My friend Roz and I often share recipes and menus, especially around the holidays. Though her grandmother is Jewish, Roz was not raised in an entirely Jewish household but she still got to celebrate all the special holidays her grandmother did as well as those from her father’s side of the family. Roz still does but now more in her own way. She like to use her grandmother’s recipes for holiday fare just about anytime and she sometimes shares them with me. This cake recipe is one of her favorites and has become one of mine too.

My mother has made homemade noodles for holidays and celebrations for many years. Prior to the mid-70s, mom usually made dumplings. Some time around 1975, however, she started making homemade egg noodles. The noodles were thick and wide, and a handful filled your belly for hours. Boiled in chicken or turkey broth and served on a heaped platter, these noodles never lasted long enough for leftovers, no matter how large a pot she made.
