Romano-Lime Potatoes

Lime on anything is wonderful–including potatoes. Really. A few weeks back I shared my family’s latest drumstick recipe, Raspberry BBQ Drumsticks. For that meal I made Zucchini Pie paired and Romano-Lime potatoes. It was a simple, economical meal to serve and best of all, the kiddos loved it. The recipe was adapted from a 2003 Taste of Home Quick Cooking cookbook recipe. This week if you’re looking for a fun alternative to the usual potato dish, give this flavorful recipe {Read More}

Loaded Scalloped Potatoes

Lemon Bright Potatoes

Of course that’s plain and we all know plain potatoes just don’t cut it. Lemon potatoes are surprisingly simple and yes, healthy when you consider there is {Read More}
