potato frittata

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is or what the weather is like, a weekend doesn’t go by without friends and family over for brunch at my house. Laughter in the air, kids playing at your feet, and enough amazing food for everyone — just does your soul good. You can pretty much always find a frittata on my brunch table and my frittatas are usually never without potatoes. Eggs and potatoes have always been a happy couple; just ask the beloved breakfast taco. One of my favorite frittatas, especially during the cool fall to winter months, is


I have some exciting news friends! You’ve followed my Copper River Salmon addiction for a year now. We’ve roasted it, garlic poached it, glazed it with an Alaskan Amber maple reduction, cedar planked it, and even fried it into delicious fluffy bites of amazingness (see all CRS recipes) — and now after all of this time we’re going FISHING!!!! Join me as I take my camera and sock monkey slippers to Cordova, Alaska next week July 15-20, as we meet our favorite Copper River Salmon fishermen and women on the open waters. I’ll be fishing, hopefully seeing my first live salmon,

You can’t tell me this hasn’t happened to you as well!

St. Paddy’s day is this weekend and Dallas is prepping for their big parade that I live right next too. So, I’m preparing for traffic, a sea of green, and stepping over the occasional drunk leprechaun. I’m also seeing lots of cabbage and potato recipes floating around the web-a-verse and that’s just making me obscenely hungry. Being that I am not Irish (at least I don’t think I am—I’m adopted so who the heck knows where my ancestry lies) I’m not going to give you an “Irish” recipe because I would seriously not know what I was talking about. Now,

dijon potatoes

Golden brown potato wedges with a creamy tangy dressing just sounds like the perfect summer side doesn’t it? I found this irresistible recipe on and couldn’t resist pairing it with a maple beer glazed roasted salmon for dinner last night. The flavors were fantastic and the brightness of the sauce made for a perfect dinner — not to mention a great side for a summer picnic this afternoon! Serve hot, warm, or even cold — this recipe is going in the “keep” file! find the recipe here: Roasted Potato Salad with Creamy Dijon Vinaigrette

Shhh. Be still my beating heart. What? I said shhh. The photo explains it all. Soft velvety potatoes with just a little bite. Cooked slowly to absorb the cheesy creamy goodness of it all. Who doesn’t like scalloped potatoes? These little individual portions are intensly delicious with creamy parmesan and fresh thyme.
