Here is an easy way to dress up brussel sprouts. If you like brussel spourts this is for you. I can't promise to make you love brussel sprouts if you don't already but I do encourage you to try them this way. Fresh sprouts make a difference.
A great way to use left over mashed potatoes. I made this up just for that reason, but they sure are yummy. If you don't have leftover mashed potatoes, make your favorite mashed potatoes and refrigerate until cold. Make sure the mashed potatoes are seasoned already. The yield on this is an estimation.
This is a simplified version of a Swedish potato recipe. I modified it from a recipe in the book called "Potatoes". The flavor is a little unusual but in a really good way. Fresh bay leaves work best in this recipe but dry leaves are just fine. You'll need 2 wooden chopsticks, not from your good set.
