The darndest things show up on our desks. Usually they're edible or drinkable (no, thank YOU, makers of smooth, elegant Courvosier Connoisseur), but few make us as giddy as a flash drive loaded with pictures of the latest creations by our resident Kosher kitchen wizard Steven Weinberger.

We didn't get a whole lot of details this time - "The pictures speak for themselves," he e-mailed. But when he materialized at the end of the day to join the rest of us in getting a surreptitious peek at David Hasselhoff across the office (again, did we mention the weird things that show up here?) he mentioned he'd augmented these holiday hamantaschen (a three-cornered pastry with a filling in the center) with a batter made from some funnel cake mix he'd bought at Bed, Bath & Beyond, sticks and 375°F Wesson vegetable oil.

Light the menorah, fire up the fryer and have a deliciously deep-fried Hanukkah!
