This flavor lineup is unbeatable, and makes such a strong statement you have nothing more to do than to bring all ingredients to a boil, and blend. Be sure to use pumpkin puree, NOT pumpkin pie mix or goodness knows what other processed calamity! You might even consider making it...

In my native Morocco this is often breakfast. It takes minutes from beginning to end, costs pennies, and it is so satisfying. I have whipped it up countless times when I needed to round out a meal in a jiffy. You can save even more time by grinding the garlic...

What’s going on, have I lost my head? Who needs a cold kugel recipe? Who would even give cold kugel the right time of day? Or was I just playing with alliteration (Cape Cold Cold Kugel: Does sound catchy!)? Seriously: All of us harried people racking their brains about how...
