  1. Very delicious and easy. I used gold potatoes instead of the red as that is what I had on hand. Turned out buttery and creamy.
  2. This is a great way to roast potatoes! I let them cook a little longer than specified and they were really delicious. Will definitely keep this recipe on my list for the future. Made for PRMR, November, 2013.
  3. This is such a simple yet delicious recipe! Used baby red potatoes and at the end of cooking sprinkled with fresh parsley. Definately one to make again and again and try with some different fresh herbs. Made in Memory of Pammyowl.
  4. I couldn't get red-skinned potatoes but these baby potatoes were equally delicious, and what a lovely simple way to prepare them! Thank you Pammy, these were very much enjoyed. Made in loving memory of a dear friend, never forgotten
  5. I used Baby Yukon Gold potatoes instead of the red. Delicious, creamy and buttery potatoes that I will be making again and again. Made for Pammy's cookathon.
