With Amazon Prime, I feel like everytime I get a package it feels like Amazon sends me a present. I wait patiently for Fedex or USPS and rush to open the packages each time! Like a bow ready to be untied, those prime stickers all over the boxes get me every time.
Yesterday I got this lovely 3 Sprouts Toy Chest with a beautiful elephant on it. It’s grey with white stripes and the chest itself is tan.
For $24.99, It’s so cute! I feel like it really makes the room come together and is a stand-out piece. I wanted a place to store his accumulating books and toys for our living room and this was perfect and whimsical.
I can’t wait to see my little Jacob climbing in and getting his toys out of it!
Nothing like oooey gooey noodle kugel around the holidays. It’s the sweet to the ohh so savory. Despite my pan overflowing (because I used a pan that was too small!) this recipe is on point. Try it out – this recipe is all the rage…
Sweet Noodle Kugel
(adapted from Fork-Lore)
12 oz package of Pennsylvania dutch egg noodles (or any broad egg noodle)
1 stick of butter, softened and cubed for noodles to prevent sticking
6 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup sugar
1 3/4 cups of milk (I used 2%)
16 oz container of low-fat cottage cheese
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup of white/golden raisins
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup of crushed corn flakes
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Pour boiling water over raisins to plump them up a little. Let them sit for 10 min or so and drain. Prepare noodles according to package – don’t overcook! Drain and mix butter into noodles. Pour into a buttered 9×13 inch pan. Meanwhile in a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, milk, cottage cheese, and vanilla. Use a hand mixer or kitchen aid to mix well. Add raisins and combine. Pour over noodles and use a spoon to combine everything well. Finally for the topping, in a ziplock bag mash the corn flakes until small, add sugar and cinnamon into the ziplock and shake to mix. Sprinkle over the top of the noodles and bake at 350 for about 1 hour or when you see the inside firm up. Serve warm (my preference) or cold and enjoy!
