Join Meir Panim’s campaign to “light up” Chanukah for families in need.
Most people will agree that one of the joys of Chanukah is the excuse to eat potato latkes. However, for many the preparation is a hassle, and we would much rather spend that time with our families. So, for years many people have used packaged frozen latkes. Don’t get me wrong - they are good, but it’s not quite the same as homemade.
This year there is a new latke in town - one that gives you the taste of homemade with a fraction of the work. Ruthie & Gussie’s Traditional Potato Pancake Batter (Steve’s Gold Metal Latkes, Star’K, parve) is made from an award-winning recipe. The batter comes in a 28 oz. plastic container that you can keep in your freezer until you need it, then either defrost in the refrigerator or microwave and mix.
I made the latkes last week on Friday – at the height of the snowstorm - and the 28 oz. container made 25 nice-size latkes that were eaten as fast was I could make them. We had a house full of children and all of them (including Raizy and Shmuly) kept coming back for more. The only complaint I got was, “When are you making more?”
Quick and easy, this latkes batter is a must for Chanukah. Look for it in your local kosher grocery or on the web at www.ruthieandgussies.com.
Many of you may have seen the ads in our Kosher Food section for Doctor B’s Kosher Lite meals. This is a product line that is low fat, low carb and low cholesterol, but filled with great taste. As you know, in this column we only review products that we have had the opportunity to sample. Doctor B’s sent us a shipment of food a few weeks ago that we all enjoyed. The variety of food they offer is amazing – everything from stuffed cabbage (parve) to cream of spinach parmigana crepes (dairy) to an incredible vanilla cheesecake (dairy, 3 WW points) - and are all reasonably priced. Whether you are on Atkins, Weight Watchers, are diabetic or just plain looking to eat something healthy and good - give Doctor B’s Kosher Lite products a try. Doctor B’s can be reached at 718-591-3447 – Make sure to ask about their dessert gift boxes, which can be delivered nationwide.
Once again, have a great Chanukah.
