The slight nip in the air in the early mornings and evenings is becoming more apparent. Before we know it, we will be welcoming the fall and Yom Tov season pretty much simultaneously. My number one tip for this season? Whatever you are cooking anyway in the coming weeks (Shabbat food or even weeknight dinners), double it. Triple it! You’ll be so relieved when you sit down to make your holiday menu and see that you can check things off without having to give up an entire Sunday for a freezer filling day. 


The collection of apple recipes in this newsletter is both in honor of back to school (teachers, apples, where did that connection start anyway?) and the Rosh Hashanah season that is almost upon us. And remember, think long term when planning your Shabbat menu this week. (I’m looking at you, easiest-thing-to-double-streusel-crumbs!)


Happy Cooking!

Apricot ’n Apple Streusel Kugel by Brynie Greisman

The combo of tart apricots and sweet apples is amazing, and the crumbs are fabulous. This is not as heavy as a noodle kugel and isn’t loaded with oil or sugar either. We love that it tastes equally good served warm, cold, or room temperature.

Fruits crumbles are a classic dish. We’ve come out with a genius method to prevent the crumbs from getting soggy and melting into the fruit. Learn what it is!
