PAGE 24A HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, SEPTEMBER 19, 2014 ber salad own cream cheese By Shannon Sarna ( on Yom Kippur is one of my least favorite parts of being Jewish. I recognize the value of reflective fasfiffg, and l(kriow some people even enjoy the fast day, but for me it is a torturous 25 hours until I can break into the bagels andkugel. The last thing anyone wants to do after fasting and sitting in synagogue is to start cooking and prepping a complicated or heavy f- .'t di meal. The dishes I like to serve for Yom Kippur can all be made in advance--in fact, they are better when prepared well ahead of time. And not just for the sake of your sanity. A quick pickled cucumber salad is a standard in my home and a dish I learned to make from my grandmother. It's slightly sweet, just a tad spicy, and the crunch of the cucumber-is really satisfying next to a bagel schmeared with cream cheese. You need to make this recipe ahead of time to properly allow the cucumber to absorb the flavors. Anyone can break open a tub of cream cheese for a break-fast. But if you make your own custom cream cheese flavor--like the Chipotle Cream Cheese Spread below--your family and guests will think you spent hours and hours in the kitchen. Making your own cream cheese is very easy and a fun way to take the spread up a notch. If butternut squash kugel and a coffee cake had a baby, the Cakey Crunch Sweet Potato Kugel below would be the result. It is absolutely delicious, but I make sure to warn people: It's highly addictive, you won't be able to eat just one portion.
