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 . . .
We are major veggie lovers. My mom taught us to LOOOVE our veggies, and now all her kids do. I'm trying so hard to instill these veggie loving beliefs on my children. I make it a priority to cook a veggie every dinner and always plate them. Some of my kids may throw express unhappy feelings about vegetables but thats ok. I'll keep introducing them over and over. They'll grow to love them. Taste buds change, and so do attitudes. I plan on cultivating them into a veggie lovin fools.One tip my mom . . .
One thing I learned from my mom, who always a makes a famous potato salad, is the simpler the better. Potato salad can become a hodge podge of spices and add-ins- but it gets to be too much. They overpower the classic potato salad. Roll your eyes if you must- but I promise every time me or my mom make this we get asked for the recipe. Sometimes less is more, and even the pickiest of eaters will love this potato salad. This is the same recipe my grandma made, and her grandma made. I can . . .
Skewers are one of our favorite dinners! These rainbow steak skewers are really a staple at our house, and they are such a great way to eat the rainbow and your veggies! My mother-in-law gave me the greatest tip when it comes to cooking skewered food - skewer all of the one veggie or protein on one skewer. That way you can cook them evenly without burning the onions while cooking the steak. This way you can remove items sooner or later during your grill session and everything will come out . . .
This time of year I get all sorts of ideas for elaborate dinners, perfect presents, cookies baking in the oven, and a Pinterest-worthy decorated home. Let's get real for a second. No one can have all of those things and still sleep. For this reason I love meals like this rosemary chicken and potatoes. This entire meal is made in one pan! The meal turns out elegant and beautiful, while the prep time is around 10 minutes. When I make this Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes meal it is a huge hit! . . .
See, I had just had a baby. my third child. I was sore, tired, and an emotional postpartum wreck to say the least. Then my buddy shows up with dinner, and I probably cried. It was the best thing in the world. So really when I think of this recipe I am really full of overexagerated feelings of warm comfort food love for my dear Steph. I'll admit when she said she was bringing sheperds pie, this was not at all what I was thinking! When I think of Shepherd's Pie...I think leftover meat. Or . . .
Yearsandyearsandyears ago, Nate and I sat on our newly carpeted floor eating curry for the first time with our Japanese friends. We had no kids who would spill or make messes! Lucky us, our dear friends were also our neighbors. Naomi surprised us with dinner, bringing over bowls of hot rice, curry chicken and veggies for all of us. I remember taking a few bites of the curry, thinking man this is so good, how have I never tried curry before?- and looking up at Nate who looked at me the exact . . .
I love soup. Like really love soup. My husband doesn't have the same attitude...there are very few soups that he likes. But with this soup? He gobbled it right up! I got this recipe from my friend Trisha. One year she gave these cute cute soup bowls to all of us girls for Christmas along with her favorite soup recipes. Included in those recipes was this potato and ham soup. The recipe card was titled "The Best Potato Soup You've Ever Had." Certainly worth a try right? I am happy . . .

We've shown you how to make a mean turkey, creamy mashed potatoes and now you need the rich gravy to compliment both. Making gravy is incredibly simple and fast. There are many ways to make a creamy gravy, but for this post I'll focus on making gravy from turkey drippings. Just what would be expected at a Thanksgiving dinner! In my family we grew up on Sunday pot roast with mashed potatoes and gravy and homemade rolls. The gravy was always my favorite part. Well maybe the rolls were but the . . .
