Loaded Barbeque Baked Potato Salad

I created this fun and summery recipe for a new-to-me brand of mayonnaise – Blue Plate® Mayonnaise. I was thrilled that they wanted me to experience and use their new Blue Plate® Light Mayonnaise with Greek Yogurt, as I’ve been itching to make a potato salad again, and mayo is exactly what I needed! Summer. […]

Chocolate and Potato Cream Martinis

You didn’t read that wrong, and no, despite how oddball it sounds, I did not make a bizarre typing error.  I really meant Chocolate and Potato Cream…served in martini glasses. Yes, it’s a dessert. And yes, it is made of potatoes. Remember when I went to Idaho on with the Idaho Potato folks?  Well,  couple […]

Sweet Potato Hash and Sunny Eggs

Sometimes, you just want something simple.  Dinner seems impossible, the day was too long, the night is filled with more work than you care to think about.  On days like this, I like to think breakfast for dinner. Pancakes.  Waffles.  Bacon and sausage. Eggs. This sweet potato hash is an easy solution that will have […]

Kentucky Hot Brown Potato Waffles…with Idaho® Potatoes

A couple of weeks ago, I spent a few days in Idaho Falls, Idaho, courtesy of the Idaho Potato Commission. That’s right…a trip all about potatoes.  Russets, Golden, Purple.  Big. Small. Fingerling.  Mashed, chips, whole.  Baked and fried and sweet and savory.  Heck, we even had doughnuts made out of potatoes. It happened. It was […]

Roasted Potato Salad with Tomatoes & Basil

Not every dish must be a Main Dish. But…every dish should be a Great Dish. I was contacted by Reser’s to create a potato salad recipe…and this was the result!  Roasted Potato Salad with Tomatoes & Basil is so fresh and flavorful, it would be the perfect side to chicken, pork, or beef. The addition […]

Cheesy Potato Breakfast Casserole

I don’t do casseroles.  Have you noticed? Don’t ask me why…I do like to eat them. I just don’t MAKE them. Why? Beats me.  I’m a strange bird. For Christmas, Jon got a wild hair about him that he was going to make a turkey for lunch and a breakfast casserole for, um, breakfast.  So, […]

BBQ Chicken Legs and Roasted Potatoes {And a Giveaway!}

It’s rare that I talk about grilling and meat here.  Sorry about that.  I still consider grilling to be a man’s job.  Very sexist of me, I know. It’s just the way I grew up. But, the secret is, men love to grill. And I love to eat.  So, give the man some chicken, a […]

Cheddar Baked Potato Soup

Last week held a few bitter cold days for us here.  Rainy, windy, icky.  The kind of days you just want to crawl in under the covers and hide, only to emerge for hot bowls of soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Or at least that’s what we wanted to do, anyway. Jon works outdoors, all […]

Buffalo Chicken Pot Pie

We eat a LOT of chicken wings around here. Back when Jon and I were in college, still dating, we would join my roommate Nicole and Jon’s roommate Nick (now my brother in law) for chicken wings every Wednesday.  There was a bar downtown that used to do a buffet with about 20 different wing […]
