In case you didn’t notice, we are officially moved over to my new site! You may want to double check that your feed or email subscription are coming from the right place. Please let me know if you are having any problems as we are still working out some glitches… which may include disappearing recipes.
I am a little bit all over the place this week! Monday’s post never happened and it is a small miracle I’m getting this one up today. The new website launched Sunday afternoon and I’m already busy fulfilling orders like a mad woman. It looks like next week I’ll be up to my eyeballs in matzo! While the first influx of orders seemed overwhelming at first, once I took a step back and got organized with lists and spreadsheets I felt a lot better. That really has been the key for me working from home this last week and a half… lots of lists and very specific daily schedules.
Some of you commented that you were interested in hearing about the business so I’ll definitely give you some updates on how things are going and how life has changed. For one thing, I think my blog post regularity might come in waves. Whenever I have some KISD downtime, I work on the blog… but sometimes there is none. I’ll do my best to keep the new recipes coming, though! And be on the lookout for special discounts or giveaways in upcoming posts.
Next week Passover starts and for those of you who don’t know, it means 8 days without bread, or really anything with leavening… plus a whole list of surprising rules like no peanuts or chick peas (depending on your sect). Let’s just say I follow the holiday to the best of my ability. My biggest Passover pet-peeve, though, is the recreation of foods that just aren’t meant to be made without flour, especially when it comes to dessert. Trust me, a kosher-for-Passover chocolate chip cookie is jut not going to be very good. So as a result, I’ve made some recipes that lend themselves to being Passover friendly without even trying:
Flourless Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies
Low Fat Banana Cheesecake with Almond Crust with Mixed Berry Sauce
Those are so wonderful choices.
I hope you are able to enjoy at least one of them :)
The new site looks fantastic and I look forward to business updates!
Oh my lands, Lauren! The new site looks FABULOUS!!! Congrats! :) :) :)
Love the Passover ideas. I’ve been interested in Passover desserts ever since I started seeing them in Food&Wine a few years ago. They all sound so delicious, not at all like you’re eating a restricted diet.
The new site looks so great!! I’m excited to hear updates on KISD as everything keeps moving forward. :)
Thank you so much, Tara!
Your new site is GORGEOUS, Lauren! CONGRATS!!!!!
Awesome!! My husband is jewish, and we will be going to his family for Passover, I was looking to make something sweet! Thanks for the recipe! :) I know it will be a hit!
