Potato Pancakes (or Latkes):
Everyone has their own idea about what makes a good Latke and how best to cook it. Some people are butter advocates, whereas others only cook in oil. Some use russet potatoes, and others throw in some zucchini and maybe a parsnip. One thing I have found is that experimentation is worth the effort. Here is a somewhat highly unorthodox Pumpkin Latke recipe (courtesy of Serious Eats) that promises to raise some interest around the dinner table (click here for link)

The Sufganiyots do look mouth-watering, but I know I am not going to try making them. We try to stay away from fried food as much as possible.
