Mushroom Noodle Latkes

Here is an amazing Hanukkah recipe from Chabad.org.  As you can tell, I love making latkes, and enjoy making latkes out of non-traditional foods, like apple or spinach & feta.  So, I just had to try noodle-based latkes.  And, one or our daughters was going to be home and she loves mushrooms, so this was…

Apple Latkes

Latkes aren’t just for lunch and dinner, we found a fun new way to start our day with latkes – Apple Latkes for breakfast! These latkes by Nigella Lawson are so good that you are going to want them at other times of the year.  Then you can call them apple fritters or apple pancakes….

Golden Latkes with Turmeric

Happy Hanukkah!! Just when you think there can be no other ways to make potato latkes, along comes turmeric.

Sweet Potato Latkes

For anyone who has not had enough sweet potato casserole, here are some latkes that are perfect for you. These sweet potato latkes are less savory than most of the latkes I make, so they are best as a snack or side dish.  We had them with applesauce, but I was really tempted to melt some…

Aunt Gussie’s Rugelach – Memorial Repost

My Aunt Gussie passed away this morning.  In honor of her wonderful life, her warmth, love and good food I am reposting her Rugelach recipe.  I could always show up at her house and be welcomed with a meal.  I think she always cooked extra food, just in case.  Aunt Gussie, you will be missed…

Spinach, Potato & Feta Latkes

Potato Latkes

Happy Hanukkah! As I have mentioned before, I have a tendency to become obsessed with cooking with one food or one type of food.  So, for Hanukkah this year, my focus has become latkes.  I have plans for different types of latkes every day – potato, sweet potato, spinach & feta, carrot & zucchini and…

Mashed Potato Latkes – Thanksgiving Leftovers #2

What to do with leftover mashed potatoes?  Well that is a no-brainer…potato pancakes/latkes!  Making the mashed potato latkes gave me the chance to decide whether I want to do those, or grated potato latkes for our Hanukah party. I like both, so I am still not sure which I will do. We are having an…
