    We enjoyed these tasty tatters for dinner last night. They were lovely, crispy and tender, flavorful and very quick and easy to make. Please thank your sister for sharing this recipe. i will be making these often. The ratio of herbs, spices and oil was perfect. Made for ZWT7 from the Witchin Kitchen.

    Reviewed for ZWT7. A really easy and tasty baked potato dish that would be a great side to any meat or chicken dish. I used a kilo of baby new potatoes- so didn't even bother to peel them. Photo also being posted

    These are probably some of the best roasted potatoes that I have ever had. They are so simple and have a lot of flavor. Thanks!

    These made a tasty side to our burgers tonight. I opted for only 1/2 tsp chili powder and found that it gave them a nice subtle tang that suited the whole family. Thanks for sharing.

    This recipe accomodates taste and portion preferences very well--so easy to add differing amounts of oil, potatoes and spices to suit individual family needs without sacrificing flavor and attractiveness. The only change made was to add a little salt. I especially like that they aren't as greasy as many baked potato dishes. Only after making this, though, did I realize it is very similar to Mandy from Oz's recipe (#223058). Both go in my keeper file--thanks, Sara.

I'm married, I have 2 kids (both boys), and I live in Australia. I have loved cooking for as long as I can remember, and have become completely addicted to browsing through Zaar looking for new recipes! I have a small animal shelter for rabbits and guinea pigs, and spend most of my time looking after kids or critters!. My favourite cookbooks are The Essential Pasta Cookbook, The Central Cookery Book, Flo Bjielkie-Peterson's Country Cookbook, and Greek Cooking (I bought that one in Greece, and it's FANTASTIC). At the minute, we are getting ready to move, which is forcing me to sort through my recipe cabinet. I have been trying out all those recipes that are scribbled on pieces of paper, or torn from magazines, so I can decide ifthey are keepers or not. So far I've found a lot of keepers, and will work at posting them on here. I'm passionate about a lot of things, mainly my kids, animals, and cooking. I won't even start on my peeves, we'll be here all night! lol
