Indian Potato, Ginger and Carrot Latkes

In my house, we can’t go through Chanukah without eating latkes at least once, so I decided to pour my holiday spirit into creating a new Chanukah recipe.

Crispy Quinoa Cakes

I’ve been intrigued by quinoa cakes ever since I first devoured them at Le Pain Quotidian, a Belgian café and bakery chain. This version, also inspired by a recipe from eatingwelllivingthin.wordpress.com, is mild enough for picky eaters but interesting enough for adventurous eaters.

Coconut Meringue Cookies

My dear friend Christina McHenry’s grandmother, Elizabeth Williamson, used to bake these melt-in-your-mouth coconut meringue cookies for Chrissie and her siblings when they were growing up. These cookies work well for Passover because they don’t have any type of flour in them, and I like them a lot better than traditional coconut macaroons. You may
