Latkes (potato pancakes) are yummy.  I first had them at Marche downtown with sour cream and sausage.  My recipe is made just a little lighter with the addition of cauliflower. I used the grater blade on my cuisinart and threw the potatoes, onions and cauliflower in (but you can finely chop/mince the cauliflower if you don’t have one). The recipe makes about 10-12 latkes- I just do a heaping spoonful of the mixture for each patty. Be sure to use Russett potatoes- they are less moist. Using a non stick pan makes things go more smoothly, and about 2-3 minutes on med-hi heat per side should do it!

1-tumblr 2015 short term2

Last year I went to Chasing The Cheese in PTBO and made some yummy grilled cheese with them picking the cheese and I made them and sampled each one to later reveal what type of cheese they gave me.  This year… I did it again and went back to the cheese shop.  This time… I thought I would shoot a little video about the little outing.

Make 10 Things | New Cookbook | @keener1111 is a rockstar

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

On Saturday, when I was picking up my kids… my Son brought out a wrapped gift with my name on it.  He told me that his friend from school gave it to him for me.  I was confused.  I stood there and wondered how his friend would do this for me.  Also… what was it?  I opened it right away and could see it was a book.  Again… I’m thinking… why would his friend give me a book?

I then noticed it was a cookbook and I could see the blue sticky that said #59/101 and it hit me.  It was from Christine.  Her Son is my Son’s mate at school and I had the opportunity to hang out with her last fall at the Pumpkin Patch.  She noticed my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days and number #59 was to get a cookbook and make 10 things from it.

Challenge accepted.  I have 10 things to make from this book.

1-Corn ChowderThis was pretty yummy.  I found it better on the 2nd day and I would make it again.  It’s a Winter thing for sure!1-20140312-DSC_0002

Update:  This task was never completed and I feel bad.  I still have the cookbook but one day when I get a kitchen of my own… and I pull this cookbook out of the box… I know I will finish this off.  🙂
