I, too, have made a kugel from the recipe Tod recounts, which was reverse-engineered by Tod's sister Linda. I can attest it is utterly delicious, and packed with 98% more memories than the average noodle dessert.
"Nana died a few weeks ago at the age of 95 and in her honor I came home from the funeral and made myself a kugel. It tasted like being seven and losing a soccer game; like being twelve and dining as the sun set over Loon Lake, Washington; like being thirty and sitting on her porch in Seattle; like being all the ages I’ve ever been."
