TSJ’s Grandma’s Noodle Kugel

1/2 stick butter
16 oz. wide noodles
6 eggs
24 oz. cottage cheese
24 oz. sour cream
1/2 cup sweet and low
1 can peaches
1 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
A cup of raisins (or more or less if you’d like)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake noodles according to directions. In a large bowl, stir all ingredients together, reserving some peaches for the last step. Incorporate noodles into the mixture and pour into a baking dish. Sprinkle on additional peaches and bake for at least an hour, until the top is crispy and golden. Eat and enjoy with your family!

TSJ’s Savory Cabbage and Onion Noodle Bake Kugel

1 (12 oz.) bag extra broad egg noodles (Original or No Yolk version)
1 (10 oz.) bag shredded red cabbage
3 medium white onions
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
1/4 teaspoon black pepper + one pinch
2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
Table salt for pasta water


Add a few pinches of table salt to a pot of water and bring to a boil. In the meantime, thinly slice onions.Add noodles to boiled water and cook for 10 minutes. I used the cholesterol free No Yolk version. When noodles are ready, transfer them to a large bowl. Drizzle in 2 tablespoons olive oil to prevent pasta from sticking. Toss to coat. Season with 1 teaspoon kosher salt and a pinch of pepper. Pour 3 tablespoons olive oil to a large pan. Add onions. Sautee for about 15 minutes, until tender and golden. Be patient. It’s just starting here, see? A little bit more… Perfect! Push onions to the side of the pan and add cabbage. Mix together and saute for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Season with 1 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Stir well. Transfer cabbage and onions to the noodles. Mix together. Move noodles to an oven safe dish. Bake for about 5-10 minutes until warm. For crispy noodles on top, broil for an additional minute or two.
