Some Dishes for Rosh Hashanna but you don’t have to be Jewish to make & love these recipes!

The dishes I am posting here are just so good! And, as the title of this post says you don’t; have to Jewish to enjoy them! The recipes I have included in this post are: Gefilte Fish in the Instant Pot, Chicken Soup in the Instant Pot, Sweet Noodle Kugel with Apples & Raisins, Sweet & Sour Baked Eggplant, Butternut Squash Kugel, Sweet Potato in Orange Sauce Casserole

I will post some dessert ideas in another post!!

There are a couple recipes that use the Instant Pot, if you do not have one you can make the Gefiltel Fish on the stove ( use the package instructions ) & the Chicken Soup can also be made on the stove… the times will be different.. the soup will take longer on the stove as will the fish!

Gefilte Fish in the Instant Pot

I have been making gefilte fish from scratch for years, but only make it twice a year. Rarely do I buy the pre-made frozen logs, though I like to have one on hand in the freezer “just In case”.

Butternut Squash Kugel

What is a kugel? It is a baked kind of pudding…it can be noodles, potatoes, butternut squash….the main ingredient of a kugel is sometimes pre-cooked…mashed…grated… eggs are added ….put it into a baking dish & you have a kugel!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
