Catch The Flying Latke at the Flea Theater (review and discount code)

“Uuuummmmm…..Mommy,  Latkes don’t fly! Why would they do that?”

So started my subway ride downtown with my super-curious, constantly questioning 5 year old. As the train rumbled on, I must’ve heard 17 versions of that question (statement?)…

Well, it turns out that sometimes they do.

Adapted by Arthur Yorinks from his children’s book,  “The Flying Latke” is the story of a chaotic family celebration of the first night of  Hanukkah.  After a disagreement between cousins, a food fight ensues and a latke (potato pancake traditionally made for the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah) flies out the window  and is mistaken for a UFO, sending the world into a panic and trapping the Silversteins in the house for 8 days with nothing but a never-ending supply of latkes to eat.


A peek Into My Kitchen: Baked French Toast



French toast is definitely a favorite family breakfast, but there are few mornings (even Sundays) when I want to stand over the stove making piece by piece and worrying about keeping them warm in the oven so that we can all eat together.

With this recipe, I slice the bread, stir the ingredients together…stick it all in the oven at one time and we can all sit down to eat french toast together 🙂



Baked French Toast


1/2 stick unsalted butter

3 Tbsp maple syrup/honey/agave nectar

2/3 c apple juice/apple cider/orange juice

4 large eggs

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

6-8 slices of challah or other bread
