I always end up with leftover mashed potatoes. I overestimate how much we’re going to eat, or I underestimate how big those potatoes really are….one way or another, there’s always a small bowl of leftovers hiding in the fridge. The more I cook, and I cook a lot, the more little leftover bowls there will

The more garlic you use, the safer from vampires you will be. I used 5 big cloves and I’m feeling pretty safe right now. Vampires and germs will both stay away, I’m sure. I’m a big fan of mashed potatoes – actually, potatoes, in almost any form you can name. Double baked, cheese on top,

I have tried making these before and they didn’t overwhelm me….but having cooked many different types of potato dishes since then, I’m pretty sure I messed them up and blamed the recipe and not the cook, so I’m trying them again. I have high hopes! These are named after a restaurant in Sweden that first

Mid August has descended upon Calgary, and so has cooler weather. It was a whopping 9C today. 34C a week or so ago, and 9C today. I was messaging with someone today and they mentioned that there was snow in Alberta last week – wasn’t sure where, exactly, but the rumour is out there. Given

Still have not gone grocery shopping – pantry still depleted….not empty, just depleted. I’m craving salmon and perogies….not together, though. I knew I had a coil of ham sausage (kielbassa) in the freezer somewhere, so that was on the menu. I still had no urge to make jambalaya so I needed to figure out something

** http://www.handcraftedbyradar.com for more recipes ** It’s really strange how “tater tots” has become what we call these small packages of potato goodness, baked or fried to a crispy outside with a fluffy inside….sort of a short, fat french fry. No matter what they are called by their individual manufacturers, all of us call them

My mom used to make these and I have attempted these more than once. Neither one of us was successful….not that I told mom that, I’m not stupid. Both of us would grate the potatoes, mix with some egg, and fry them up…..don’t cringe, neither of us knew any better. During the frying, they would

I should know better…..actually, I do know better and still I do it every time. Any time I make a casserole or scalloped potatoes, where the potatoes are sliced into rounds, I always, always, always find the one or two pieces that aren’t quite cooked. I do better if I par boil them first, but

Lemon Garlic Potatoes

I’m late to the flavoured potatoes game. I usually peel them, boil them, mash them, eat them. Bake them (by bake I mean microwave), put on toppings, eat them. Occasionally scallop them, sometimes french fry them. That’s pretty much my potato repertoire. I did try smashed potatoes a while ago and they were pretty good,
