  1. Excellent side. I accidentally ended with too much cream and to help use some of it I reversed at amounts of milk and cream in this recipe. Oh my. was it good! I have to say that you should really watch this, I made the full recipe and it was fully cooked with very tender potatoes in about half the stated time even with me lowering the oven to 350 after the first 30 mins. Made for PAC, Fall 2012
  2. Great potato dish. Loved the addition of sage. Did not use the peppers (have never seen a peppadew in this area). Great with pork chops. Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.


I come from Malta and my partner Elizabeth comes from the US ~ Indiana. We both love good wholeome food, and enjoy both preparing it and eating it! All foood needs to be washed down by a good bottle of wine and we have a very wide taste in wines right down from a bottle of house wine to help with the cooking and up to a classical bottle of wine to enjoy with a meal. We decided to buy a little guest house called Ashfield House in the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales which I run and Elizabeth works as a lawyer and supports me admirably at weekends and most evenings.
