  1. Just made Ina's hash browns. Good. Be careful with the salt. Tasty but should be done not on medium low like she says for 20 minutes, should be higher. I only had problem of pan getting pretty messy. (An all-clad stainless steel 4 quart saute pan). Has to be soaked. Used 1 to 2 tablespoon chopped green onion and Italian flat parsley at end. I used 4 big potatoes and 1 big onion. Be very careful that you don't put too much butter. Linda
  2. I make these all the time for breakfast. No need to buy frozen hash browns with this fabulous recipe!
  3. Super easy recipe with excellent results - Golden outside and still moist inside. I rinsed the diced potatoes in cold water to prevent discoloring.Paper towel dried them and then fried over med high heat ThanksBri22 it a keeper
  4. I served this with Barefoot Contessa's Challah French Toast. Another wonderful recipe. I didn't change a thing, and hubby and I really enjoyed it. Thanks for posting!


I am a mother of my 5 year old beautiful, sweet boy! And a 2 year old gorgeous little girl! I am very fortunate to be able to stay home with them. Yeah I thrive for adult conversation but that's what 'zaar is for right?! I would love to go back to school someday for either interior design, or business and culinary school to start up my own bakery or catering business, or even photography. That would be my dream come true! I married my best friend on June 22, 2003. DH works allllll day(60 hours a week) 5 days a week so I dont get to see him as much as I wish but that's why I cook dinner and treasure dinner time. It's our time to unwind together. We love watching movies together. He's a Star Wars and Lord of the Rings nerd. I love them too but don't admit it often or I will have to watch them every day! I'm a feminest, which it turns out I have been since birth, but my best friend going to school for woman's studies and sharing her knowledge, amplifies it.I would love to see a world where my children aren't condemmed to the gender rolls we give them. My Mom is an amazing cook and I picked up cooking from her, but I really am self taught. I love to experiment and try new things. I'm like a Jewish or Italian mom, forcing people to try everything I make and I don't take "no" for an answer! The whole saying that you are either a cooker or a baker is so not true, I am both! My best friend is a cooker and baker too she makes the best cake you could ever taste! (she won't post the me!!)but she makes some killer meals too! I just love getting a ton of ingredients out, make a appetizer, a meal with three or four parts to it,and then bake a kick a$$ dessert to follow, clean up and have all your family and friends grab a big dish and stuff yourselves, the feeling you get when you finally sit down is, to me, comparible to sex!
