Crispy And Buttery Golden Potatoes

02 August 2013

I like to think that I'm a lady of many trades....

I LIKE to think does not in fact mean it's true.

But when I find something I matter what it is...usually I dive into it prettttty whole heartedly.

Well the same goes for recipes I love. When I find something I really like that's easy to make, well lets just say that makes me one happy mama.

This recipe is almost too easy. There are almost no ingredients and most of those ingredients many households have on hand at all times. WONDERFUL.

Count my ass in.

So here it is:


1 Bag of Golden Potatoes
3 Tablespoons of Butter
1 Can of Chicken Broth
Garlic Salt, Salt, & Pepper to Taste

This Recipe is so easy you can't really mess it up to be honest.

So first you need to wash the potatoes and cut them into good sized chunks, I cut mine into about 6 pieces.

Place them along with the butter into a deep pan (preferably cast iron as I'm sure they would cook and crisp much better but a standard nonstick pan worked equally as well for me). Now each potato should touch the pan on at least one side, that will work best for when were in the browning state, this is why the amount of potatoes to use can vary slightly. I used less than 1 bag for this recipe.

Add chicken broth or stock half way up the pan, which was about half a can for me, salt (easy on the salt because its a fairly salty dish) ,pepper, and garlic salt, place a cover on the pan at medium to high heat and let cook for about 15 minutes or until tender.

Remove the cover and allow the remainder of the broth to evaporate for 15-20 minutes.

Once all the liquid had been cooked out allow the potatoes to brown on each side.


Delicious, super flavorful, crispy, buttery, savory, easy-peasy potatoes. A PERFECT side for any chicken dish and makes about 4 servings.

Try it and let me know what you think!


Garlic Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

30 April 2013

Aren't you glad you waited for this? Trust are. These little pieces of heaven are worth a try. And SO simple. If I can do it...ANYBODY can. De-freaking-licious. So what you will need:

3-4 medium red potatoes, cut into small wedges
3 TBS olive oil
1/3 C parmesan cheese
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp paprika
sea salt to taste

Now this is the recipe as listed at
It may be my taste but I do NOT need to add salt...between the garlic salt and how salty parmesan is, it was totally unnecessary for me. Also, it says that this serves 2-3...not true. These are way too delicious to only serve 2-3 people meaning I always make more than the recommended serving. SO here's how we make these life-altering, mind numbing, yummy pieces of awesome.

Wash those bad boys up. They grew in the ground...and never got washed. So unless you like dirt on your potatoes, give those babies a bath.

And Here are your ingredients.

Cut your potatoes like so

They'll look like this once chopped. Then put your chopped potatoes in a bowl with the olive oil and mix.

Mix together your dry ingredients and dump that shit on the potatoes and toss and mix it all together. This is when the magic starts to happen. These ingredients smell like heaven on freakin earth.

Throw them on a baking sheet and in the oven at 425. Make sure they are in a single layer. Put them in for 25 mins then turn them over (which I am still working on exactly how to make them not stick) for another 10 and then prepare your tastebuds for THIS awesomeness:

Once I can figure out how the hell to make them not stick it'll be perfect. But these pictures do ZERO justice to how they taste. OH MY LANTA. They are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside and the flavor is just out of this world. If you do not try them...I PROMISE you will regret it and it will haunt you for all of eternity. Go ahead, you know you wanna try em ;) And when you do let me know what you think!
