    Myra was an observant Jew, so there's a lot of tweaked traditional
    recipes, too, though I don't know if she kept kosher...

    here's one:

    MYRA'S FAUXTATO KUGEL

    1 large head cauliflower
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter OR a 1/2 cup schmaltz
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    4 eggs, beaten

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 2-quart casserole dish with
    butter or spray.

    Break the cauliflower into flowerets, and wash thoroughly. Cook - by
    boiling, steaming or microwaving - until just done, but not too soft.
    In a food processor, process the cooked cauliflower until it resembles
    grated potatoes - do it in batches if your processor isn't large
    enough. Transfer to a large bowl.

    In a skillet, melt 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter, then add the onion
    and saute until the onion is golden brown. When done, add the
    onion/butter mixture to the cauliflower, along with the salt and
    pepper. Let cool for a few minutes, then add the beaten eggs, mixing
    thoroughly.

    Pour into the casserole dish and smooth the top. Melt the remaining 2
    tablespoons butter and pour over the top of the mixture. Bake,
    uncovered, for about 40-50 minutes, or until the top is golden brown
    and crisp. Serve hot.

    Makes 6 servings. Each serving is 227.45 calories, 19 grams fat (10.67
    saturated, 1.18 polyunsaturated, 5.72 monounsaturated), 9.35 grams
    carbs with 3.83 grams fiber, for a net carb count of 5.52 carbs, and
    7.29 grams of protein.

    NOTE: If you make it with butter, you can serve it with sour cream
    dolloped on the top, which is extra yummy.

    NOTE 2: You can also use this mixture to make "fauxtato" latkes - just
    melt some butter (or use oil) in a skillet, and fry up heaping
    tablespoons of the mixture, browning on both sides. I don't know how
    many latkes this will make, but it should make quite a few.

    Also, most of Myra's recipes are here, plus a lot of other good low carb
    recipes. Myra's have her name, such as Myra's New York Cheesecake etc.

    I was going to send Wendy there, but only found one with Myra's name in
    the sweets listing, so didn't.

    But I'd forgotten about her savory stuff, and so many Jewish traditional
    recipes.

    Her cheesecake is good, but without a recipe, mine is just as good...

    Myra was very serious and methodical and detailed; she really
    experimented and modified her recipes in a professional way before sharing.

    Taking another look there, I'm not sure that some of her recipes weren't
    removed, or...they're in a large folder I have printed out during the years
    when she was posting often on ASDLC. At any rate, she did post many great
    recipes. I'll have to go through the folder and see what's there.

    I don't know if Raley's Supermarket or Bel Air is native to CA, and not in
    your area, but they always have it for around 2.50 a bag.

    I don't believe Sam's carries it. One of the local supermarkets has a
    bulk foods aisle and I can find it there. Health food stores where they
    sell bulk foods is also a good place to get it.

    Largely because most other cultures had lard, but pork is forbidden for
    Jews, so they used the fat of the poultry, ducks, geese, chicken, as their
    cooking fat.

    makes sense..thanks!

    mmmm...duck fat...

    as a side note I understand the logic of faith rules on eating etc because
    when they were written they fully made sense..but do not today

    back then people were loosely organized and if bob sad eww don’t eat that
    pig its gross nobody would listen and get sick but if bob said GOD says don’t
    do that gross thing they'd listen so makes sense..

    for example back then pigs were wild and ate garbage and the dead bodies
    outside of town so gross!..don’t eat..they were full of diseases and
    again..the dead bodies thing.

    same with shell fish..water was often polluted where they lived such as the
    streams where they disposed of the towns waste..so gross..don’t eat.
    it seems to ignore the fact many fish are also bottom feeders but they didn’t
    have view of them such as an American catfish.

    so it would seem to me that as times changed and pigs were no longer eating
    our dead (and I truly doubt goats in the wilds were any better). and
    shellfish can be grown in clean environments that the rules should be
    changed to fit OUR times.


    its like my church banning disco or as the old elder called it DYYASKO and
    were we all wondering what the heck he was talking about..especially since
    it was 1985..lol

    I'm not bashing anyone's faith ..just flapping my gums with thoughts
    floating about my cranium..ignore it at will..lol

    The laws of kashrut are not health laws, goodness knows one can easily
    over carb or whatevver on a kosher diet:-) The are laws that the Jews
    accepted as coming from God and they are not changedby modern health
    information. They are a question of faith which , as a Jew, you accept or
    not. There is no particular reason to have to eat a ham sandwich, bacon
    with your eggs or shrimp creole. They are available food that many peole
    like. Choosing not to eat this things for a relgious reason tht goes way
    back in time is a choice that Jews make to be part of the religion as
    passed down through the millenia. Dicso is a new (reletively) dance type
    that many regard as quite sexy. Everyone, including a relgious leader can
    be uncomfortable about it and think that it doesn't belong in a church.
    It is not an original law, but a descision on a moderm practice . Some
    Jews have "modernized" the rules for themselves or their denomination, but
    many have not and wish to continue to follow the law as it has been
    passeed down to them.

    By the way, there is no reason you can't use schmaltz if you want.
