1. Passover Apple Kugel

    Passover Apple Kugel4

    This year my husband and I hosted the cutest seder for a few families and their children. Searching for Passover recipes that are actually tasty for adults and kids can be a bit harder than you would expect, so I began browsing the internet for a Kugel substitute that everyone would enjoy. I stumbled upon a version of below and after baking and serving, I can say it is actually delish! I am not kidding, it doesn’t taste like your usual kosher for passover cakes! Sliced and placed on a cake stand, it’s perfect for a family gathering, or it’s great to serve as a sweet side dish if you are desperately missing carbs this week! Enjoy!

  4. Brown Rice Pilaf with Portobello Mushrooms

    Portabello Mushroom and Brown Rice

    I am always on the hunt for healthy and hearty side dishes that I can whip up alongside one of my weeknight dinners. My husband and I love mushrooms, so when I came across gorgeous fresh Portobello ones at the supermarket, my mind was set to incorporate them. Next, brown rice is filling and minimal work, so added that to the list. And lastly, a random selection of herbs {like scallions and parsley} as well as raisins are something I always have on hand, so I threw them in. Mix them all together, and you have a dish worthy of serving!…
