Latkes and Donuts, Oh My!

Chanuka is, in essence, a celebration of oil. Well, really the miracle that made oil last longer than it should have. But we celebrate it with a festival full of fried foods, including potato pancakes, fritters, and donuts. Last night, my parents held their annual latke party, and I decided to try my hand at donut-making. I made both cake donuts and yeast donuts to follow my dad's famous potato pancakes, and everyone went home stuffed! Check out the recipes at my food blog.
