on the left, and my almost 5 yr old son did the one on the right. I
just love seeing their personalities reflected in their art!

You’ll Need:

  • felt
  • buttons
  • yarn
  • thick needle with eye big enough for yarn
  • card stock

Shavuos Cards In Process

How To:

Pretty self explanatory, just some notes about the embroidery:

  1. When embroidering on paper, unlike fabric there is no room for
    making mistakes since a hole is a hole!
  2. So plan ahead and make your holes before you start embroidering.
    Also, you really can’t see what you’re doing from the back, so there’s
    no way to know where to come up through the paper with your needle
    unless you’ve either made holes or marked them with
    indentations.
  3. I used both yarn (green) and embroidery floss (orange) and I love
    the contrast between the two weights.
  4. With embroidered cards you’ll want to work on a flat piece of card
    stock (or two pieces, like mine, namely a white square glued onto a
    pink square) and then glue your artwork to the card after you’ve
    completed the embroidery. Because the embroidered card had some
    dimension it can’t lie flat, (which is actually a plus!) so I used hot
    glue to affix it to the card.

Enjoy, and keep in touch!

An Afikoman Bag to Make With Your Kids

An Afikoman Bag to Make With Your Kids

No Comments 20 March 2010

Its easy to get wrapped up in Passover planning and forget the real purpose of the holiday. Our kids. The memories we create year by year are what they carry with them forever. So, as I started planning my Passover menu, I put down my pen and said to Sarah, “Lets make a Pesach craft.”  Inspired by Kaboose,we gathered some

    • watercolor paints
    • watercolor paper
    • ribbon or raffia
    • hole punch
    • watecolor pencils
    • stencils
    • kosher salt
  1. Cut  a large piece of watercolor paper into 2 large pieces- about 11×13 inches.
  2. Mix your watercolors paints with water to create the colors of your choice.
  3. Spray or spread a thin layer of water on top of the watercolor paper. Blot it slightly with a paper towel so its not too wet.
  4. Paint and splatter paints onto the watercolor paper to your hearts content, letting the colors bleed onto each other.
  5. Sprinkle some kosher salt on top of the colors, the effects are fun to watch.
  6. When dry, stencil the words afikoman in English or Hebrew on a separate piece of watercolor paper using watercolor pencils. Watercolor pencils are fun to use. After drawing your design, wet the design with a brush and watch a mere colored pencil drawing turn into a watercolor design.

  1. You can also stencil flowers or any other design on a separate paper.
  2. Punch holes approximately 2 inches apart along the perimeters of both pages along 3 sides of the pages in order to leave an opening for the afikoman.
  3. Make sure the holes on both pages line up!
  4. Thread a ribbon or raffia through the holes- its a great sewing lesson for little kids!
  5. Make a knot or bow at the end.
  6. Glue the Afikoman words, and your other stencil embellishments onto one of the painted papers.
  7. Enjoy your child’s masterpiece!
