  1. Thanks Barb for one of those simple recipes that works so well. We halved the recipe and after putting it all together, held it in the oven for about 5 minutes-the potatoes soaked up all the yummy garlicky cream! I should add that we used the lightest cream available (18% fat) and it worked perfectly.
  2. This was so simple and so elegant. I added a small amount of crushed, dried rosemary to enhance the flavor and it was great. I can't wait to re-heat the leftovers--I'll bet the flavor has soaked through even more. It's so easy to roast heads of garlic and the flavor is so good. Thanks for a great new side dish!!
  3. If you have a few extra minutes to roast the garlic for this recipe, you will be in for a real treat! So delicious, and so easy! -My toddler loved these potatoes and they even taste great the next day!


Zaar...Wow, what a place! I'm one of the old timers of Zaar. I can't count the number of wonderful dishes I cooked in the past few years since joining. Along the way I have had the pleasure of meeting several Zaar chefs. Talk about your fruits and nuts! lol. I have enjoyed meeting them all. Family: What's to say...I have had the same sweet husband forever (Good thing....I'd hate to have to break a new one in...=) and live close to a couple of grown children. (Maybe you've met Smoke Alarm Jr. ..her brown rolls are sooo good!) Therefore, my family gets together often to enjoy each other's company and cooking. My greatest joy is six "little to tallerthanme" kids running around calling me Grammy. They wear me out! lol For the past thirty years I have been a Special Education teacher for grades 9-12 and love it. Took some time off last year to recovery from surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer. (Loved the radiation....I keep imagining that we are absolutely napalming the nasty cancer cells tohellandback to keep the little suckers from returning. =) My prognosis is good and now "I'm back in the saddle again". lol. Being a north country "gurl", I am happiest outside...walking, fishing, sitting in front of an outdoor fire or being on water (although in February it's a bit stiff....=0) When indoors I like to read, garden, knit, quilt and paint. During cold Maine weather I like to warm my feet on a very large ( 100 pounds of long legs and huge feet), sweet and furry golden retriever named Kerry (aka KTBRD: Kerry the big red . In the summer, the dawg and I round up the grandkids, hit the local dairy bar for a Mounds Sundae that is to die for!!!=0) . Then spend a lot of long and lazy summer days at camp . All in all...Boy, Life is good! =)
