SAN DIEGO– You’ve made it through Seder-night dinners and holiday brunches, matzo for breakfast and matzo for dinner. You’re starting to crave baked goods and comfort foods and fresh, easy meals. The kids are kvetching and relatives keep dropping by. With several more days of Passover, what’s a home cook to do?

The Easy-Way-out-of-Passover Cookbook will help you go out in style. Featuring a collection of over 100 kosher recipes for Passover in a convenient stand-up, flip-display format, this cookbook will get you out of your matzo-induced funk and excited to get back in the kitchen.

Author Mindy Ginsberg, who has written two previous cookbooks published in Israel, takes an easy, delicious and homemade approach to Passover cooking. She puts a contemporary spin on classic dishes including charoset, chicken soup, and matzo brei with recipes that are creative, simple, and fun. In other words, The Easy-Way-out is your answer to a stress-free holiday.

Recipes are divided into sections which cover all your cooking basics: quick meals, soups, salads, sauces and dressings, fish, meat and poultry, side dishes, vegetables, and desserts. Matzo meal is used in many recipes in place of other grains and starches. All of the recipes are kitniyot-free (made without legumes, seeds, corn or rice) so they’re suitable for both Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews.

Suggested menus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for every day of Pesach – from the first night’s Seder to the last day of Yom Tov – make meal-planning a breeze, and range from multi-course holiday feasts and Shabbat dinner to matzo pizza and leftovers.

With its variety of dishes, straightforward instructions, practical advice and a dash of humor, The Easy-Way-out-of-Passover Cookbook is one to keep near the stove and cook from year-round.
