Baking Our Way

This weekend we celebrate both Passover and Easter. As an interfaith couple, this presents both challenges and rewards.

On Friday I made a flourless chocolate cake with berries for the Second Seder we hosted at our house along with M's family on Sat. M led the Seder for his family and some friends and did a wonderful job.

I also made Easter baskets for my side of the family on Sunday with jelly beans, chocolate covered blueberries, homemade chocolate chip cookies, eggs dyed with red cabbage and onion skins, and fudge soap (less fattening than real fudge but smells good enough to eat!).

I think we're navigating our two family traditions quite deliciously.
