Oh potatoes, how we adore thee. Delicious when slathered with butter, fried crisp in hot oil or simply mashed with cream. Rustic yet sexy, potatoes come in any shape and size, and a little dirt never hurts. Join us in exploring some of our favorite potato preparations, but remember: the possibilities are endless.
- Garlic Smashed Potatoes with Balsamic Reduction
- Rustic Balsamic-Roasted Root Vegetables

HOW YOU CAN JOIN IN SUMMER (AND FALL) FEST:
Each Wednesday for the rest of the summer and fall, a group of blogging friends including those above will swap our recipes and tips about the following harvest-fresh ingredients. Here’s the schedule:
10/6 Fall Salads
10/13 Pumpkin & Winter Squash
We each post something and then link to one another, so that you can travel around the combined effort, gathering the goodies. Sharing makes the experience even better, so if you have a recipe or tip that fits any of our weekly themes, you can do either of the following:
- Leave a comment on participating blogs with a link to your recipe/tip
- Publish a post of your own, and grab the juicy Summer/Fall Fest 2010 badge (illustrated by Matt Armendariz of Mattbites)
We hope to see you in the kitchen!
