A bite-sized fiesta in fritter form. Like a pinata for your mouth.
Every family has their own latka recipe; I’m partial to ours, and I think it’s the best (really, because it is). Shredding the potatoes, which do not need to be peeled, creates a latka that is lacy with crispy, irregular edges. You may make the latkas ahead of time and reheat in the oven, but they will not be as crispy as when originally fried.
It’s not really Christmas without it or the non-alcoholic version (posted also).
My family has made Orange Julius forever, before I even knew there was a store. When I finally tried one from the store, I was disappointed because ours was so much better. I was actually offended when I made some for friends we had over and one commented it tasted just like what you get from the store. Here’s mine.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
