Passover is one of my favorite holidays, but the prep for it is harder than the reward. Eat out instead. Mity Nice Grill in Water Tower Place offers a family-style Passover dinner you won't forget. $36.95 adult, $16.95 kids 12 and under.
If you must cook at home, plan on something to entertain the youngsters when they've tired of the long Seder. Temple Sholom's gift shop offers goodies like a kiddie Seder set and a DVD of "Shalom Sesame: It's Passover, Grover!"
