Chicago/San Diego Mrs. S Noodle Kugel
Tuesday, December 4, 2007
Happy Hanukkah! I decided to start those eight crazy nights with a Noodle Kugel. This recipe is from Mrs. S of San Diego. The S Family is originally from Chicago so that makes this a Chicago/San Diego family recipe. (Mrs. S and I made the Chocolate Corks earlier in the year). A couple years ago, Mrs. S showed me how to make kugel and Matzo ball soup! Yum!
You can make Kugels with all types of ingredients, including apples and raisins. This one is all dairy, all the time.
