  1. This made a great potato side to serve with recipe #61659. The recipe was reduced to 3 servings with leftovers being used in eggs the following morning for breakfast. The carrots were baby cut carrots that were cut into thin strips and the smallest potatoes I could find needed cutting in quarters. The recipe goes together quickly and looks very colorful.
  2. Enjoyed these potatoes a lot! I thought I had more than a pound of new potatoes peeled so I doubled the butter, tomato paste, and dill mixture. Used fresh dill, 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, and baby carrots that I sliced. Next time I would add a little more dill and not cook my potatoes until the broke when I inserted a fork. The carrots were tender crisp and the potatoes browned a bit, the butter mixture is definitely a winner. I did add a sprinkle of fresh ground pepper and kosher salt, cooked in my electric skillet, and served with Lainey6605's Recipe #192725. Thank you so much MarraMamba for posting this great potato recipe.
  3. Very nice concoction! Served with a grilled chicken, and a great meal was had by all! Didn't have baby potatoes, used Yukon Gold and diced as suggested. Lovely color combination, and that sauce is quite the tasty little thing! I would NEVER have thought to put dill and tomato paste together, but wow--it was really good! Nice surprise!!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
