Passover is here, so naturally I’ve been searching for the best recipes (like I do every holiday) for all you foodistas who are hosting a Seder this year. And you know me; I love reinventing traditions with my family. So I thought, why go traditional when you can do Passover with a twist!? Well, I’m ready to get creative with kosher, because from kugels to cobblers, I’ve found some recipes that will really shake up your Seder!
