Latke is the Yiddish word for pancake. Jewish people living in the Pale of Settlement in the 17th century had a diet that consisted mainly of potatoes and bread.

Recipe from the Jewish Holiday Cookbook Ingredients 10 medium russet potatoes 2 medium onions 2 large eggs 1/4 cup matzah meal salt and pepper grapeseed oil Peel the potatoes if the skin is coarse; otherwise, just clean them well. Starting with the onions, alternately grate some of the onions on the large holes of the grater and some of the potatoes on the smallest holes. Blend the potato mixture with the eggs, matzah meal, and salt and pepper to taste. Heat 1 inch of oil in a frying pan. Recipe for Cilantro Lime Hummus.

Broiled Grapefruit Recipe

My grandpa lives in Arizona and used to send us big boxes of grapefruit. They were the best! My grandpa kept sending me boxes until I graduated college, so not only do I love eating grapefruit, but they also remind me of my grandpa. I love how food intertwines with special people, events, and memories. Last week we bought a ton of grapefruit-it was on sale 8 for $1.00. I cut the grapefruit in half and drizzled the tops with a little bit of agave nectar. I normally don’t put sugar on my grapefruit, so this was a special treat. Broiled Grapefruit Ingredients:1 large pink grapefruit, cut in half Drizzle of agave nectar Sprinkling of turbinado sugarDirections:1.
