Passover eBook : MAZON: A Jewish Response to HungerIndividual Potato and Zucchini Kugels
Pareve, Gebrokts

Why are mini things so much better? Cupcakes are better than cake.  Sliders beat out big burgers. And these individual kugels dominate normal big-sized kugels. Plus, there is some zucchini snuck in there for a healthy kick. Sneakiness and mini things are where it’s at. Amy Kritzer

  2. […] Our cookbook is available on Amazon for $7.99. Now through Sunday, March 16th, we are thrilled to offer the book for only $1.99 and half of the profits will go to an amazing organization: Mazon. This non-profit’s mission is to provide for people who are hungry while at the same time advocating for other ways to end hunger and its causes. They also aim to educate and raise the consciousness of the Jewish community regarding its obligation to alleviate hunger and its causes.  And, because they are incredible, they wrote a really lovely blog post about our book.  Check it out here.
