Happy Passover

Today is the 4th year anniversary of my wordpress blog and also the beginning of Passover. Yesterday a guy went crazy and killed people just because they were Jewish. I am not a religious man but this psychopath asked this woman if she was Jewish and when she said yes he killed her. If he had asked me I would have given the same answer.

My ancestral homeland in Ukraine is being over run by a new Russian maniac and the Ukraine is beginning to look like Hitler in the Rhineland. I am not a religious man but believe in God and thinkin’ now is a Good time lord for an intervention.

Happy Passover and Happy Easter.

Kreplach for the High Holy Days

In the Jewish religion, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are called the High holy days. They are the celebration of the lunar New Year and the day of Atonement. While I am not a very religious person, I do enjoy the culture and the basis of most cultures start with food. Kreplach are little meat filled dumplings that are great in chicken soup or in a stir fry. They can be made any time but traditionally are made on the HIgh Holy Days. This video features my lovely wife, Hinda and her recipe and technique which she learned from her mother. It is long video and old school but filled with great cooking tips and by the end you will be able to make your own Kreplach and eat them too.
