Pancakes appear in almost every culture and when they appear take on some of the flavor of the lands in which they originate. Some of my favorite pancakes are latkes. Latke is the Yiddish word for pancake. They are traditionally eaten by Ashenazik Jews on Chanukkah to remember the miracle of the oil (what better than fried foods?) Sephardic and Mizrakhi Jews eat a variety of foods including Sufganiot which are a type of Jelly donut. I love pancakes, latkes, and sufganiot.
Keftes de Espinaca -- this is the closest thing I have found to Croquetas de Espinaca (Spinach Croquettes). A friend brought them over about 6 months ago and have been looking for them ever since. She bought them from a bakery that moved out of town. Even spinach haters can't resist them, especially when they're splashed with a little fresh lemon juice; fresh juice does make a major difference in taste. Onions add a sweet flavor and textural complexity.
Emaw is my mother and we have been on a quest to get her recipes on paper. She gets a real kick out of them being here. She is kind of bossy about the instructions but she has your best interests at heart and wants you to enjoy her recipes, lol. These are one of my favorite things she has made all my life, they are crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside, YUM!
Oliekoeken are the ancestors of the American doughnut, which the pilgrims learned to make from their Dutch neighbors in Amsterdam before sailing for the new world. From the Michigan Dutch chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.
Fritters are very popular in the Middle East. They are eaten hot or at room temperature as a vegetable side dish or a meze. It couldn’t be simpler to make, but you can dress it up with optional garnishes of black olives, tomatoes, or hard-boiled egg. The perfect use for small, sweet new zucchini. Serve alone or with a creamy garlic-lemon yogurt sauce for a perfect complement to any spicy or grilled foods that call for a cooling accompaniment.
This recipe combines the distinctive taste and wonderful crunch of celery root with the usual starchy Russet potatoes. I loved the flavor and the texture, they taste wonderful when topped with applesauce. This recipe is gluten-free if you use a gluten-free flour mix instead of matzo meal. These freeze well, so make extra!
i found this recipe on the Precious brand ricotta cheese container in 1975 and have been making them ever since! our friend, Patrick, calls them "heavenly". these are such light, fluffy pancakes that it's hard to stop eating them! i double or triple the recipe for my family of 6.
These are wonderful and are almost too healthy to be true. Lots of calcium, protein, fiber, etc. I usually eat them without any topping and just keep popping them in my mouth! Yum. But a good jam will do them nicely as well.
I have been making these for over 20 years, I usually get about 15 patties but it depends on the size of the batter that you drop in the pan, these are better if fried to very brown and crispy, you can make a double recipe, fry them then freeze them on a tray then pop them into freezer bags, then just warm them in the oven to crisp up, they are very addicting and I can tell you I eat half before they even get to the table lol! If you plan on doubling the recipe then make two separate recipes in two bowls, I have doubled the recipe into one bowl and for some reason they just are not as good --- if desired you could add in a slightly beaten large egg and reduce the milk by 1/4 cup --- you will *love* these! also see my
I ate these growing up. I don't know if my Mom happened to be out of potatoes one day and just tried carrots or if she got them out of a book. She doesn't remember, but I seem to remember her just substituting the carrots because we were out of potatoes. They're much better when you keep the carrots and onion almost to equal amounts
