Crash Hot Potatoes

Crash Hot Potatoes
Man, do I love Australia. First, my oldest daughter was conceived there on our honeymoon…and while we’re on the subject, have I ever shared with you that we almost named her “Sydney” as a nod to her point of origin? In the end, I chickened out, though—I thought that might be a little corny, and truth be told, I think she was actually conceived in Brisbane. But I’ll stop there. This is a family-friendly website. Anyway, I just love Australia. They’re so simple, it’s terrifying. For now, though, let’s take a chill pill and make Crash Hot Potatoes! The Cast of Characters: New Potatoes (or other small, round potato), Olive Oil, Kosher Salt, Black Pepper, and whatever herb you like. Begin by bringing a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in as many potatoes as you wish to make, and cook them until they’re fork-tender. Oh! Next, generously drizzle olive oil on a sheet pan. This will mean the difference between the potatoes sticking and not sticking, so don’t be shy here. Or something. That’s it!

Chicken and biscuits Here's another delicious winter all in one meal, that I could maybe eat every day. Or at least every day for a week, then maybe not for a while. Chicken and Biscuits (or dumplings) I'm not sure if these are biscuits or dumplings, on one hand I used a biscuit dough recipe, on the other the dough is dropped and cooked in the liquid gravy, which is what dumplings are.
