Cooking marathon

Saturday, December 12, 2009

We're having a Chanukah party tomorrow, with about 15-18 people coming over. So I just spent 4 hours making: brownies with choc chips (DH's fave); two coffee cakes, one with choc chips the way DH's mother made, one with just the brown sugar struesel topping like my mom made (both are supposed to be with sour cream, I subbed Greek yogurt); and noodle kugel, again with lower fat dairy products than the usual. Plus I added several apples instead of raisins. And I decreased the sugar in everything.

The house smells fabulous. Tomorrow it will smell even better, when I warm up the kugel and then make the latkes. Which will be served with no-sugar applesauce, and Greek yogurt.

I'm SO hungry. Imagine spending 4 hours cooking for TOMORROW. I don't want to touch any of the food, tomorrow will be enough. But it smells so good.

DH ran out to get Chinese takeout - so I'm trying to be good. But that coffee cake smells wonderful, the cooking kugel smells terrific, and the brownies, well, chocolate is a basic food group that should be eaten every day.

I'm soooooooooooo hungry!

    If you use low-fat (not non-fat) margarine and cream cheese, you can lower the cals. I love rugelach! Probably 100 cals per cookie. Problem is stopping at just 1, right?

    Sounds delicious - I am salivating just reading what you cooked. Only thing I am making is rugelah (my mother-in-law's recipe) - don't even want to know the calories!
