Passover Rolls – This was Bev Nadler’s mother’s favorite recipe.
“I’ve tried many different recipes rolls but I’ve had the best success with this one.”

Preheat oven to 375


  • 2 cups water
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt

After the mixture comes to a boil, add 1 ½ cups matzo meal and ½ cup cake meal.

Remove from stove and using a mixer, beat in 6 eggs, one at a time.

Form 12 – 14 round shaped, slightly flattened rolls and place on either a greased or parchment paper lined cookie sheet leaving room for them to expand. Bake for 1 hour.

Delicious right out of oven or reheat before serving. Delicious for a sandwich or for breakfast with your favorite jam or cheese.


Strawberry Mousse – This recipe is from Betsy Wolf who used to live in our community and is a marvelous cook. She and her husband Sheldon currently live in Philadelphia.

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, diced and sprinkled with sugar
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 TBSP lemon juice
  • 3 egg whites
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 TBSP sweet red Passover wine

Beat egg whites and gradually add sugar until combined. Add strawberries, lemon juice and salt and continue beating. Add wine and beat at low, then medium speed for a total of 15 minutes. Spoon into a large bowl and freeze. May be garnished with strawberries, shaved chocolate or whipped cream.

Great, refreshing dessert!
