Amish Potato Salad

It's Spring, and eggs abound - but it's not chocolate eggs I'm craving. It's real eggs. I can't seem to wait for a summer picnic to have potato salad - that creamy combo of eggs and potatoes. 

Not recalling the exact recipe of my mother and grandmother I did some research and have found an easy version of a traditional Amish cooked dressing. Am loving it with the Easter ham!

Potato Gnocchi

These luscious little potato pillows melt in your mouth and can be combined with a variety of sauces and flavourings. Potato gnocchi were introduced in the 16th century, and the variations that developed over centuries make your head spin. I have made these successfully more times than I can remember and twice have made them with KB cooking friend LC - so I recommend them with confidence.

Roasted Salt and Vinegar Potatoes

This is a great way to prepare mini potatoes, be they new potatoes appearing at the market or those sold around the year in grocery stores. The method may strike you as bizarre - but try it once and you will be making it again and again. Is this a classic recipe from Colombia? from Syracuse? Read more to find out...

Mini Potato Gratin

These look so lovely and appetizing - and in fact they disappeared so quickly, I took this photo of the last one just in the nick of time. If serving family style, just watch the quick disappearing act as everyone dives in. For plated meals you may serve one or two per person. The original BBC Good Food recipe used only white potatoes, but I like to add some colour with sweet potatoes.

Potato Leek Soup

Am not sure who decides these things in the media, but just lately I keep bumping into articles stressing how great leeks are for our health - so I dusted off this Julia Child recipe. Much of the creaminess of this soup comes from the potatoes - though it can be enhanced with cream.

This is easy, fast, tasty and nutritious! Make it a winter staple!

Ever have a craving for tasty scalloped potatoes, but the thought of all that cream and cheese (and calories) is a turn-off?

This recipe comes to the rescue. Featuring caramelized onions, it is amazingly yummy, and can be prepped - or even baked - the day before - or earlier in the day for an evening meal with family or guests.
