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!

    Passover Apple Kugel {makes one loaf}:

I swapped out the usual heavier ingredients for low-fat cream cheese and skim milk, and seriously it still has all the same delicious flavors! So whether you are hosting Channukah at home for friends or you are planning to head to a dinner party to celebrate, this is the perfect dish to make! Happy Noshing {on something with a tad less guilt than usual!}.
