This easy Pan-Fried Potatoes & Sweet Potatoes Recipe has a delightful blend of red peppers, onions, garlic, fresh thyme, chipotle seasoning and even a touch of nutmeg!
Spring and summer may have been late in coming this year but that means good news for farm goers this fall. Berries are still plentiful, apples are in good supply and the new potatoes are scrumptious!
I think what I love most about potatoes is their versatility. They are great in salads, as a side dish and there are so many delicious and diverse ways to prepare them. Combining them with sweet potatoes is now one of my favorite!
