Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Roasted Potato Salad!

Oh have mercy. This potato salad was soooo good.
I got the idea from my good friend Lisa's food blog.
But then I had to go and add a few twists of my own.
Whether you're a mustard based person or a mayonnaise based person, I think you are going to love this.
Just in time for Summer BBQ's.

3lb. Organic Potatoes of your choice. I used baking potatoes.
6 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2c. chopped onion
5TBS. Olive Oil
1/2 tsp. Thyme
1 TBS Rosemary
1 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper

1/4-1/3 cup Mayo (low fat)
2 TBS. Balsamic Vinegar
1 TBS Mustard
1TBS Basil
Now you can use fresh herbs but I didn't have any on hand and it was still delicious.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut potatoes into chunks.
Place potatoes into a medium size bowl.
Add the Olive Oil - Black Pepper and combine evenly with the potatoes.
Place the potatoes onto a rimmed cookie sheet. Try not to have any overlapping so they can cook properly.
Cook for about 20-25 mins. Check to see if done by inserting a fork and it going in with out any effort. And the potatoes should be a bit brown from roasting.

Meanwhile combine your dressing ingredients.
When the potatoes are done cooking let sit till cooled.
Put in a bowl and add your dressing.
Chill and serve.
Actually this was good warm too.

I'm not a big potato salad fan, but this sounds delish! I may have to give it a shot this summer!

Yay!! Glad you liked it so much and put your spin on it! It is yummy - I like your version too! I have a fresh rosemary bush in the front so I love using it in recipes, but I do often use dried herbs. Plus - not everybody enjoys rosemary. Good job my friend!
