Perfect Baked Potatoes (Dairy)
We used to prepare baked potatoes in the microwave. But we’ve discovered that baked potatoes are much tastier when slowly baked in the oven. Simply, wash and dry, puncture with a fork, rub olive oil and salt all around, and slowly bake in the oven. Serve with a green salad for a lite, but satiating meal.

Adina's Sweet Potatoes (Parve, Passover)
This is a delicious, sweet, parve side dish to serve on Passover. Adina's Sweet Potatoes are also easy to make. I cut the potatoes, and my kids mix the sauce and pour it over the potatoes. After baking the potatoes, we all enjoy eating them together, usually with chicken or turkey.

Now you can enjoy a kosher Thanksgiving meal with traditional turkey and non-dairy mashed potatoes.
