“A perfect roast potato is one that is crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. If you have had problems getting it right in the past – here is how to do it.” – Clare
“My mash potatoes for Thanksgiving were a smash according to my two grandsons. My youngest grandson said these are the best mash potatoes ever and my oldest said yes Grandma I agree. My youngest grandson said you must give me this recipe Grandma; I am serious. I just look at them with such a smile on my face. It bought such warmth to my heart, to see how they enjoyed Granny’s Creamy Mash Potatoes! WOW, that’s wonderful compliments coming from a six and a seven-year-old.” – Aprie
“I was going to make these each little individual smashed potatoes but decided I didn’t care if they all broke up into one big pile. The idea was to oven roast them with herbs and olive oil after par-boiling them. Just even to crisp up the skins and get the flavor of the herbs cooked inside them. Cooking them this way allows you to serve them family-style. off the hot pan. They are delicious and so easy to make.” – Annette
“Hasselback potatoes sound hard to make, but they’re actually just an easy and fancy baked potato. As the potatoes bake, the slices fan out and allow for melted butter and seasonings to seep inside. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.” – Kitchen Crew

“Juet is pronounced like foot but with a J” My great-grandmother brought this recipe from Belgium when she happily graced our shores slightly before the 1900s. She, my grandmother, and my mom loved to make it. My sibs and I even liked it cold and shared it with our friends.” – Marlene
“One more recipe from that little tin box I found high on a shelf today. I only recall making these once, when I first got the recipe from a magazine – what, 20 years ago? Don’t know why I haven’t ever made them again.” – Susan
