Warm spices and a sweet-and-sour sauce intensify the flavour of chicken.

Rib Roast With Garlic Horseradish Crust
This piquant coating penetrates the beef, adding incredible flavour. You can use prepared horseradish or purchase a small piece of fresh horseradish root from the market.

Dairy-Free Gluten-Free Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes
Decadent little chocolate cakes with rich molten cores are enough to make any meal special. The batter for this dessert can be prepared ahead, but the cakes are best eaten immediately after baking, so don't put them into the oven until your guests are ready for dessert. (See the how-to video for these cakes at the bottom of the page.)

Coconut Macaroons
Macaroons — coconut, chocolate or almond — are a Passover tradition and appear at the end of the Seder with coffee and tea.

Passover Chocolate Mousse Cake
This layered chocolate cake can be made especially for Passover with potato flour. Garnish with red currants, red or golden raspberries, quartered strawberries or cape gooseberries.

Passover Chocolate Cake With Brandied Fruit
Prunes and raisins cooked in brandy add flavour and moisture to this dark, dense and delicious pareve (nondairy) Passover dessert.

Passover Sunshine Cake
Sunshine cake, really angel food cake made with whole eggs, is relatively obscure despite being around for more than a century. However, with its light moist texture, golden colour and citrus flavour, it makes an ideal Passover dessert using kosher-for-Passover ingredients
