These are not our recipes. We can not take any credit (good or bad) for the quality of them, or the actual creation of them. We simply needed a place to keep them all together in one place! This seemed like as good a place as any. If you enjoy them too, all the better! Oh...and there are a few crochet/knit patterns stashed here for safe keeping also.

Baked Hasselback Potatoes
Ingredients (serves 4): 4 medium potatoes, scrubbed (leave skin on) 4 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced 3 tbsp of olive oil salt pinch of smoked paprika 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese chopped chives for garnish
Preheat the oven to 425˚F (220ºC).
Slice each potato crosswise at 1/8-inch intervals, cutting to within 1/4 inch of the bottom.
Be careful not to slice all the way through. The potato will fan out a bit as it bakes.
Combine olive oil, garlic, salt, smoked paprika and parmesan cheese in a small bowl.
Lay the potatoes on a baking sheet. Carefully insert pinches of this mixture in between the slits of the potatoes. Rub the outsides of the potatoes with residual oil.
Bake for about 40-45 minutes. The inside should be cooked through and the outside of the potato should be a bit crispy.
