With the holiday of Passover just around the corner, I wanted to share a few recipes that I remember from my childhood.

It was always tough not being able to take a sandwich to school for lunch, so my mom made us matzah meal rolls. They tasted OK and they were a great place to put the turkey and tomato. My uncle used these rolls for scrambled eggs and cheese at breakfast time and then tuna and egg salad at lunch time.

2 cups matzah meal
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
½ cup oil (make sure the oil is ok for Passover)
4 eggs

Mix the matzah meal, salt and sugar together to blend. In a saucepan, heat the water and oil until it boils. Pour the water and oil mixture into the bowl with the matzah meal mixture. Mix them together. Beat each egg, adding them in one at a time. Mix thoroughly. Allow mixture to stand about fifteen minutes.

Use a bit of oil to oil your hands before you make the “rolls.” Use the dough to make balls/rolls. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees about fifty minutes. The rolls should be golden brown on the outside. These will hold a few days sitting out, once made.

The other recipe I’d like to share with you is matzah meal pancakes. Even now as an adult, if I’m visiting my mom I ask her to please make these during one meal while I’m there. Of course as a mom myself, I do make these for my kids each year.

1 egg, beaten
½ cup water mixed with enough wine to equal ¾ cup
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
4 ½ ounces of matzah meal

Mix all ingredients together and then make your pancakes. As a child, I always put grape jelly on these. As an adult, I tend to use applesauce on top. My mom still makes them nice and crunchy on the edges. She does this by using real butter to fry them up. These pancakes are quite dense and thick. When you fry them, fry them over a low flame for a longer period of time so that they cook completely.

So many of my friends would spend the week of Passover complaining that they couldn’t eat bread. I actually loved that week knowing my mom was going to make so many of my favorites that I only got once per year.

Audrey’s mom always entertained when she was growing up. Audrey learned to prepare for large groups and has often entertained 15-30 people in her home at a time. You can find more great recipes at http://www.recipe-barn.com

You can paint with colored cocoa butter to give confections an artistic edible decoration. The cocoa butter comes in a variety of different colors and has no taste so it won’t affect the flavor of the item you are decorating. Pastry chef’s first started using colored cocoa butter to enhance the look of their chocolate confections in the late 1990′s. Early on you had to create your own colors by mixing powdered color with pure cocoa butter. Now it is much easier as you can buy colored cocoa butter in bottles from specialty pastry supply stores.

The most common application for colored cocoa butter is on chocolate moulds. Once the color drys you can fill the mould with chocolate. Because of the natural fats in the chocolate and cocoa butter the colored cocoa butter adheres nicely to the chocolate. The end result is a beautiful shiny piece of chocolate.

The effect is so beautiful that many chocolate companies are now decorating all of their chocolates with colored cocoa butter. To make your chocolates look beautiful follow these easy steps:

1. Warm the cocoa butter in your microwave for 10 to 15 seconds. Stir the mixture and microwave for 10 more seconds. Keep stirring and microwaving until the colored cocoa butter is smooth and completely melted.

2. Use a paint brush and apply the color to your chocolate mould in whatever fashion you choose. This is your chance to let your artistry shine! 3. Allow the freshly painted moulds to set for at least 5 minutes before painting with a new color.

4. Allow mould to set for 10 minutes when done painting.

5. Once the mould has set you can fill it with melted chocolate and cool it in a refrigerator. This usually takes up to an hour or more.

6. Tip: Make sure you knock out all of the air bubbles my tapping the mould gently on a table.

7. After your chocolate has set in the mould you can turn the mould upside down and tap it until the chocolates come out. 8. Admire your work! The chocolates should come out of the moulds with your colored cocoa butter designs. Make sure to store them in an airtight container to keep them fresh!

Enjoy Painting with Colored Cocoa Butter!

Making your own soap at home isn’t just for your grandmother anymore. For quite a while, this hobby has been increasingly fashionable among young and artistic people. Because the creative freedom that making soap offers is a great outlet, the soap is chemical-free, and it costs less than buying — once you’ve done the initial investments — knowing how to make bar soap has far-reaching benefits.

If you haven’t read anything about this before, you might be apprehensive of such a complicated process. So I’m glad to tell you that making soap at home is much easier than one would expect. The basic process consists of mixing lye (also known as sodium hydroxide), a naturally-occurring chemical, with fatty oils or fats. These can be anything from animal fat to olive oil or coconut oil.

The choices vary widely, and this allows you to make your own recipes which suits your own needs. For example, by adding more of certain types of oils such as coconut oil, you get more lather in the soap, if that’s what you prefer. Shea, cocoa butter and hemp oil are known for their moisturizing properties.

That’s one thing I love about making soap – you can choose and combine your own recipes and experiment with the results. When you’re just starting to learn how to make bar soap, keep in mind though that you should keep the ratios of the components the same.

When beginning, you just need to buy the tools and components you don’t already have, and you can begin practicing. Keep in mind that lye is a dangerous chemical and can damage your skin, so when handling it you should be wearing full sleeves, gloves and plastic goggles. Learning to safely work with lye is the hardest part of learning to make bar soap. If you feel confident doing that, then the rest is quite easy!

This is the kind of information that I started out learning how to make bar soap with in the beginning. However, I didn’t feel confident enough to try to create my first batch for a long time, until I found an instructional video that goes through every detail in the process of making soap.
