Spatchcocking or flattening poultry is a classic technique commonly used by chefs. This method of removing the backbone from chickens, turkeys and other poultry prior to roasting or grilling allows for juicier and faster cooking. And, it's easy to do with a good pair of kitchen shears.  If you don't already have a pair, get the Wusthof Gourmet 2-Piece Cutlery Utility Set.

The Shabbos after Passover has a traditional special challah – the Shlissel Challah – "key in the challah". Watch Renee Chernin, The Kosher Channel.com, demonstrate how to make this unique challah.

What is Shlissel Challah?
"Shlissel or Key Challah, makes the first challah after Pesach even more special. This is a well observed custom you might want to try for yourself. You can do this by slipping a key directly in the challah, by baking it in the dough or placing it in the braids as you shape. Many even shape their challah to look like a key. Shlissel Challah is a segula, good omen, for parnassa, or livelihood. It's a very interesting custom with many sources and traditions." source: The Kosher Channel.com.
