Pampushki – a Special Kind of Latke

Latke lovers, the time has come for a different creation. Something special. Something that could actually count as a meal… maybe. I know what you’re thinking: “How could the latke possibly be improved?” Though hash brown medallions with plops of sour cream and applesauce is just short of perfection, there is one thing that can improve almost any dish. That’s right. It’s cheese.

Chanukah Puff Pastry Cronuts

Hey, so back from Thanksgiving, and already a holiday is hot on my heels! Chanukah starts Sunday night. Before Chanukah used to be a week of holiday parties and taking a moment to light a menorah. Now that we have a kids, we’ve got to think about doing something every night for 8 nights. S is almost 4 months old, so we’re not doing anything out of the ordinary this year, but still, having a kid makes us give pause to think about the kinds of traditions we want establish in our family.

Fluffy Coffee Cinnamon Rolls

Nothing’s better than ooey, gooey, chewy sweet cinnamon rolls and these ones are made with coffee! The original recipe used instant coffee grounds, so I went to Trader Joe’s to pick up some, and I knew I would regret it. I’ve bought instant coffee grounds before, use them for one recipe, and they sit on my shelf for 7 years after that. So while I was at TJ’s the clouds parted and the sky opened! They have cold brew coffee concentrate – perfect! Not only is cold brew less bitter, I knew my husband would have no problem finishing it off.
