Cacio e Pepe Potatoes Anna

Share

This is one of those situations where I knew the recipe was going to be delicious (it was!), and I knew I wanted it posted on the blog so I could have the recipe on hand so I could make it again, but I also knew we didn’t have time to get set up to […]

Cabbage and Potato Gratin

Share

This recipe is very similar to a Polish cabbage and bacon casserole recipe that I published a couple of years ago. This recipe is vegetarian. I have to admit that this is so good that I don’t miss the bacon. Don’t get me wrong – I love bacon, but my vegetarian son is subtly pushing […]

Andean Potato and Cheese Soup (Locro de Papa)

I have never cooked with queso fresco before. I saw some in Costco the other day, so I picked up a package. I bought 2 eight-ounce blocks, so you’ll probably see another cheese recipe or two before I use it up. Queso fresco (or “fresh cheese”), is mild, mellow and a bit salty and a […]

If you like Southwestern flavors and you like potato salads that have a mayonnaise base, this potato salad is for you!   This is a nice change from your traditional potato salad.  It has some nice smoky warmth from the chipotle puree and the cayenne.   As with most potato salad recipes I’ve made, this makes A […]

Colcannon

Every St. Patrick’s Day, I make a traditional Irish dinner of corned beef and boiled cabbage, carrots and potatoes.  This year I followed a Sandra Lee recipe which called for cooking everything in the crock pot in a mixture of water and apple juice.    Actually, I cooked everything but the potatoes in the crock pot.  […]
