      These potatoes were quite delicious! This was both a lovely and tasty side dish. The directions are very clear and accurate - I found them very easy to follow. I liked the blend of seasonings and especially loved the touch of fresh cilantro added at the end. I might add a touch of cayenne pepper next time to make them a little spicy as they were quite mild.

      Perfect. Just what I was craving today! The raisins seemed odd but were very tasty. I didn't use cilantro because i absolutely can't stand the stuff. Thank you for a delicious lunch!
