  1. These were really tasty and easy to make. Watch your fingers though, the potatos seemed much cooler before I started to peel them :)
  2. This is similar to the way my partner's late mother cooked red potatoes and I loved them. I didn't peel them, since we like the peels, and it adds some color. Went great with some lamb chops and asparagus. Made for Spring 2009 PAC.
