We LOVE potatoes, and why not?  They are a great source of vitamins and minerals.  We fry them, boil them, and bake them, but rarely celebrate them.  While many Americans load them with cream and butter, here are many ways that I let their earthy goodness shine through.

Mix all types of potatoes with skins on, add chopped red onions, sprinkle with rosemary, add salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.  Bake at 400 until crisp.

Potato Pizza:  Potato pizza has a special place in my heart. This simple rustic pizza made with just a few basic ingredients (no tomato sauce) is pretty impossible to find in restaurants. It’s thin, crispy, crunchy and addictive.
