  1. Purim Roast by Brynie Greisman
    Exquisitely simple. Exceptionally soft and savory. Welcome your new roast! There’s no specific dominating flavor profile here. You won’t taste the smoked paprika or the wine. All the ingredients blend together harmoniously to give you the softest, most delicious meat ever.
  2. Pretzel Chicken Salad by Faigy Murray
    By the time the seudah comes around on Purim, everyone is hungry. I always like to make a big salad for the seudah, so I know there will be a healthy and filling option available.
  3. Pulled Beef Flatbread by Elizabeth Kurtz
    Use all store-bought ingredients (or just some) for this delicious, keep-it-simple recipe. The amazing part is that it looks so complicated and on-trend (everything on a pizza crust is good!). Any store-bought flatbread or prepared pizza crust works. If I cannot find any of those, I buy store-bought pizza dough, roll it into a 13- x 18-inch rectangle, and press into a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 400-degree-Fahrenheit oven for about seven minutes.
  4. Too Good! Deli Salad by Faigy Grossman
    I created this salad with the idea that it would be a nice Purim seudah salad to serve with the main course. Once I plated it (and ended up eating the whole thing up!), I realized that it also makes a gorgeous appetizer, so it’s your choice when to use it. What’s amazing (besides the incredible taste) is how simple it is to prepare — you can really pull the whole thing together in minutes!
  5. Skirt Steak Appetizer by Faigy Grossman
    I first attempted this recipe using a less pricey cut of meat, but it didn’t quite make the grade. With skirt steak, the end results were exactly what I was hoping for: a delightful mouthful of sweet and savory goodness, just right for the Purim seudah. Since you get ten portions from just one pound of meat, I decided to go ahead with this version.
  6. Brisket Hamantashen by Nelly Weissman
    Brisket Hamantaschen? Yes please!
  7. Turkey Strips with Double Dipping Sauce by Brynie Greisman
    I often include turkey in my menu as a welcome change from chicken or meat. It’s high in protein and lean in fat. Smothering it in spices and letting it sit for a few hours seasons it to perfection. This also ensures a moist and flavorful dish that everyone will enjoy. Serve with two sauces for a real treat. This dish can be used as an appetizer or a second/third choice main dish for a festive meal.
  8. BBQ Meatball Tarts by Miriam (Pascal) Cohen
    Who knew that a comfort-food staple like meatballs could become such a pretty and delicious appetizer? Whether they’re served at a buffet, kiddush, or party, or you plate them at your seudah, these tiny tarts are a guaranteed crowd-pleaser!
  9. Hawaiian Style Fried Rice and Cabbage by Estelle Chait
    One-pan rice and salami with veggies and fried egg – Hawaiian style. Black soy sauce adds a darker colour and a bit of sweetness to the rice. If you don’t have it you can use another dash of regular soy sauce.
  10. Salami & Spinach Quiche by Shulamith Betesh
    Perfect for a party and only takes 30 minutes to make!


  11. Hamantaschen, Champagne, and Strawberry Trifle by Elizabeth Kurtz
    Champagne is celebratory and festive and the perfect flavoring for this exceptionally special dessert. I use the assorted fruit hamantaschen that are left over from every school party and mishloach manot in this recipe. Trust me, this takes them to a new level! You can also use chocolate and poppy seed flavors in this trifle. Add any fun ingredient you have in your pantry for layering, like crumbled chocolate sandwich cookies, chocolate chips or toasted coconut. This keeps well in the refrigerator for a few hours and up to overnight.
  12. Caramel Cheesecake Hamantaschen by Faigy Grossmann
    Purim is coming, and — following our age-old tradition — we will be eating hamantaschen. Now, while hamantaschen have not gone out of style, prune and poppy filling just may have. Today you can find hamantaschen in more flavors than Baskin-Robbins’ ice cream! If there’s a flavor you can dream of, you can make it. Every successful hamantasch starts with a good cookie dough base. What’s so great about this one is that all it needs is a bowl and a spoon. For your fillings — use your imagination!
  13. Apple Dump Cake by Michal Frischman
    This recent viral trend seems to have been started by the Pioneer Woman, and is a crazy easy concept to make your own. If you’re looking for healthier desserts, keep on moving. 🙂
  14. Fabulous Mask Cookies by Shena Dominitz
    Its time to get creative and bring the kids into the fun! These beauties will impress everyone from family to guests. It is a wonderful Mishloach Manot addition, and the receiver will be talking about this unique cookie until Pesach! Break out the party!
  15. Lemon Blueberry Hamentaschen by Erin Grunstein
    Delicious, parve, no margarine, and no refrigerating dough – what more can you ask for!
  16. Fancy Chocolate Peanut Chews from the Nitra Cookbook
    Peanut chews are sweet table staples at pretty much any event, a good recipe to keep on hand (or memorize, you’ll be making them so often). They can be made gluten-free as well, so everyone can enjoy them. The decorative chocolate technique suggested here is simple to execute and looks very pretty.
  17. Chocolate Liqueur Pudding Cups by Naami Jearolmen
    Watch this pudding disappear faster than you made it! This dessert can be frozen and served as a delicious frozen treat as well. Heaven!
  18. Cinnamon Palmiers by Paula Shoyer
    A classic cookie that you can make super-duper easy by using store-bought puff pastry.
