Syracuse Salt Potatoes
This was delicious and simple! I put about 2lbs of small-medium red, purple and gold potatoes in a pot & covered generously with water. I added one cup of salt (my that's a lot of salt when you have it all measured out) and allowed it to come to a boil. Then, I simmered those potato butts for 20-25 minutes. What came out was amazing! Taken out with a slotted spoon and patiently waiting for them to dry, a soft salt crust developed around the skin making it look like my potatoes were precious jewels. I devoured them immediately. I loved how the outside skin was salty and chewy and the inside "meat" though slightly bland, was creamy and soft and paired well with the salty exterior. Even my boyfriend (whom displayed no interest upon hearing how these were made) readily ate a few. No need for butter. These make for perfect snacks on the go!

Cauliflower Gratin
Great recipe! I used freshly crumbled bacon and a swiss/gruyere shredded cheese mix. I steamed fresh cauliflower for about 10 minutes so it was still a little hard/crunchy before putting it in the oven. The texture was PERFECT! My whole family loved it. It's surprising what you can make with a can of mushroom soup. This will definitely be made again.

Zucchini Patties
Delicious! I didn't have Parmesan so I doubled up on the Mozzarella and added a few teaspoons of minced garlic. Next time I'll try to fry thinner patties so the insides won't be as gooey. Great way to use up extra zucchini!
