    I’m trying those potatoes this weekend! Thanks!


    • Edyta, be sure and let me know how you like them. I’m missing your comments! What are you reading these days.

        Ok so the potatoes were awesome. I made 2 batches of them, as I made the pork (for my parents as they do not eat tofu). I think the pork was a bit dry as I was trying to make sure it was done and do not have experience with any meat. They all said it was good. I loved the potatoes that I had. Delicious. Will make them again.
        I read your blog on my phone and commenting is on it is really annoying since the latest update :(. I just finished A Vintage Affair which was not great at all. Very chick lit. Now I am reading The Farm by T R Smith. It is a bookclub pick and so far it’s good. I got the Romain title you reviewed recently. I will give it a go after I finish this one. I have to broaden my HR horizons 🙂


        • I’m so glad you liked the potatoes. They are super easy with the microwave head start. I do believe I panned the Vintage Affair book but liked the Theresa Romain book. It’s good to hear from you, especially since it seems difficult on your phone. 🙂
