Urgent help needed: Archives mystery to solve
Sometimes working in an archive is like a bit like an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. You need good detective skills like Nancy Drew. You find something and you have to solve a mystery. We opened this folder and we knew we had a puzzle. We only have the information on the label and this photo. The leads have run cold.
If you have some ideas about what this really is and how it relates to the Vignellis, please let us know!

Passover Friendly Playoff Party!!!

Oh joy…the NHL Playoffs are here and everyone is invited, even Elijah! (But not the Toronto Maple Leafs, because they suck.)

So, what are you going to serve to all of the crazy hockey fans at your seder?

  • (warning: this not all non-gebrokts, it’s kitniyot-free, but not all celiac-friendly, plus there’s a lot of dairy…hope you like dairy…)

Fun appetizers: What Jew Wanna Eat? ALWAYS corners the market on fun. They offer up MACHOS!!! Matzah + Nachos = Machos. We make these year round, but they’re extra fun for the Playoffs. Make some fresh guacamole & and your own salsa & it’s passover fun for all.

How about Pizza Matzo Brie? It’s a quickie too, using Sabra Turkish Salad. I’m a big fan of the traditional Matzah pizza myself, just don’t forget to line your pan!!!

How about Homemade Gluten Free Tatertots via The Honour System. Leftover baked potatoes + caramelized onions make this finger food a winner all year round with any dip.

Since pure tapioca starch is Kosher for Passover (I checked) how about something exotic, like Pão de queijo. It’s fluffy, cheesy and addictive. Best sports, party, or seder food ever!

Meal time: Vegetable Kugel w/Caramelized Leeks This can be easily turned celiac friendly by switching the 3 TB of matzah meal to Potato Starch. (If you’re like me, you horde potato starch) or a Potato Kugel w/ caramelized onions and sriracha! I bet it would be just as good with Gochujang…

If you want to get all meaty up in here, Joy of Kosher’s Braised Short Rib Sandwich on Passover Bagels is a winner. (hooray for the slowcooker!!)

Dessert: It has to be “That Chocolate Almond Matzah Dreck” (as it’s lovingly referred to in my family.) I think everyone else calls it Toffee Brickle or something else less offensive. The best, and most foolproof recipe I’ve found is by pastry chef David Lebovitz. Chocolate-Covered Caramelized Matzoh Crunch. (That name works too)

If you want a change from the traditional matzah/toffee combo, Amy Kritzer put in her column in The Jewish Week a Sea Salt & Chocolate Matzah Truffle with Mansichewitz Glaze…shmancy!!

If you need Celiac friendly desserts, What Jew Wanna Eat has a fab list of over 40 recipes from all over the internet. Everything from the ubiquitous chocolate torte to brownie cookies and truffles.

So whomever you root for, as long as it isn’t the New York Rangers:

Oh, the school lunches…being stuck doing the four questions, because your sister is a doofus & a con-artist…

I thought we were the only ones who had the “What’s the deal with the lettuce??” conversation every year! Then there was the year we forgot the roasted bone & my mom threw a dog biscuit on there. So classy…my grandma almost had a coronary.

I always thought we were “that family”…sounds like EVERYONE is “that family”

Following up on the news that construction could soon be underway on a new practice facility, there appears to be another key addition on the way for the 76ers.

Well, I can sleep well at night again…

It was nice of them to announce officially that “Hip Hop” isn’t dead…

I just hope they bring back “Big Shot,” he was awesome…

I think my favorite part of it has to be the fact that the playoffs start and end so much later than they used to. I thought I was just being old and saying “didn’t it used to end in, like May???” but they did…I’m not crazy…at least for saying that…
