Thanksgiving Tacos

Back in September, my friend Jenn and I took a very unplanned trip to the beach over Labor Day weekend. We both love the beach but didn’t have any plans to go down for the holiday weekend, because traffic is usually a nightmare. But then Jenn posted some image about […]

Mashed Potatoes for a Crowd

I’m back with another recipe for Holiday Side Dish week! I’ve probably mentioned this a million times but my mom has never been a great cook. But one thing that she always did was make homemade mashed potatoes. I honestly didn’t even know that you could get “mashed potatoes” from […]

Bangers and Mash with Onion-Mustard Gravy

I’ll admit, I was a little stumped as to what to make for this Improv Cooking Challenge. The first image that came to my mind when I thought about sausage and mustard as ingredients is slicing up some cold homemade kielbasa and dipping it into good old French’s mustard. Now […]

Parmesan Parsley Roasted Potatoes

For as much as I cook, I feel like the one thing that I consistently struggle with is a serving a variety of side dishes with our dinners each night. It doesn’t help that Tom doesn’t like most vegetables and isn’t a big fan of rice, which really limits my […]

Parmesan Sage Mashed Sweet Potatoes

I can’t believe I spent as long as I did never liking sweet potatoes. Now that I like them, well, love them, I’d much rather have a sweet potato over a regular potato any day of the week. I prefer them savory, with butter salt and pepper instead of the […]

Soy Cilantro Roasted Red Potatoes

Recipe Remake: This recipe is probably the best accident I ever created, but I didn’t even know it at the time. I first shared this recipe with you back in August of 2010 and then a few months later during a “blogger’s choice” recipe swap, someone found these homely little […]

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Do you go through phases of side dishes? I do. When I first started cooking, we had roasted red potatoes practically once a week. Then I went through a risotto phase where we had risotto all of the time. I think baked potatoes followed that. Then it was mashed potatoes, […]

Cheddar-Chive Twice-Baked Potatoes

Why bake a potato once when you can bake it twice? For years I never understood why people would spend the time to make a potato more than once when a baked potato was perfectly good all on its own. And then I had a twice baked potato filled with […]

Garlic Parmesan Potato “chips”

So I lied. I was planning on making homemade french fries with tonight’s meal but when I pulled out the potatoes I had a new idea. Of course I couldn’t decide whether I wanted garlic Parmesan or Old Bay seasoning on them, so I decided to make both.
