Cottage Cheese & Pineapple Kugel (Passover)

We love to have this Cottage Cheese & Pineapple Kugel in the fridge during Passover. It wakes a delicious lunch or side dish.

The recipe is from a cookbook I have had for many years. California Kosher published in 1991. My sister gave this to me & I use many recipes from it. The book is a collection of recipes from the Woman’s League of Adat Ari El Synagogue in North Hollywood California. This recipe was contributed to the book by Alice Greenfield. I have changed a few ingredients from the original recipe. The recipe here the way I make this dish

This is delicious served with sour cream or yoghurt or plain is great too!

The recipe is simple to prepare. Cottage cheese seems to be having a bit of a comeback right now so this is a good time to post this!

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!
