“This is the kugel my mother made every Friday night when I was growing up, adapted from my great-grandmother's recipe. It's not the dairy overload of most kugels and, made with margarine, can be served with a kosher meat meal. Note that it's a main course side dish, even though it looks very sweet. You can use other fruit/spice combos like pear, plums or peaches with ginger.”
