This is one of my tastebud crash dummies’ highly recommended side dishes – stewed sweet peppers. It’s a really simple dish. What you need most experience in, is waiting. Stewed sweet peppers take time to create, but the pay off is great. This side dish looks and tastes amazing.
Now that the weather is getting chilly and it will soon be cold in New York, instead of eating my brunch time favorite meal, smoked salmon scramble, on toast, I skip the bread and go for these babies, rosemary roasted potatoes.
Roasted potatoes and shallots are easy to create and will simplify your Sunday dinners. Just season them with salt and herbs, drizzle with olive oil and pop them in the oven, and let the heat do the work. These roasted potatoes and shallots will take some of the stress out of creating a celebration dinner and allow you to concentrate on a sexy meat, fish or vegetable dish that will wow your guests.
I’m tired of peeling, cutting and watching potatoes boil just to arrive at a simple mash. I love mashed potatoes but the traditional recipe is a little long-winded, especially when you are only making mash for two.
So long as you’re not opposed to microwaves, my simple mashed potatoes is an easier recipe and in my opinion tastes much better. No more lumpy waterlogged potatoes, this mash is smooth and easy and can be amped up into a spectacular side dish in minutes. Add cheese, scallions, bacon, whatever you enjoy in your mashed potatoes. You can also swap out regular potatoes for yams/sweet potatoes.
