New Recipes This Week: Turtle Soup, Latkes, Gravlax And Plantains

This week, we brought back the plantain. It's savory, no, it's sweet! Now, it's both and you get to practice your pepper-roasting technique. Beet-cured gravlax makes a vibrant, colorful appetizer for your holiday party and should you have any extra turtle lying around, we have the recipe for you.

To keep things seasonal, we posted a recipe for the perfect classic potato pancake, better known as a latke and happily eaten on Hanukah, which begins Sunday. Check out what else we added to the Recipes section this week. The homemade bourbon peanut butter cups made us will surely be making the rounds at all Food Republic holiday parties.
