Slow Cooker Unstuffed Cabbage

Stuffed Cabbage rolls are a family favorite for special occasion holidays, but who has time on a weeknight to roll out each cabbage roll? My mother, who worked full time and had to get dinner on the table, used to make unstuffed cabbage for us to satisfy our desire to have this delicious meal more frequently. This meal has all of the essential ingredients and flavors of stuffed cabbage – a sweet and tangy sauce, rice, beef, raisins -yet you can put this recipe together in no time, and work while it cooks!

Sweet Noodle (Lokshen) Kugel

This is a great sweet treat for the Jewish food lovers out there. This version of lokshen kugel combines a sweet and cinnamon-y custard with raisins and noodles that bake up together for a cheesey and chewy bite. Even though it tastes like dessert, this is traditionally served as a main course – so enjoy! If you want to get in your greens, try serving this alongside my salad of mixed greens with roasted pears and spiced nuts.
