Today is the 7th anniversary of my first date with Adam, so I decided to make Sunday brunch (complete with mimosas) to kick off the day. Tonight we’re going to dinner at Dish, one of my favorite restaurants in Red Bank (and one that I used to mistakenly call Dine). So I thought brunch at home would be perfect. And I made potato pancakes from a recipe by Duff Goldman of Ace of Cakes fame (love that show).

They were so good, and once I figured out how to make them, they were really easy. Next time I’ll play with the seasoning more, they were just slightly on the bland side. This recipe is an adaptation of Duff’s grandmother’s latke recipe. I had mix leftover that I’ll freeze and play with another day.
