As Yom Kippur approaches, the question of what to make for break fast that's easy and do-ahead is paramount. The break fast meal, whether you have a big party or keep it a simple family affair, is an important part of the Yom Kipp...

Do- Ahead Grilled Corn & Avocado Salad

Do- Ahead Grilled Corn & Avocado Salad

Do- ahead, prep ahead, make in advance... these are the magic phrases when it comes to planning my break fast feast following Yom Kippur. If I have to do more than pull platters from the refrigerator or slip a casserole into the oven, I'm simply not up for it. Along with kugels and bread puddings, smoked f...

Sweet Lokshen Kugel with Plums

Sweet Lokshen Kugel with Plums

If it's unthinkable to imagine your Yom Kippur break fast without Lokshen Kugel (AKA sweet noodle pudding) we're in the same camp. If you haven't had the pleasure of tasting creamy, cheesy, rich casseroles like these, you need to find yourselves some friends in the know.

Caramelized Onion and Poppy Seed Kugel

Caramelized Onion and Poppy Seed Kugel

Quick! Name three quintessentially Jewish foods.  Don’t think too much about it. I bet that kugel is on your short list.

Rugellach: Sweet Treats for the New Year

Rugellach: Sweet Treats for the New Year
