Look no further (or is it farther?)

Are you looking for a wonderful apple cake recipe? I was going to post my mom’s, but it turns out that smitten kitchen and I have the same mom. Or at least the same recipe. Her write-up is a lot better than mine would be. I mean, just look at it:cake
It’s not burnt at all. So, just go there. Here‘s the link. We don’t use walnuts, and we slice our apples, not chunk them, but who am I to quibble with smitten kitchen? This cake is unbelievable.

It’s also posted on ModernJewishMom. Apparently, this recipe really made the rounds 40-50 years ago.

Hi Amy,
I am spreading the gospel of your easiest-ever-noodle kugel. I added some dried cherries and took it to a Shabbat dinner and people thought it was the best kugel they’d ever eaten!
Hope you are doing well with the new job and such. Shanna Tova.

Teaching the Four Questions to young children
One of the greatest privileges of being a kindergarten teacher in a Jewish day school is having the opportunity to teach children to recite the four questions. Unlike almost anything else I teach them about Jewish ritual, this is "real work." ...

Guess what's Kosher for Passover (this will change your life.)
I'm not exaggerating. The bane of my Passover existence has been pareve baking. I cook a lot more meat during the holiday than I do the rest of the year, which means a lot more pareve desserts. Which has, up until now, usually meant margarine ...

Why I love the New American Haggadah (and it's not just because I got to have a martini with Nathan Englander.)
I'm not a haggadah junkie. I know many Jews whose shelves are overflowing with numerous versions of the Haggadah - from the traditional Maxwell House to the not-so-traditional Santa Cruz - and whose seders are an amalgam of commentaries, poems, ...
