Cook Eat Delicious!


Potatoes are more than just a starchy tuber. They are delicious starchy tubers! Okay, really, they are great. French fries, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, smashed potatoes, potato boats, potatoes au gratin, potato salad, and I am sure there are a lot more potato recipes that I can’t think of right now. My dear husband loves potatoes in curry. They soak up all the curry sauce and taste great. I love to cook potato boats because you can really load them up on way more cheese than they give you at the restaurants and add a super great amount of bacon too!

Loaded Potato Skins

Loaded Potato Skins (12)

Cheesy, creamy, with bacon and a little bit of spice…what I wish every meal could be. Loaded Potato Skins or potato boats, as some like to call them, are the ultimate appetizer. It is a mini version of meat and potatoes but loaded with cheese. Who doesn’t want that before the actual meal? The only thing I hate about ordering potato skins from restaurants is that there is never enough bacon, or cheese, or filling. I have had some sad potato skins, I still ate them…but they were definitely sad. The only way to lift my spirits and gain a few extra pounds was to make an easy recipe that had enough bacon and cheese to make anybody smile.

Delicious Rating: OMGoodness! I didn’t want to share these at all. The first mistake when cooking something super delicious: cooking for other people. DH and I could have devoured the whole lot of these potato skins but instead shared them with company. Dang you company!

I think this recipe is perfect. Seriously. I overdid it on the cheese and the bacon so that there was no want. I used green onions for a more subtle onion taste but with some greenery. This is now my go to recipe for potato skins. I change the level of spice on the skins coating and the filling depending on my mood, as can you. Plus, this recipe is super easy and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. Bake some up and let me know how they turned out for you!

Costa Rican Fish & Chips

Sitting on the beach, relaxing to the sound of the waves crashing on shore, and eating, eating very well. That was our delightful experience in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. We ate at a beach front restaurant called Lola’s. It offers fresh seafood and simple dishes full of flavor. Fresh fish on the beach is always a great experience and this was no exception. The fish is Tilapia and was moist and flavorful with a delicious crispy batter that it was fried in. It came with a side of coleslaw and fries or ‘chips’. The fish is definitely the star of the show. Full of Costa Rican flavors, the batter stays crispy not getting soggy at all. Check out the easy recipe for this Costa Rican fish after the jump!


Baked French Fries

I can’t resist good fries. The best french fries I have ever had were at Water World in Concord, Ca. The last time I was there may be over a decade ago! We used to get the garlic fries at one of the food stalls. You could smell them from the other side of the park and OMGoodness they were good. Hot with tons of minced garlic and infused garlic flavor. I swear they fried them in garlic oil. I always ordered more than one order since the lines were long and I didn’t want to go and wait for more. Good times. Good food.

But when you have homemade french fries…well, all I can think of is food bliss. I love deep fried fries but when cooking a complete meal, I pop those potatoes in the oven for some delicious oven baked french fries, a little more healthy too. This is such an easy recipe that you will get addicted to!

Delicious Rating: Yummy! This recipe combines Oregano, Cayenne, and a lot of other spices for some flavorful eating. My DH couldn’t stop eating them saying they were the best fries he ever had. Maybe he was hungry, maybe not because these were some good fries. I served them along side a vegan sloppy joe and slaw….yum!


Parsley Potatoes

 Tired of the same old side dishes? Don’t despair, Parsley Potatoes are here! Okay, that was corny but I couldn’t resist. I cooked meatloaf the other day and didn’t feel like making mashed potatoes or my typical meatloaf sides. The store had these cute little red potatoes so I bought a bag and some fresh parsley. This is an easy recipe with simple ingredients that never fails to please.

Delicious Rating: Cook up these bad boys with a hearty meat dish for a nice complete meal. They are buttered but you can use olive oil instead if you want. My DH said these were the best potatoes I have ever made…they were good but I think he was very hungry!
