We love potatoes in all variations. Grilled, baked, fried, roasted, sauteed and more.

tastes delicious with any grilled or fried meat. Last night I served it with fried salmon,

Handy in the kitchen

This is what you do

  3. Pour the heavy cream over the potatoes.

    I couldn’t wait to try this out as it sounded so easy and it was!!! I am in Shanghai so it was a while since I had potatoes and this was delicious… Great recipes and all so very easy (and I’m a man ha ha) so I am having fun impressing my Chinese friends with what “I” can do with my microwave. 🙂
