I'm new at this...

I'm not a big fan of cooking blogs and I don't typically enjoy reading about cooking.  Maybe because I don't cook and I'm not good at it.  But since my recent unemployed status, I've been testing the waters.  My first attempt was pretty mediocre, not even worthy enough to mention.  My second attempt the week before last was a big hit.  Tonight, I decided to try a little something that I read on JCasa *handmade.  My local market didn't have yukon golds so I went with new potatoes.  I think I would have liked the yukon golds better but the new potatoes worked out just fine.  Don't they look almost as pretty as Jennifer's?  Oh!  Jennifer's tip to rest the potato on a wooden spoon before slicing...genius!!  Works like a charm.

I know what you mean about food blogs. I like looking at them occasionally but they make me feel inadequate. And even though I do a little baking, I am always reluctant to post about it because it just pales in comparison to the real food blogs out there. That said, what you made looks yummy! And I love the picture of your boys in the previous post!!!

Hi Les! Thanks. They turned out great and it was so easy. I had an issue of what it means to roast but I figured it out. :-)
