  1. Made these for a late evening Valentine's Day dinner with DH; put them on to biol while I put baby DS to sleep. These were quick and easy to make, looked fancy and weren't overly flavored. They had a light lemon flavor. Did add a little salt to the finished product; may add a few onions next time too. Made for Healthy Choices Tag Feb 2010.
  2. Very Good. We really enjoyed the lemon and chive flavor. We decreased the amount of butter the second time around (1/4 to 1/3 cup). It didn't make a difference in the taste, but made them a little more healthy. Just writing this post makes me hungry...Maybe we should heve them for dinner again.
  3. Thanks so much for sharing MaeEast. We really enjoyed these tasty little potatoes. The mild lemon, butter and chive flavour goes perfectly with meat and seafood dishes making this the perfect side dish for me.
  4. I made these for my zaar dinner tonight. These were very good, DH really liked them, but I think I will try some added onion as suggested by OhMyStars. I liked the chives in this recipe
  5. I absolutely love the baby red potatoes and this is an excellent way to make them. So easy and so delicious. I love peeling the strip off the potatoes; makes for a very nice presentation on the plate. I wish I had some chives, but I had to settle for fresh parsley this time. Thanks for posting this great recipe, Mae.
