I Dare You to Feed Hungry Kids (+ Potato Latke Recipe)

organic Potatoes

Every year, my kids and I look forward to potato latkes.  Truth be told, we don’t even wait for Hanukkah half of the time.  Sometimes we mix it up a little and add some shredded carrots or sweet potatoes.  But other times, we simply opt for the traditional ones with potatoes.  This version comes from my book, The Whole Family Cookbook, due out in April.  Consider it my early gift to your family for the holidays.

Share our Holiday TableNothing chaps my hide like the concept of childhood hunger.  We live in a nation of excess and yet kids are hungry.  That’s one of the reasons I adore Share our Strength.  Their mission is to prevent childhood hunger in America and they are doing one heck of a job. Maybe instead of spending a few bucks on a double half-caff-vanilla-mocha-macchiato-chai-latte each day for a week, you could set that cash aside and help some needy children.  Please click on the Share our Holiday Table icon and make a donation.  Even a teensy one makes a difference.  It is an honor to be participating in this virtual progressive dinner party with over 50 other compassionate bloggers.  I hope you’ll pay each of them a visit.

Happy Holidays,

  6. Fun recipe! Love the picture of the potato… Reminds me of when my college roommates and I discovered a potato that had sprouted in the back of our fridge. Drew on a face and called it the octo-potato.

  14. So glad your recipe steps include squeezing the grated potatoes in a towel. It makes all the difference in the finished latke. Yum! I will try your version with gluten free flour. Thanks!

    I’ve been seeing latkes around lately, calling to me, with their potato faces…
    I think this cause is awesome. I hope everyone who reads this donates something.
