  1. These are fine roasted potatos with a spicy kick, but not transcendent. Toasting the spices in oil first seems like an unnecessary step since they all get mixed together and heated in the pan. I've tried it both ways and haven't tasted a difference.
  2. It does not get any better! Loved it. Update: I forgot to mention that I only used 2 dried chilies and it was hot enough. If I used 6 I would of been on fire. Thanks.
  3. I served these with grilled chicken and they were wonderful. No leftovers is always the mark of success in this house, and the pan was empty. Thanks for posting.


I am a former retail management slave who is now a stay at home mom who absolutely loves her job. I have an eight year old, a two year old and a nine month old who all bring their own kind of joy to my life. My favorite thing in the world is to cook. We have a real, from scratch family dinner almost every night. Please don't be offended if I somewhat change a recipe in my review. I look at recipes sort of as guidelines, and alter them according to inspiration. I've received alot of helpful advice from reviews, that's why I share what I've done differently. With my little ones I'm pretty busy, but I LOVE this site and plan on being even more active as they get older.
