I am knee-deep in shredded coconut and almond flour, preparing for Passover!  My mom is visiting for a few days and we’re having a great time, squeezing in some shopping, ladies’ lunches and museums in between cooking.  If you don’t observe Passover, you can look at the menus anyway and see if there’s something you can make on Monday and Tuesday.  Have a great week!

Monday: Passover seder (check out this post and this post for menu ideas and timelines)

Tuesday: Passover seder

Wednesday: Matzoh lasagne, roasted asparagus

Thursday: Greek pasta salad (use legume, brown rice or corn/quinoa pasta if you observe passover)

Good Friday: Mediterranean fish stew

Saturday lunch: Cauliflower crust pizzas (I am going to test this out with frozen defrosted cauli-rice from Trader Joe’s, squeezed out in a nut milk bag, and start on step 5!)

Easter Sunday: A delicious Easter menu I did for Jenni Kayne and The Chalkboard should be posted in the next day or two!

For breakfast or brunch, I always love a good frittata. Here are recipes for Swiss Chard and another for Artichoke and Spinach.

This Oatmeal Soufflé is a winner.  Or these Strawberry Scones (best made the day of.)

Muffins are always a good idea.  Here are recipes for Savory Spinach and Feta, Blueberry-SpeltGrain-free Chocolate Chia BananaGrain-free Cranberry-Orange which I would convert to something more spring-like, or Banana Carrot

These are my favorite salads for spring:  Perfect Spring SaladAsparagus Salad with Mint Vinaigrette (my favorite dressing ever!), Spinach and Quinoa Salad with Feta and Dill, my Kale Salad would be great with radishes and strawberries.

Creamy Asparagus Soup and Spring Minestrone are light and perfect for the holiday.

I’m sure you have your own Easter ham or lamb recipe, but this is a lovely chicken and artichoke recipe I often make for spring dinners.

Desserts are always the fun part: Lemon Ice Torte with Strawberry-Rhubarb SauceCoconut MacaroonsGrain-free Balsamic Roasted Strawberry TartWhole Grain Carrot CakeCarrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies


Here is what you can do ahead (not including seder and Easter):


Make dressing for pasta salad

Chop cucumbers for pasta salad

Slice olives for pasta salad


Cut veggies for fish stew and store in an airtight container (potatoes need to be stored in water or done right before to avoid turning)

Cut fish into pieces for stew


Make cauliflower pizza crust dough the night before and/or pre-bake the cauliflower crusts earlier that day
