Fire Roasted Corn and Potatoes

Sometimes, we get so caught up in creating perfect recipes, we forget about the simple things in life.   My mother was famous around here for saying “I like plain food.”    Sometimes, this statement annoyed me, but as I write this, on the anniversary of her birth, I realize that she was right.    Today’s post was supposed to be about grilling corn, but as I began to write the post, I remembered a time when our family was whole,  and I realized something.  My mother was right.   Plain food can be very nice, indeed.  Corn on the cob is one of […]

Grilled Potatoes

If you’ve never tried grilled potatoes, you need to add them to your next summer barbecue.  These potatoes are perfectly seasoned, and the light carmelization that grilling adds to their flesh makes them irresistibly delicious.  These idea for these grilled potatoes actually started with a potato salad.   I saw a delicious recipe for grilled potato salad a few weeks ago.  The recipe looked and sounded delicious, but what intrigued me more that the potato salad was the idea of grilling potatoes.  We love potatoes around here.  Baked potatoes are a favorite with Sue Chef and Bus Boy, and   […]

Slow Cooker Pot Roast and Potatoes

Regular visitors to this site might remember my review of the complete pork chop dinner in a crock pot.   My vegetables were over cooked, the pork chops were dry, but the sweet potatoes were delicious.   In my summary, I said I would experiment with potatoes in the crock pot and that next time, I would try using a pork roast instead of chops.   I still hadn’t tried that experiment, but  I knew that I was going to have a very busy day today.    I decided to  make my favorite three ingredient pot roast in the crock pot and try […]

Aside from being inexpensive and versatile, potatoes are also loaded […]
