On the first night of Hanukkah, my mommy gave to me — some yummy latkes made by me! We're wishing everyone celebrating the festival of lights a happy start to their holiday this weekend! After the menorah, there are few symbols of the holiday as prevalent as the latke — that potato pancake fried up in olive oil and dipped in either applesauce or sour cream. While kids shouldn't be the ones handling the flipping in the hot oil, they can still help with the latke preparation so they can claim the dish as their own at your upcoming Hanukkah celebrations. Check out how my lil helper got to work on our favorite latke recipe this past weekend then delved into a pile of the tasty, crispy treats!
