When I was kid, I would beg my mom to make latkes. I had no idea these fried potato pancakes had anything to do with Hanukkah. I just knew they were delicious! Deep frying foods in oil is a tradition during The Festival of Lights, but latkes can be enjoyed year round in so many mouthwatering ways - as a base for a perfectly fried egg at breakfast to a side with dinner or as a versatile passed party food. This recipe was passed down through generations to Alonna, one of my editors. While the traditional accompaniments are applesauce and sour cream, I added a modern twist with three new topping ideas.
When you're walking home from work on a beautiful fall evening and you think, "A delicious cappuccino would make my life complete right now." Then you realize it's 5:00 and you're too old for that shit.
