It’s customary to prepare fried foods in celebration of the miracle of Hanukkah. The oil used in frying honors the oil that kept the menorah lit for eight days, instead of the one day it was supposed to last. That’s why Molly’s pancakes, though traditionally Chinese, also make a great addition to a Hanukkah celebration. They’re fried until golden brown and crispy, then topped with a carrot-maple syrup slaw.

Molly Yeh's Fried Cheesy Pickles

Craving something sour? Molly folds her cheese-wrapped pickles into an egg roll wrapper, then deep-fries the pickles for just a few minutes. A Sriracha-ranch dressing is the finishing touch for this easy, cheesy dish.

Molly’s got your sweet tooth covered with this colorful cake. She uses olive oil and Greek yogurt to load her cake with moisture, then tops it with a sweet and vibrant cranberry glaze.
