  1. Very good base if made as is. However, the second time around I added some salt and pepper, onion powder and paprika to the potatoes, as well as approx. 1/2 cup parmesan cheese halfway through cooking time. It was very yummy!!
  2. Perfectly wonderful...I was short on time so I pre-boiled my potatoes (cut into same-size chunks) for about 15 minutes in salted water, drained, then dumped them in a buttered baking dish and topped them with the recipe ingredients. I melted the butter and poured it evenly over the potatoes and I used fresh parlsey, about 1/2 c. finely chopped. I also salted the potatoes and peppered them liberally before popping them into the oven. They only needed 30 minutes roasting time and came out fabulous!
  3. I also used DoubleA's Mom's tip and made them that much better! :) Also boiled them for 15 minutes before baking... nice.
  4. Always looking for a good potato recipe. Garlic and potatoes, you know it's going to be good! Didn't change anything!
  5. This recipe is VERY yummy!


  1. Great recipe. I used green onion instead of parsley and it turned out great. Thanks.


I work as a professional stagehand for my local union (IATSE Local 26, West Michigan Stagehands), which takes me all over the state and lets me meet all sorts of interesting people. My primary training is in lighting and wardrobe, and I can be found backstage at everything from rock concerts to opera/ballet/symphony/Broadway tour performances to hockey games to corporate meetings and Presidential appearances. In June of 2005, my Local elected me to serve as a delegate to our International convention in mid-July, which was held in Honolulu. In November of 2008, I was elected to my third three-year term as Recording Secretary of my union local. Currently, I am the news poster for www.megatechnews, a computer tech site affiliated with several other tech sites. My biggest passion is union activism. The more I get involved, the more I want to be involved. I also read like a fiend and enjoy "discovering" local or regional bands at local clubs. Recently, I started making jewelry again after a more than ten-year hiatus. It started as a project for Christmas presents, but doing it reminded me how much I enjoy it, so I may be resurrecting my business soon. I never duplicate a piece, because the entire point is that I do custom work, and will take orders to suit. The pieces I have done are in a photo album on Facebook located here:
