I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Orange Mashed Potatoes

These potatoes are divine! I love that the orange color is natural - from the sweet potato. Yum!

6 potatoes

1 large sweet potato

¼ c butter

½ c nonfat half & half

Sour cream

Sea salt

Coarse black pepper


Wrap potatoes in foil and bake in 400° oven for an hour. When cool enough to handle, take off skins and mash potatoes in a large bowl. Add butter, half and half, sour cream, sea salt and pepper. Store in the fridge until mealtime. Before eating, microwave and stir. Add milk if needed for creaminess.

Make into a jack-o-lantern if desired. Spread potatoes in a circular pan. Decorate like a pumpkin face using corn kernels.
