esach seders are the stuff legends are made
We religiously follow family recipes to a
"T" lest we hear complaints about how we
remember how the same foods tasted last year, or are
compared to long-gone great aunt's secret recipe.
Unfortunately, by the time you get around to the
main course, most people are nearly stuffed with
matzah, haroset, maror, bitter herbs, hard-boiled eggs,
gefilte fish, salad, soup and who knows what else (not

If you're an accomplished brisket-making, chicken-

If you're new at the game or are looking for something
special or novel to present at your festive meal, these
recipes may be just what you're looking for.
Two brisket recipes offer options for the novice and
experienced cook alike. Chicken with mushrooms and
almonds is a fresh, make-ahead alternative to tradition-
al roast chicken. Chicken with ameretto uses everyone's
favorite boneless and skinless chicken breasts.
Finally, a rolled, stuffed lamb recipe serves up a tra-
ditional spring favorite with Mediterranean flavor.
