    Mmmmmm now I want POTATO EVERYTHING! Hahaha. Those Chipotle Parmesan Fries especially are calling my name. I feel like potatoes are so underrated… nice to see a list proving otherwise! 🙂

    (P.S. Happy Birthday Don! What an awesome tribute!)

    You are so creative with potatoes – l really need to make some of these! My favorite – and me that I did make – is the smashed potato breakfast pizza. So good, and so hearty – I made it for friends before we went hiking!
