If you’re looking for a striking side dish or appetizer that will impress your guests, try these Mini Hasselback or Hasselhoff’s as I am starting to call them now. The first time I made these a few weeks ago I was doing an Instagram Live video and accidentally called them Hasselhoffs and that caught on and now that’s what I call them, jokingly. These would be perfect for next weeks Game Day party for sure. These were featured on Food and Wine Instagram account today, so you know they are good. (more…)

Easy meals have been my go to lately with school starting up again. I like to keep a few packages of the Private Selection Gnocchi in my pasta drawer, you can find them in the pasta isle at Fred Meyers. I used one of my new favorite non stick pans for this recipe, Calphalon 3-Quart Saute Pan, recently got this as part of a complete set for a steal from my local Kroger store, Fred Meyer.

Everyone should adopt a latke into their recipe rotation. (Because what’s not to love about fried potato pancakes?) The trick, whether you’re making them for Easter, brunch with friends or otherwise, is to get them super crispy.

This is a simple recipe to adapt to add your favorite things like zucchini, sweet potato, apples, carrot and or other veggies you might like more, the possibilities are endless. But I do hope you try my version out. (more…)
