Carrot Kugel

In my estimation, kugels are dishes especially for Yom Tov and Shabbat, regardless of their variety. They are also an excellent way of enticing children to eat vegetables; they taste delicious hot or cold and, of course, can be prepared in advance.   This carrot recipe has a great flavor of cinnamon, lemon juice and nutmeg. Since this recipe freezes well, make double and keep one for another occasion.  It cuts up into squares, which make serving easy. Include them chilled with cold meats or hot for the Friday night or Yom Tov meal.

This colorful Persian Chicken dish with mint, parsley and dried fruit is perfect for Passover as it is easy to prepare and ideal when you have extra guests. As I use the breast of chicken, there is no carving involved and serving is straightforward. The recipe is cooked in a delicious flavored turmeric stock, so should your Seder go on for longer than expected, the chicken will not dry out.
