Yummy but ugly



click me!

One of my all time favorite casseroles, posted by request for our shabbat guests this week. I can’t believe I didn’t take a picture, to prove how unappealing it looks. But….YUM. And while it has more prepared products in one dish than I usually use in an entire week, it’s also the kind of entree you can throw together when you get home from work at 4 and shabbat starts at 5:30…..


My favorite part is the hominy. It makes me think of Jackie Gleason every time I say it.

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 ...
