  • Happy holidays!

    — Nancy and Karen

    * In case you didn’t know, latkes aren’t usually made from peanut butter and jelly. Also known as “potato pancakes,” latkes are traditionally patties made of shredded potato pieces, deep fried into delicious salty crispy bits of yumminess. (Surprise, surprise, this description was provided by Karen.)
