Paula Peck's Cookbooks.

Sorry, somehow I hit the wrong key and was cut off. At any rate, two incredible Paula Peck recipes you might try are Heavenly Chocolate Cubes, p 184, and Orange Slices, p 85. Baking with a difference!

Latkes (Potato Pancakes)

1. You don't need baking powder in latkes.
2. As for Vitamin C, I guess there's some current thinking about that as a latke ingredient, but it's new to me.
3. Latke's are MUCH better if grated by hand, not in food processor which overgrates them and results in greasy pancakes.
4. You can also make latkes quite successfully without onions.
5. If you're making a lot of latkes, you can keep them warm on a baking sheet in an oven heated to approx. 275-300 degrees.
