  1. Delicious, these are the best potato pancakes I have ever had. They taste just like the potato pancakes my german mother-in-law makes! Very simple but they do take a while to cook!
  2. I used some left over mashed potatos, added fresh garlic and scallions in place of the salts. Yummy. I'll be having this again soon!
  3. This recipe was very good and very easy. To make things easier, I boiled the potatoes first and then mashed them up. I also increased the amount of garlic, onion and pepper to make things a little more savoury. All in all, these were great!!!!
  4. Quick and easy! We gobbled them right up with a little aplle sauce and sour cream. Will be making these again! Thanks!
  5. This was a quick and tasty recipe. I made this recipe and then I made Sopsky, which is a veggie salad. Everything was delicious!


I am 31, and a cytotechnologist in the Navy (Don't know what it is? Don't feel bad, few people do)with just under 10 years to retirement. Kerrbear is my wife and we have two GREAT kids, Aidyn (4) and Kelsi (2). Next to my family hockey is my favorite thing in the world, watching, playing, anything to do with hockey, in particular my sons hockey and the Vancouver Canucks. After hockey cooking is the other thing I really enjoy. I'm very open to trying new foods of all cuisines, however the one thing I refuse to try is balut. I could not see myself trying it without MUCH help from a bottle of something very strong.
