Though I have been participating in the Secret Recipe Club link up for a few years now, I always have a unique experience every month. Each blog has something special to discover and most of all I have had the opportunity to try a great variety of recipes I might have not otherwise. So before I go on to this months recipe, a big thank you to those who have made this club possible.
This time I was assigned Dena's blog Oh You Cook! Sometime ago Dena had my blog and she prepared my bread pudding with Challah! She has a fantastic collection of kosher recipes. I jumped on to Potato Latkes for 2 reasons. 1. I ve always been wanting to try them. 2. I had recently harvested home grown potatoes. What better way to celebrate your harvest!
It was very easy to prepare and I stuck to the original recipe. However I had one big problem. I had to really resist the temptation to eat them while I was frying them. Had to constantly remind myself that I needed to take a picture and I couldn't polish them off before that. But I just about managed to click a couple of pictures with no additional accessories and I couldn't hold back any longer!
Please visit Dena's blog for the recipes and tips and for more kosher recipes!
Love Potato Latkes, or pancakes, or gallettes...kind of like dumplings....every culture has just a slightly different version.ReplyDelete
I would have a tough time waiting to photograph these babies too! Great pick this month.ReplyDelete
Yumm!! What a great pick this month - I've never made potato latkes and need to give those a try! :)ReplyDelete
Looks great! Latkes have been on my list for a while now, but I still haven't made them. Definitely need to change that!ReplyDelete
Nice job on my recipe! One day I'll have to try to grow potatoes. Right now I have one sad-looking sweet potato plant in the middle of my herb garden ... an anonymous animal dug out the plant from its original spot and left some pieces under the sage plant where it managed to reroot itself.ReplyDelete
Perfect timing on the latkes, and you GREW THE POTATOES YOURSELF? Simply awesome!ReplyDelete
Me too, always wanted to try and make latkes, but never did.... I had them at friends' homes, and once or twice in restaurants, always so tastyReplyDelete
These look soooo yummy! Perfectly browned and crispy!!ReplyDelete
