77. Can you help me?

I am going to a potluck dinner for Thanksgiving, along with my brother and his family who will be visiting. I want to make noodle kugel, but I did not bring the receipe. Does anyone out there have a copy of the first Lubavitch Women's cookbook? It is blue and hardbound. If so, could you post the ingredients for the noodle kugel with fruit in it? (apples and raisins) You don't need to give me the directions, I know that you just cook the noodles, chop the apples, mix it all together and bake. Thanks!!

1 x 8 ounce package medium egg noodles
1/4 cup melted margarine or oil
4 eggs, beaten
3 medium apples
1/4 cup dark seedless raisins
1/4 cup sugar
1 and a half tspns salt
2 tspsns cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla

Cook and drain noodles and put in large bowl. Stir in margarine and eggs.
Peel and chop apples. Rinse raisins in hot water and drain. Combine all ingredients together, add seasoning and mix well.
Preheat oven to 350F. Pour kugel mixture into a greased baking pan 9" x 13". Bake for 40 mins to 1 hour (until lightly browned).
Makes 12 pieces.
Note: for extra softness add another 2 eggs.

Variation: Pineapple Kugel
Replace apples and raisins with one 16 ounce can crushed pineapple. Add an additional 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon.
THANK YOU!!!!!!!

(my own coment: I add some nutmeg and leave out the sugar. I put in the raisine, apples, and pineapple, and double everything else. Also, IMHO, pineapple tidbits works better than crushed pineapple.
In case you want the recipe from Spice and Spirit to compare:

8 ounces medium noodles
1/4 cup oil
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup raisins
4 apples, grated
1 tsp cinnamon*
1 tsp salt

*Even one tespoon cinnamon is still a hell of a lot of cinnamon to dump on eight poor little ounces of noodles. I would suggest half a teaspoon.
Try Alaska Kugel...

same recipe but replace all the fruit with Alaskan salmon. Salmon can be previously grilled or used raw for Alaska Sushi Kugel. Horseradish garnish is optional.
Platotx -

salmon in kugel instead of fruit. uh .... maybe I'll pass on that. (I loved smoked salmon mixed into fettuchini alfredo!!!)

I have had Pacific NW gefilte fish, which is made with salmon instead of carp or whatever.
This has nothing to do with a recipe, just wanted to comment on your blog! Stephen told me about it, he's pretty impressed with what you are doing!

Don't know if you remember me, I'm Karen, we went camping together at Olympic National Park a few years back. I still remember your Elephant Stew poem you read on the beach by the fire.
Karen - Yes, I remember the camping trip. We sat around a campfire at the beach and threw potato chips at the racoons. I remember a campsite with a bunch of trees and someone baking out of a tent. (Ok, that describes every campsite, but I can still picture it.) Thanks for reminding me.
My grandmother, who grew up in Poland, used to make Pacific NW gefilte fish when she visited my aunt in Oregon. She loved it with salmon and I've been tempted to try it one of these days.
