Food gifts and Noodle Kugel

The first homemade gift of the year is completed. For my Dad's birthday I have made one of his favourite sweets - Turkish Delight. I've never really liked it but have taste tested it and it seems to have come out okay so it's wrapped and ready to be given as a gift now.

Homemade Turkish Delight

Cut into squares and dusted
with confectioners sugar

For tea I have baked Savoury Noodle Kugel - a Jewish recipe from a favourite recipe book. I haven't made this for a long time but have been thinking about it over the last week or so. I actually made this yesterday and there was enough for last night and tonight again. Very simple and rich in flavour. Yum.

Alex mentioned this on facebook last night and an old friend was asking about it. He then found there were Noodle Kugel groups on there - I find it bizarre what groups you can find on there sometimes. Right, off to saute some vegetables to go with this dish tonight.


  1. Mmm I love turkish delight too - however I won't ask for the receipe but if I can make it myself I'll end up literally the size of a house lol.


    Looks lovely, the Krugel looks yummy too. And yeah aren't there some bizarre and just plain daft group son facebook.

  2. Wow, that looks very professional xx

  3. oohh that turkish delight looks fab - was it hard to make? My Dad also loves the stuff :-)

  4. Hi Scented Sweetpeas - it was quite easy to make and just needs 24 hours to chill/set.


Don't be shy, come and say hello. Your thoughts are always appreciated, I read them all and will endeavour to respond. Thank you x
