Chocolate Haroset TrufflesChocolate Haroset TrufflesMan may not live by bread alone, but I think women could survive solely on chocolate. Let’s face it, ladies, chocolate is our guilty pleasure. We crave it, and sometimes we cannot get enough of it. Eating chocolate can affect our disposition and makes us feel good (albeit temporarily). One reason, scientists believe, is that chocolate increases levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which stimulates feelings of well-being and improved mood in your brain.

As quoted by nutrition researcher Michael Levine in “The Emperors of Chocolate: Inside the Secret World of Hershey and Mars” by Joël Glenn Brenner, “Chemically speaking, chocolate really is the world’s perfect food.”

British neuroscientist Adrian Owen says, “Both smelling and eating chocolate activate areas of the brain that are known to be involved in creating feelings of pleasure. It seems chocolate has a unique blend of sensory qualities which make us feel good, activating pleasure centers in the brain.”

altaltYou’ve done this dozens of times before. You watched your mom and bubbe prepare for Pesach when you were a child. So, chances are you’ve got things covered. But in case you don’t, food writer, lecturer and kosher cooking instructor Joan Kekst has some great ideas to help ease your Passover anxiety. (Unfortunately, she has no advice on how to deal with crazy Uncle Leon!)

Schedule and complete major cooking to freeze. Make extra ice. Purchase vegetable staples, potatoes, onions, carrots, dried fruits, nuts, soda pop. Line storage cabinets and counters; clean refrigerator; reserve area for hametz. Wash Passover pots/pans, dishes, flatware, candlesticks, Seder plate.
