Cheesy Hashbrown Bites are a wonderful appetizer with cheese, bacon and potatoes. Great for an appetizer dinner or a party. If you don’t know Lucy, Jamie or I and haven’t read our about us page, you may not know that we all live in Idaho. Yes, the state with all the potatoes. Now if you were to say that to a Northern Idahoan, they would be irritated. They grow paper up there. Well really trees that they turn into paper. But Southern Idahoans grow potatoes and lot of them. Many of my friends growing up grew up on potato farms.
Italian Dressing, Potato, Tomatoes, & More combined for a delicious and easy casserole using leftover Thanksgiving Turkey. Got any leftover turkey already?? Probably not, since it’s not yet Thanksgiving. But it’s this week! And if you are anything like our family, you will have a bunch of leftover turkey! I like leftover turkey and don’t mind eating turkey sandwiches but I don’t want to eat only that! So I made up this casserole with turkey, Italian seasonings, and potatoes! The whole family enjoyed it and it was a wonderful weeknight dinner. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving whether you
40 Potato Recipes – Breakfast, Main Dish Dinners & Sides, Plus soups and salads; basically everything potato!! I love potatoes. I mean I grew up eating a lot of potatoes!! After all, we are Idaho girls. We ate a lot of potatoes. I’m sure it was because they were something she could buy fairly cheaply and something my dad loved to eat. My husband while not a Idahoan, also loves potatoes. Especially if it’s a meat and potatoes dinner. So I collected a bunch of potato recipes, some main dishes, some sides, some soups, and even some great breakfast recipes.
Hobo Packs are an easy way to cook a meal while camping. They are versatile in ingredients and can be cooked on a fire or a grill. A long time ago, I learned to make Hobo Packs, but haven’t made them again until recently. The Hardworking Husband loves them and I love them because they are quick and easy. In college, a group of girls would go camping for Mother’s Day weekend. Some years we froze and other years the weather was great. We had quite the adventure. One year it rained so hard before we went that the river
The Idaho Rancher Pizza is a delicious combination of chicken, bacon, ranch and potatoes! My family loves pizza. The other night I asked Baby Girl (who is almost 20 months old) if she was hungry for dinner, and she replied, “Pizza!” So obviously pizza’s a big deal around here. That’s why I’m always trying to come up with new variations. This one was inspired by a local pizza parlor that unfortunately went out of business. They had pizza by the slice, and one of their pizzas had potatoes and ranch on it, and we loved it. After I made this
This Slow Cooker Potato Soup is quick to throw together, and then it makes itself! I usually associate soups with fall, but the weather this year has been so strange that I think I’m off a bit. I know that half the country has been plummeted with snow. Here in Idaho, we normally get a lot of snow, but our winter has been so mild! And now the air has the same crisp feeling that is usually fall, so it felt like a soup day last week. Potato soup is one of my husband’s favorites. But we’ve been working on
I am back to making a Vintage Recipe. I have been wanting to get back this series for a while but things have been so hectic around here. Little Thing has kept me so busy. She is nearly walking and keeping me on my toes. I haven’t been able to get everything done that I would like to. But she is far more important that all those things. This recipe comes from the Good Housekeeping Cookbook with a copyright date of 1949. I was a little leery of it, but it was marked as a good one. I really
Taco Potatoes are a delicious meal that is super easy to prepare. The creaminess of a baked potato mixed with the flavors of a taco. I have mentioned before that Jamie, Lucy and I live in Idaho. And everyone knows Idaho is famous for potatoes. The Hardworking Husband and I are given a lot of potatoes. And I don’t think we are the exception. I think most people in our area are given a lot of potatoes. And if you don’t have enough potatoes, you can go glean the fields for more. Lots of potatoes are left in the field
I’ve eaten Shepherd’s Pie before, but I had never made it before. So of course, I looked up a recipe and followed it exactly. Haha, that’s not what I did at all. I seem to have a problem following recipes, I always substitute something or use more or less of something and make it how I think my family will like it best. In this case, I added in some Italian flavors to make this Italian Style Shepherd’s Pie. This recipe is based off of Kerry’s Shepherd’s Pie that she included in her Hamburger Vegetable Soup recipe post. But I
We don’t normally eat Easter brunch because we don’t have a sunrise service at our church and our normally in church during “brunch time.” Nor do we have brunch on Mother’s Day because we are also in church then.

I’ve rounded up 35 wonderful brunch recipes that you could use for Easter brunch, Mother’s Day brunch or really anytime!
