Perfect Mashed Potatoes {pioneer woman}


If I could chose only one side dish for Thanksgiving it would likely be mashed potatoes. I always pile a large amount on my plate. They are the best thing ever. Truly. Thanksgiving and Christmas are normally about the only time I make them so to me they are an extra special treat. Which naturally…

Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Mashed Potatoes


I found these potatoes listed in the Thanksgiving 2016 section in my Thanksgiving edition of Food Network Magazine. These potatoes are a bit putzy what with having to roast the garlic, make the cheese and rosemary shards and then finally boil up the potatoes. But, I will tell you that they are every bit worth…

Salt and Vinegar Potato Slices


I found this recipe months ago and never really had an excuse until this week when my friends and I decided to make burgers and fries after work one night. Jennifer, Kyna and I fumbled our way through this recipe as we fumbled our way through the burgers (and a few glasses of wine). Both…

Scalloped Gold and Sweet Potato Gratin


My grandma sent me a recipe for scalloped potatoes, which she clipped from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. It was originally featured in Bon Appetit. In the classic bad habit that I tend to have, I did not thoroughly read the directions and only baked the dish half the required time (also failed to cover it in…

Crusted Cream Cheese Mashed Potatoes


I know; I know. I’ve been talking an awful lot about these potatoes recently. I first resurrected these potatoes last Sunday for my friend Thanksgiving. They were so good I made them again for my family Thanksgiving. I can’t say this enough: These are the best, creamiest mashed potatoes ever. And everyone agrees! For round…

Mom’s Hash Browns


Hash browns sold in your local grocery store or served at a diner might be cubed pieces of potato. In my family (and at Denny’s), hash browns are shredded or grated. Hash browns are one of the first things I remember making on my own for dinner (along with pancakes) while my mom was gone…

Extra-Creamy Scalloped Potatoes


I didn’t have very high of expectations for these potatoes. I liked the recipe because it was simple and something I’ve never made before. I was a bit skeptical, however. I really felt like there should have been some cheese somewhere in the recipe! As it turns out, the recipe doesn’t need cheese. (I know….

Potato Gnocchi


Gaylord and I had high hopes for our gnocchi endeavor. Neither one of us has ever made any type of homemade pasta before, so we were pretty excited to try our hand at gnocchi. We began at approximately 5 p.m. when we got back from shopping for the ingredients and ended at approximately 1 a.m….

Sweet Potato Pie


I don’t like Sweet Potatoes. Period. I don’t like them in anything. I detest them so much that I hate when restaurants even offer Sweet Potato French fries in lieu of normal French fries (what’s a better side dish with your perfect burger than perfect French fries?). Worse is when a restaurant only serves Sweet…
