Chag Sameach!On Hanukkah, those of the Jewish faith celebrate by lighting the menorah and eating traditional fried foods like latkes, which alludes to the significance of oil to the eight-day celebration. My family is big latke fans — our dog’s name is even latke! Every Hanukkah, I make this recipe for my family and friends, and am sharing it with my fellow Pennsylvanians this year so they can enjoy them as much as us.
