    Great recipe. I didn’t know about the starch in the bottom of the bowl! Love potato pancakes.

    I love your videos! You may know this. I wish that you would make more than one per week because they cheer me up when I watch them. Have you ever thought about making a linear cooking video without all of the edits and different camera angles? I know that this is the current fad, but I suspect that the editing time required for these videos may be holding back your productivity. I would much rather see videos that are shot beginning to end with minimal editing and more of them. Some people may think that looks amateurish, but I don’t agree with that. I’ve been watching Paula Deen’s “quarantine” videos and everything is shot linearly by her husband with no editing. She’s old school and she can break the rules, but when I watch her unedited videos, I feel like I’m in her kitchen as her guest and it’s all in real time. You have an extremely sweet, magnetic, engaging personality that is rare enough that people will watch your videos no matter how they are edited.
