For the Jews of the world, Passover calls for indulging a bit less on a few things we are allowed to enjoy 357 days of the year. Different indulgences abound.
Joking aside the easiest Passover indulgence at our house remains spreading sheets of matzo with Kosher for Passover cream cheese and fruit preserves. Next on the list comes Matzo Brie (a French Toast like concoction of eggs and matza served with pure maple syrup or sour cream and fruit perserves. Then rumor has it you can use matza as a pizza crust. Finally, homemade macaroons work and when all else fails, there is always Kosher for Passover chocolate. See links for recipes.
I grew up during World War II and the days of rationing. My mother used her rationing coupons to buy some Hersey chocolate bars and doled them out a square at a time. “Let it melt in your mouth instead of chewing it. The flavor will last longer.” Mom was right on about that one. Another lesson: A treat ceases to be a treat if consumed too often. A little deprivation makes later indulgences sweeter.
