Make pita
Now to make pita with Zaatar,
mix a half a cup of olive oil with and half a cup of zaatar, brush on pita and bake 10 minutes at 400 degrees. keep checking to make sure it doesn't burn.
Or cut leftover pita in strips and brush with olive oil and zaatar.
bake in oven and get chips.

or like in Israel, on top of a tomato and cucumber salad, yogurt and zaatar

Hope this helps........

what kind of knives do you have and how do you sharpen them ?

I only use my chef's knife, a Wusthoff . Every chef I know taught me that you really only need one knife. I love it so much. Scary to use a chef's knife in the beginning but once you learn how, there is no turning back,

Sandra Lee

Everyone is just being plain snobby. I hate her cooking. It makes me want to vomit, but hey...that is because I like cooking and taking my time. I know a lot of people who hate cooking and Sandra Lee is a good solution for those people. It's better than buying everything ready made. Trust me sometimes when I look in people's carts ate walmart, I feel sick when I see the things that you can actually buy ready made.

How far do you go on Passover?

As for as I go, will eat kosher on Seder night. That's about it. In Tel aviv, you can get pitas on passover and when I was in the Israeli Army, we snuck pitas into our rooms on Passover. A lot of Israeli's are way less observant than the Jews in America, the reason for this. Some just don't feel the need to prove they are Jewish.They just are.
One thing that we always do for Passover is make sure that we have some people who are not Jewish at the Seder. That is the most fun. Everyone should come to the seder, last year my friend who is Greek came and my friend who is filipino. Then we celebrated Greek Easter a week later. Passover is about bringing people together to celebrate a Jewish holiday, regardless of race.
