Welcome to our blog! We wanted a place to share reviews of Mark Bittman recipes from "How to Cook Everything" and "How to Cook Everything Vegetarian" cookbooks. This blog's purpose is not to re-post recipes, but instead we will leave feedback for HTCE and HTCEV users on recipes we have tried, what we have loved and what we haven't loved.
Quote from Intro:
"Anyone can cook, and most everyone should. It's a sorry sign that many people consider cooking 'from scratch' an unusual and even rare talent. In fact, it is a simple and rewarding craft, one that anyone can learn and even succeed at from the get-go." -Bittman, HTCE

Potato "Nik" Variation: Latkes (Potato Pancakes)
I love Latkes! They are so easy to make and a great way to eat potatoes! Not that there's anything wrong with all of the other ways to eat potatoes, this one is just a little different.
The recipe was good although I would suggest adding some carrots into the mix as a good way to add a vegetable to the meal. Chives or green onions would be another good addition. I served these the traditional way: with sour cream and applesauce (the top two garnishes Mark lists with the recipe).
