Once upon a time, about a year ago, in fact, my aunt decided to try to resurrect her mother's potato pancake recipe. After trying it out to be sure it tasted just the way she remembered it tasted, she sent it out to our extended family e-mail list, explaining at the end that, "It's scary to think Mom's recipe almost vanished!"
I was interested in trying it sometime so decided to post it here to Studeo for my own convenience. (Recipe here.)
Well, the recipe didn't die (and we tried it and liked it and have made it several times - we're looking forward to making it soon with some homemade maple syrup from our own trees).
Well, anyway, if you Google "Potato Pancake Recipe" right now, you'll find that it's #1. Yep, right above the recipes from allrecipes.com, cooks.com, epicurious.com and foodnetwork.com.
And I suspect that somewhere, up there, Grandma is smiling. :)
