Where has this cookbook been my entire life? Luckily the author -- a descendant of the Streit matzo founder -- came up with dozens of creative Passover recipes. From breakfast treats like blueberry & cheese blintzes made with matzo meal (page 23), to Caesar salad with matzo ball croutons (41), to Moroccan matzo stuffing (57), there are modern classics like matzo brei and new creative recipes. There is a whole chapter with mouthwatering desserts, two words that rarely come to mind at Passover meals! These recipes are so good that they may just find a place at the table after the 8 day holiday is over.

If you remember collecting Green Stamps, watching Lucille Ball, and having a metal milk box on your porch, you will laugh old loud while reading this poignant, illustrated memoir. Kaplan grew up in a Jewish home in NJ, the youngest of three boys. His mother always felt "discombobulated" and nothing was thrown out or replaced. Cheeseits on New Years Eve was exciting! Kaplan loved his parents, but he wasn't close to them nor did he understand them. Television was his passion and Kaplan wanted to climb inside. In a way he did; he became a writer/producer for television shows including HBO's Girls, as well as a cartoonist for the New Yorker. His family story is sometimes funny, sometimes painful, and honest.
