Passover Seder is probably going to be much smaller than previous years, but that doesn’t mean we’re not expected to have it or make our own yummy specialties!

Below is Janice’s favorite matzo kugel recipe.  She recommends doubling it because you need one to eat before the Seder vs serving a half-eaten one!  You make the kugel and we’ll make the desserts. Check them out here.
