Couscous Pudding with Caramelized Pecans
We really love rice pudding, but were out of rice so I decided to substitute couscous and it came out great.
Acini di Pepe Salad
Acini di pepe is the Italian word for peppercorns. Any tiny round-shaped pasta works well in this chilled fruit salad. Great in the summer, but my family asks for it every holiday. Every time I bring this to a party I get requests for the recipe.
Microwave Apple Kugel
My grandmother made this dish for every family gathering. My Jewish grandfather insisted it tasted just like how his mother use to make it. Not only was it good as a side dish, but it's excellent as a morning treat or dessert.
Frog Eye Salad
An acini di pepe (or couscous) pasta salad with coconut, pineapple, Mandarin oranges, and marshmallows.
The Best Ever Classic Jewish Noodle Kugel
This is the classic noodle kugel that my mom always made for Shabbat dinner. It is incredibly easy to make and tastes so good!
Simple and delicious ...more like candy. Peanuts work well in place of the cashews or try a combination of both!
Jelly Bean Nests
Crunchy Chinese noodles and melted marshmallows make the cutest little nests for your jelly beans. Great as place markers at Easter dinner.
Cat Poop Cookies II
These showstoppers are great at parties. For added effect, mix in coconut (tapeworms) ramen noodles (roundworms), or peanuts. You can also coat the scoop with melted chocolate for a startling effect.
Holiday Ambrosia Salad
My Mom would make this every Thanksgiving and Christmas, and it has been a family favorite for three generations. The dressing is gently cooked, and the salad so light you can serve it anytime.
