• Sunday (or thursday or friday or monday) Pot Roast

    Pot Roast is one of my most favorite Comfort foods.  You know like cookies, casseroles or your favorite cake.  Comfort food is all I am craving these days.  I know I should be focusing on eating healthier and all that, but honestly all I want is food that warms my soul.  Roast is one of my most favorite comfort foods and this roast is my MOST favorite.  Fall Apart Pot Roast To me the mark of a GREAT pot roast is if it falls apart.  I mean is there anything better than a super tender pot roast that literally falls apart when you stick a fork into it?  I don’t…

  • Creamy Garlic Chicken & Potato Bake

    Happy Garlic Day!  To celebrate I waned to share one of our new favorites…Creamy Garlic Chicken & Potato Bake.  It is loaded with tons of flavor and comes together pretty quick too. It just makes me happy… I love a dinner that can all be prepared in a couple of pans and it is loaded with a ton of flavor.  This dish is all that and more.  It has super juicy chicken, tender potatoes and a little spinach (you know so it is healthy) and a rich garlic cream sauce making it SOOOOO good. It really does have everything you need for a hearty dinner all in one pan. The…

  • Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes – A New Favorite

    I am so OBSESSED with my Instant Pot.  I cannot get enough of it.  You literally can cook anything in it…even Cheesecake.  I mean really you cook almost ANYTHING!  As much as I loved the cheesecake the mashed potatoes I made in the IP (instant pot) were even better!! I could live on these Mashed Potatoes are a passion for me.  My MeeMaw was the mashed potato Queen and I learned all my best tips and tricks from her.  I am not going to lie I was a little nervous taking a favorite and trying to recreate it in the instant pot…especially for my mashed potato loving family. Thankfully they…

  • I could eat these everyday

    I think if I could only eat one thing for the rest if my life it might just be mashed potatoes.  I LOVE THEM that much, especially this new mashed potato recipe.  Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes.  They are loaded with tons a flavor, they are rich and creamy. It’s a family thing My MeeMaw LOVED mashed potatoes.  I mean she LOVED, LOVED them.  She loved them so much she always said she wanted to be buried in them.  She was not buried in them, but she did really love them.  Her mashed potatoes were very classic with a little sour cream added in for a little extra something, and now I have taken…

  • Potatoes kissed with butter & garlic = AMAZING

    Potatoes are a staple side in my family and I am always on a mission to make them fun and delicious.  These Garlic Butter Potatoes are not only delicious but they are so easy, they are perfect for dinner tonight!! A side to remember Ok, Ok I know that skillet roasted potatoes are nothing too special…that is until you add in the garlic, butter and thyme.     For a little extra fun I used triple color baby potatoes.  I just love the combo of the red, yellow and purple (yes I said purple) potatoes.  There is a great mix of texture and color making this side dish feel a…

  • potato salad is a must have this weekend…

    Memorial Day is fast approaching and that means it is time to start planning for the big BBQ you are going to be having and potato salad is a must have on our menu…and this potato salad is a delicious one!! Now I have made my fair share of potato salads over time but this definately one of my favorites.  It all starts with the bacon.  I mean any recipe that starts with bacon has to be yummy.  Next comes the potatoes, I decided to roast the potatoes in just a tad bit of bacon grease (it’s just a little)…I mean I could have just stopped there and been so,…

  • a “healthy” mash

    Mashed potatoes are a must have at all of our Thanksgiving celebrations and our Pot Luck Thanksgiving was no exception, but these have a little twist that surprised everyone. Make sure and check back often to get these recipes very soon… Pot Luck Fun One of the best parts of a Pot Luck dinner is never really knowing what is going to be coming through the door.  And while this is a Thanksgiving Pot Luck I did have a pretty good idea of what to expect my Sis-in-Law really surprised me. She said she was bringing the mashed potatoes and I LOVE mashed potatoes so I was super excited. Only she told me…

  • one pan cheesy goodness

    Busy weeks mean quick dinners are a must and this one pan cheesy potato dish is a perfect side.  Yep cheesy potatoes all made in one pan, and done in less time than it takes to bake some chicken. Lets talk potatoes Do you walk into the potato area of your grocery store and your head starts spinning at all the options?  I know mine has before.  Which one works best for baking, for roasting for pan frying? I found this chart not too long ago and I think it is so helpful when deciding which potato you should choose.  Potatoes are not just for baking anymore, but some potatoes are…

  • Fries without any frying…

    yep…you read that right.  I give you fries all done with any frying, even better they are primarily done on the grill. Fries any way, anytime… I love potatoes any way you give them to me, but I really, really love fries.  I mean is there anything better then a hot batch of fast food fries?  Maybe the non-fast food version…but still fries. I am that girl that will actually crave them, and The Hubby is that amazing guy who will actually go get them when I want them…he is so awesome. As much as I love fries I am not picky about the variety of fry…I love the original version and…

  • potatoes without the oven…YES I promise

    I just can’t stand turning on the oven in the summer.  It is just too hot here in Texas.  I mean the heat index today was like 110 degrees or something crazy like that.  Thank you Jesus that I work inside!! Even though it is summer… Even though it is summer The Hubby still wants his meat and potato dinners.  I am a fan of meat and potatoes, but it is so hot outside.  Can you hear the whine in my voice?  Yes, I am whining.  Since it is so hot outside I just can’t stand turning on my oven, especially to bake a potato…so it is time for the…
