Grilled Garlic Potatoes
About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, seafood, beef, chicken, asian, grilling, veggies...not much I don't enjoy cooking. Would love to learn Thai cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since no one in my family really loves a traditional ham or goose for Christmas, we have paella instead since everyone does love seafood!
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to make Paella from my mother with the help of Time/Life cookbook published in the 50's. Seems like current Paella recipes are all shortcuts to the real thing.
My cooking tragedies
Pasta Primavera sounds so good but the only time I made it -- years ago -- I hated it!! Too much something--maybe thyme??

Grilled Garlic Potatoes
Great recipe!! What a tasty way to do potatoes on the grill...super variation on the old steak and boring baked potato! After reading several reviews, I made the following changes: used red potatoes, skin on, slice about 1/8" thick. Increased cook time by 5 minutes (10 each side, 5 to melt the cheese). Used a foil pan, covered with a piece of foil, sprayed both the pan and the inside of the foil cover -- EASY CLEANUP!! Omitted the white onion. In the foil pan, just placed the potatoes, garlic, and a few pats of butter. Crisped up several slices of bacon & chopped some green onion. In the last five minutes of cook time, peeled back the foil, tossed in the cheese and bacon. After 5 minutes, removed from grill, sprinkled with the chopped green onion, and served with side of sour cream. Talk about melt in your mouth! Mmmmm. My new man was very impressed and loved these potatoes! Will make again and again and again!! Side note: these also made great breakfast potatoes the next day -- just heat & serve!

Chicken and Artichokes
This was very easy to make and tasted nicely. Not sure why the recipe would have this in the oven for 40 minutes?? After browning the chicken, I added garlic to pan (as others have done) then followed recipe until the baking in the oven -- after the mushrooms & sauce were done, I returned chicken to pan, added the artichokes (I used only artichoke bottoms rather than hearts since hearts can have chewy leaves that are hard to eat), then covered & simmered for a few minutes. Turned out wonderfully without baking. Served over brown rice. A very brown-looking dish but tasty. Thanks!

Blackened Chicken
Great blend of spices!! I used the recipe to make a blackened chicken fettucine alfredo w/ baby artichokes -- perfect blend of spiciness with creaminess. Will definitely be using this recipe over and over again!
