Passover

Salmon Veggie PattiesDo your kids eat fish? While Sawyer loves salmon, lately Liv has been hesitant to eat fish unless it’s made into a breaded patty (I find finger foods are always a hit with my kids). I also add caramelized onions and sweet red bell pepper for extra vitamins, potassium, and fiber! 💡 The great thing about this recipe is that we usually use leftover cooked salmon from earlier in the week. I love repurposing leftovers so no one gets bored eating the same foods throughout the week.
Citrus Honey Orange MuffinsIt’s pure magic when sweet golden honey combines with fresh citrusy orange and creates an explosion of caramelized goodness in muffin form. 💫 Grain-free and made with almond flour, these muffins are also perfect for Passover! We love baking these honey orange muffins because they’re perfect for little hands & lunchbox snacks, they’re a great vitamin C-rich meal prep breakfast food, and also because they’re oh so crave-worthy 🤤. (#sponsored) These sweet + springy muffins are made with organic orange juice from @unclemattsorganic. We love this family owned company because their products are truly clean label: certified glyphosate residue free, no toxic pesticides, no GMOs, and no preservatives. And did I mention their orange juice tastes so fresh + sweet? Sawyer goes through bottles and bottles (and bottles) 😂.
Chocolate Caramel Matzah “Crack”ersThe Jewish holiday of Passover commemorates the exodus of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. During the 8-day holiday, it is forbidden to eat leavened grains such as wheat, spelt, barley, oats, and rye. The reason for this is that in their haste to escape from Pharaoh and slavery in Egypt, the Jews did not have enough time to wait for bread to rise. Instead, they ate matzah, unleavened bread. While matzah usually gets a bad rap for being dry, when combined with the proper ingredients, it turns into an addictive dessert that even my picky husband can't resist. This chocolate caramel matzah has become a yearly Passover tradition that the kids help make which gets them excited for the holiday. It's fun to include the kids in holiday baking so they learn about their familial traditions and make lasting memories (swipe to see the kids make it through the years!). Chag Sameach (Happy Holidays) to all who celebrate Pesach (Passover)!
No Bake Easter Egg NestsAlthough we don’t celebrate Easter, Liv & Sawyer learned about the holiday through Peppa Pig’s Easter egg hunt, and once they saw chocolate was involved, they begged me to join in on the festivities 😂. These no-bake nests taste like oatmeal raisin cookies and are naturally sweetened by dates. We used coconut flour, making it a grain free and gluten free treat. Oh, and for all those celebrating Passover, this works for that holiday too (as long as peanut butter is part of your tradition)! Cookies bring us all together✌️
