Garlic Roast Potatoes

Side Dish Superstar!!

What a busy day! I have so many things to be thankful for, but most of all I am thankful for my wonderful family. I chose Nigella's Garlic Roast Potatoes as my Side Dish Superstar. They were absolutely delicious... I just wish I would have gotten a better picture before they disapeared.

Garlic Roast Potatoes


Ingredients
3 pounds maincrop potatoes (I used red potatoes)
1/3 cup regular olive oil
1 head garlic
Kosher salt
 
Directions
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Wash and dry the potatoes, and cut them into about 3/4-inch dice. Toss in a large oven tray and pour over the oil, smulching around with your hands to mix well. Separate the head of garlic into cloves adding them to the tray, and roast for about 1 hour, turning once or twice during that time, until crispy and golden but still soft on the inside. When they're done, remove to a large plate and sprinkle with salt.

  2. I love a recipe that contains a whole head of garlic! This is why Nigella is so wonderful!
    Love the smulching, I don't believe I have smulched in a while. ;-)

  3. I agree with Natashya, one whole head of garlic equals lots of flavor! Sounds like a winner.

Fried Cabbage

Happy New Year Y'all! It's a tradition to eat black eyed peas and cabbage on new years... for luck and prosperity.

 I did a little research this morning and this is what I found.

For New Years, pork represents health and wealth, and continued prosperity. Some say also that a pig also represents progress - since pigs pretty much can't just look backward without completely turning around, so a pig represents forward progress.

The tradition of black-eyed peas for southerners is believed to have originated back during Civil War times when Sherman's soldiers raided southern homes, taking virtually all of the food and burning the crops, but mostly ignoring the fields of black-eyed peas, because they thought them to be food for the livestock and of no value otherwise. As one of the few food sources left to sustain the people and the southern soldiers, those black-eyed peas came to represent good fortune.

The black-eyed peas represent coins, cabbage represents paper money and corn…

Spaghetti Pie

I've seen spaghetti pie recipes numerous times. But they all use the spaghetti as a crust and then cover it will toppings like a pizza. The "crust" looks dry and unappealing so I've never tried it until I came across this recipe for Hillbilly Spaghetti Pie on Mommy's Kitchen. I chose to omit the name Hillbilly because that isn't a name that is synonymous with Texas. Southern yes, hillbilly no. Now that we have the official new name for this recipe, we can proceed with the goodness!!

Ingredients:
1/2 - cup onion, chopped
2 - tablespoons olive oil
1/2 - pound ground beef
1/2 - pound sweet Italian sausage
2-garlic cloves, minced
1 - (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1/4 - teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 - tsp Italian seasoning
1 - tablespoon sugar
1 - teaspoon salt (or to taste)
2 - cups water
8 - ounces thin spaghetti, broken into 3 inch pieces (not angel hair)
1/4 - cup heavy whipping cream
1 - teaspoon dried basil
1/2 - cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
2 - cups grat…

Comfort in a Cup - Minty Rich Cocoa

Weekend mornings are my chance to have me time; to sit with a cup of coffee and enjoy the silence; to think of things to make for my sweeties. This morning I decided to wake them up with a scrumptiously decadent cup of Minty hot chocolate.
Ahhh, the weekend.

My sweeties are asleep

and I've got a little time to spare.

(ok, not sure what's going on here... I've already picked him up off the floor once)




Minty Rich Cocoa
1 1/2 cups powdered nondairy creamer
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup milk chocolate chips
peppermint sticks divided (crushed for mix and whole for stiring)

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. (this makes a lot so have a container handy to store the rest)

Place 1/4 cup cocoa mix into a cup and add 3/4 cup boiling water... stir and enjoy! Now go wake those kids up.
