Mashed potato stuffed meatloaf

"Potato Patata" 

I can’t recall seeing meatloaf served without a side of mashed potatoes and gravy. So why not just stuff the meat loaf with mashed potatoes to begin with? That’s what I did in this post; a very cool way to combine two dishes into one.

Spicy Chicken fried potato wedges

"Potato Patata" 

When I say spicy, I don’t mean peppery I mean full of spices. I basically took every herb I had at the time and threw them at the potatoes. They turned out pretty good, crunchy,  hot and flavorful. Anyone who love potato wedges might want to give this recipe a try.

Sweet potato Onion and chia seed buns

"Potato Patata" 

I am really sorry to disappoint everyone who came here thinking they would find a burger recipe. Nope its potato month remember? So what you will find here, is a really awesome recipe for a sweet potato onion bun with chia seeds.  I finally decided to do a labor intensive potato recipe, and by labor intensive I mean a recipe using yeast and flour, my two culinary enemies.

Sweet potato and pimento cheese pasta bake

"Potato Patata" 
 A few days ago I made a pimento cheese dip without realizing it. Or I made a cousin to the pimento cheese; I didn’t use pimento peppers, I used regular red bell peppers and I roasted them. Our church opened a small library and my mother asked me to make some refreshments. So I made a spinach cheese dip a roasted red pepper cheese dip and some ginger bbq chicken tenders. That roasted red pepper cheese dip (aka pimento cheese dip) has reincarnated itself into this baked pasta dish and it is fabulous.

What’s simpler than a bowl of flavorful creamy mashed potatoes? Sometime we can get so carried away with this dish we forget that’s in its simplest form it’s also very delicious. Let’s take it back to the basics today with a flavorful staple that everyone already knows how to make. If you can boil water you can make a delicious bowl of mashed potatoes.

Potato bacon egg and cheese hash

"Potato Patata" 

What do you do on a Saturday morning when you wake up and have the task to make breakfast or three hungry mouths? You make the breakfast hash of champions. This breakfast was soooooo good. Last Saturday I made a huge pot of this, everyone was so hungry that I could barely get pics of the food. It’s a real hearty meal that will have you full the entire day.

Rosemary garlic sweet potato rice

"Potato Patata" 

This month it’s all about potatoes. Potatoes are one of the most versatile starches out there.  You can do any and everything with them. Have you ever mixed it with rice? This is seriously a carbohydrates overload but it’s a really good recipe.

Banana bread pudding with cinnamon streusel


It’s the final recipe for May. No this is not bread pudding made from banana bread (that's coming soon) this is bread pudding with the addition of bananas. Yes, believe it or not, I’m adding another bread pudding recipe to the blog. I think this is like the fourth one. There is the hazelnut bread pudding, the breakfast bread pudding with pears, and the cheesy chocolate brioche bread pudding. Who knew bread pudding was so versatile?

Pan roasted hen with curry shallot and sage pan sauce


Its yummy time,  I am a huge fan of Cornish hen, game hens, quails and small birds in general. I think they are a lovely addition to the dinner rotation. I always try to cook the hens in different ways. This time is about to get curried, but curried with shallots and sage. This was a really good recipe I can’t even lie. It was the last meal I made before heading off to New York for two weeks.
