Crispy Crushed Potatoes with Preserved Lemon | Fresh Tart

Apparently potatoes are the most-consumed vegetable in the US, thanks to fast food French fries. I’d put fries in my top five most favorite foods, but that statistic still depresses the starch out of me. As someone who spent my teen years eating more than my fair share of McDonald’s fries, I’m glad to say…

Hash Browns

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 29, 2013 at 1:56pm

As I put together this post, I took a quick little poll on Facebook, asking for my friends’ top three favorite foods. I was assuming that crispy potatoes in their various forms would solidly make the list. I can’t be alone in my obsession with salty french fries, roasted potatoes, or potato chips…right? Not right!…

Green Goddess Potato Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 5, 2012 at 11:21am

Here’s a potato salad to make all season long, with whatever fresh herbs you have on hand. The creamy, tangy dressing requires nothing more than a quick whir in the blender and ta da! – a bowlful of bright green deliciousness that had me eating it straight from the bowl, goddess-style. Here’s also a potato…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 15, 2012 at 3:18pm

A potato galette is simply thin slices of potatoes, fat, and seasoning layered into a shallow pan and roasted until crusty and browned. It’s traditional to serve alongside a roast of some sort, and definitely do that, because you can imagine crusty, buttery potatoes do a fine job of soaking up meaty juices of almost…

Thanksgiving kicked off when my dad pulled up to the house last Tuesday afternoon, fresh from a quail hunt in Tennessee. My stepmom Susanna flew in a few hours later from Sheridan, Wyoming, their now home. My house and kitchen were immediately improved. Dad sharpened my knives and starting halving and marinating quail in buttermilk…

I’m Back with…Crash Hot Potatoes

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 20, 2010 at 6:44pm

It has bothered me that I didn’t snap a pic of The Pioneer Woman Crash Hot Potatoes I made on July 4th.  I know…I’m weird.  But there it is, and here I am, and now I have a pic of the potatoes. Which is good, since I’ve made them three times since July 4th.  What…

Happy Belated Passover, Easter

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 6, 2010 at 10:54am

Oh look, I missed both holidays.  I usually relish cooking Kosher for Passover treats for my stepdaughter, as well as coloring Easter eggs and making brunch for my son.  A trip to Seattle and illness (see below) wiped out both opportunities this year. Instead, on Sunday, I made a potato-pepper hash with baked eggs for…
