To me kugel is the ultimate comfort food and to be honest it might be my favorite food. Kugel is a Jewish noodle pudding that sounds interesting when you describe it to someone for the first time, but tastes like a dream. My roommate was even skeptical but after she had a couple bites she understood. I decided to make kugel one weekend when everyone seemed stressed at school. It was the perfect food to give out because it makes people feel warm inside. I took this recipe from one of my favorite blogs, Smitten Kitchen, except I added golden raisins!
