Foodie Friday: Lotsa Latkes

Hanukkah is over tonight, which means that I won’t be seeing any more of these dangerous little suckers for another year. My waistline (what’s left of it) and cholesterol level are both thankful. I didn’t make the latkes this year, which was nice. Instead, my mother-in-law prepared these while the Dude took pictures.  What did I do? Nothing but eat.  That was the best present of all.

My mother-in-law makes the best latkes.

Almost Done...

Perfection. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I like mine with applesauce.

Did you miss my latke recipe from last week? Check here.  Also, if you’re looking for a healthier/different version of latkes, try this zucchini latke recipe or this sweet potato/zucchini latke recipe from Esther Weiner for the Food Network kitchen.  Both are delicious.

Hope all my fellow Members of the Tribe (MOT) had a wonderful Hanukkah!


Please note that Foodie Friday will not be back until January 8th.  Happy Holidays!
