This may sound silly but these cheesy potato fries helped put this blog, Oh So Delicioso on the map. Years ago (2012) I pinned this recipe and while it floated around on pinterest for a few months and nothing happened one day I woke up to an email in my inbox. She said she had pinned our recipe AND featured it on her blog. Then made this comment- hello dearie! Heads up! I've featured your recipe here and as of right now your recipe has been repinned more than 1100+ times (whoot whoot) I . . .
These Baked Potato Skins are ALWAYS and major hit! Total MAN food. I made them for a football party recently and the guys guzzled these things down, not to mention the ladies that attended... These are great as an appetizer, a side dish or for a party, like the superbowl! Honestly though what is not to like? These are all worth the calories! Baked Potato Skins are pretty fast and easy to make, in fact I usually make baked potatoes the night before- using the insides for dinner and save the . . .
We went to law school in Moscow. Moscow Idaho. not "Moss-cow" but moss-coe idaho. (Don't get it wrong up there or they'll start calling you a cow and all sorts of nonsense) It's a teeny tiny hippy town. Held together by an engineering company and the college, right on the Washington/Idaho border. It's also the best town ever. I dreaded moving there- living in a town there are very little options for any kind of shopping or activities or eating, and yet, when it came time to leave I was beyond . . .
My husband works in the big city. He commutes on the train in, takes a subway to a LA skyscraper, works long hours and then goes back to his train to come home. During certain times of the year he works such long hours that he receives a budget for a food allowance. There is pretty amazing food in the city. Sometimes I'm lucky enough that he brings home half of the meal. S'mac n Cheese from the Nickel Diner is one meal I beg for him to bring home. It's the best mac n cheese you'll ever . . .
I had a really lovely Thanksgiving this year. We're watching our niece all week while my sister and brother-in-law carelessly fleeted off to the Caribbean to prance around blissfully child-free. Bless them. And us. So despite the crazy factor, we fried our own turkey (two, actually) which was one of the best decisions I believe I've ever made. Ranks right up there next to deciding to accept the rock my now-husband gave me when he proposed, but that is neither here nor there. He's too dreamy, I . . .
ok, YES! Happy Cinco de Mayo!! but we blasted you with all our current Cinco recipes last week, that today, instead of more mexican inspired dishes, we give you TOTAL American. Hows that, eh? eh? REALLY what happened is that our post with a fellow blogger fell through- stinking technology. But, sometime soon you'll see it. (if you need a list of cinco de mayo recipe ideas, scroll to the bottom and click on the link) ok, go ahead and take a break from your diet and sit down and eat . . .
Anyone else here a fan of Jim Gaffigan?... "What makes breakfast in bed so special is your are laying down eating BACON. The most wonderful thing on earth. Bacon is the best. Even the frying of bacon sounds like applause...ahhhhhh Do you want to know how good bacon is? To improve other foods, they wrap it in bacon. If it weren't for bacon, we wouldn't know what a waterchesnut is! ..and those bits of bacon are like fairy dust. You don't want that baked potato? prrring! now it . . .
Twice baked potatoes are so AWESOME. I love the variety of things we can do for potatoes, so when you are getting tired or the regular ol' mashed potatoes and gravy give these a try. They can really go with any other side, or salad or meat you have planned. they are such a hit with all types of people- they can be gluten free, vegetarian, men love them, women love them. KIDS devour them. Seriously people. why wouldn't you? plus- they are one of those things where a little goes a long way.. I'll . . .
