Bramboracky (Czech Savory Potato Pancakes)
I am a full-blooded Czech and this is exactly how we always make the potato pancakes (called "bramboraky" or "cmunda"). Traditionally these are fried in lard - it adds that extra flavor but I doubt many would try that. When I make them at my home here in America, I just use regular vegetable oil. Few pointers: Don't skip or substitute the marjoram, I actually add way more then just a pinch. Also add lots of pepper and especially salt. Potatoes tend to soak up the salt flavor quite a bit. Lets face it, this is not a healthy meal to begin with, so you might as well make it right. Like Sonya recommends, fry up and taste the first pancake, it should have a nice salty/garlicky flavor. Even tho I've made these many times, it usually takes me more then one trial pancake to get the flavor right. When my mom made these, it was the one time we didn't actually have a sit down family dinner. We would just sneak them right when they were done and she ate as she was making them. They just taste the best when they're nice and hot right out of the frying pan!

Uglies
These were so yummy. I used only about 2/3 lbs of ground beef. I didn't measure the other ingredients, just guesstimated and the mixture turned out great. There was enough to fill the full muffin tin of 12, so I used 2 packs of biscuits and now I have to figure out what to do with my leftover 4. The kids really enjoyed them, even though it's a bit messy - they are 4 and 2.5 years old.

Abbey's White Chocolate Latte
OMG, thank you so much for this recipe!!! I have an espresso machine with a steaming wand, so I used that to steam the milk and chocolate chips until they melted and the milk was nice and hot. I added a bit of Vanilla and then brewed two shots of espresso into my humongous mug! I didn't add any extra sugar, because I don't use it in regular coffee and didn't want the drink overly sweet. This is the perfect drink on such a cold day like today.
