So not only will I share with you my family’s recipe, but also two others that I have used and adopted into my own. It is the sweet New Year, after all. I can’t imagine a sweeter treat than sharing a delectable dish with you. 🙂
I should mention two things. One, noodle kugel is great any day of the year. It doesn’t have to be Rosh Hashanah. Two, under no circumstances do you have to be Jewish in order to indulge in this tasty treat. Lots of other religions and cultures eat kugel. We just happen to be very good at making cinnamon-raisin noodle kugel for holidays!
