About five years ago, Ms. Milgrom discovered a trove of recipes at her mother’s house that included churros — a dish that followed immigrants from Spain and Portugal to various destinations in the New World. Her family first used anise liqueur in the dough, followed by rum when they settled in Cuba, after first passing through the Canary Islands, Colombia and Costa Rica.

Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and let it cool 5 minutes. Add the vanilla and egg to the flour mixture and then blend it immediately with an electric mixer. Blend until mixture comes together and is smooth (it will separate at first but keep mixing it will come together).

Her take on latkes is less about native Texas ingredients than it is aimed at addressing the city’s disproportionately high rate of diabetes and other health concerns. She’s swapped starchy white potatoes with sweet potatoes and carrots bound with coconut flour instead of wheat for a latke that tastes and feels right, but has a lower glycemic index and is gluten-free, to boot.

A brisket bubbling away in a tomato-rich sauce on the stove top is a common find in the Hanukkah kitchen across the country. Stanley brings that home to Texas by giving the beef a generous dose of cumin, cayenne, chili powder and other local cupboard staples.
