[FHCx119] National Blueberry Pie Day

We’re no strangers to blueberries and

IT’S BLUEBERRY PIE DAY!

But we just can’t have the crust. That’s ok, Manischewitz has us covered since we have a little bit of time left on this Passover holiday.

One thing that’s nice about blueberry pie among all the other fruit pies is that you don’t have to cut up or de-stem or de-pit a bunch of fruit for it. Cherries? Gotta take care of that mess of stems and pits individually. Apples? Gotta peel them and cut them. Blueberries? You can eat them whole. So make some sauce out of ’em. (Okay, yes, sometimes you get blueberries with stems. But most of the time you don’t so shaddap!)

SPom did the honors:

[FHCx116] National Zucchini Bread Day

IT’S NATIONAL ZUCCHINI BREAD DAY!

So how does one make a zucchini bread when bread items are specifically not allowed during Passover? Using the same ingenuity of those who brought us Passover Pancake Mix, we had some Passover Honey Cake Mix. Get a zook, shred it up, and some honey, and we are good to go!

Zucchini itself is a fun squashy vegetable. Without it, we wouldn’t have Ratatouille. Thankfully, someone determined its moisturizing properties – like apple sauce and bananas – that help bake amazing cakes and breads. It’s a great way to make a slightly lighter-calorie cake, and get in those hidden vegetable servings. Just don’t eat too much at once.

This goop will form a breadcake.

A little bit of honey on the top to give it a bit of a crisp coat!

Super tasty! Dense because that’s what Passover mixes are about. It’s hard to tell if something is cooked “correctly” during Passover because they come out squishy. That’s okay.

Tomorrow is National Pretzel Day!
