Apple-Carrot Kugel

Sweet, light and flour free. This Apple-Carrot Kugel is perfect for Passover meals or an Easter morning brunch.  Try it for breakfast or with brunch, a side for lunch or dinner or for a light dessert. Golden top, light apple taste—veggie haters will never even know the kugel has any carrots!! You can add chopped nuts or golden raisins.  And, of course, you can lessen the sugar with Stevia, as I do.  Tastes great either way.

Author Holly Bush told me, “Almost all of my books begin with a person traveling to a new place. It doesn’t really matter, I don’t think, whether you are going from farm to city or from city to farm. Those kind of lifestyle changes could be just as dramatic then as they can be today. New people and habits and sometimes a new way of looking at things can be the making of us. It was the making of Olive.”

Strong men and women, romance and heartbreak make Romancing Olive a frontier novel worth reading.

Olive's Peach Cobbler is the  perfect recipe for this frontier romance.
