“Now that I'm back in Australia, I really miss the yummy Jewish food I used to eat at The Bagel in Chicago. I looked on 'Zaar for a Kreplach recipe & my search didn't give me anything. I looked on the Net & this is what I found. It sounds authentic... I'll post any comments once I make it. The prep time is approximate. Note: instead of making noodles from scratch, buy Won-Ton skins”
