Crash Hot Potatoes

Standard

Ingredients:
New Potatoes (or other small, round potato)
Olive Oil
Kosher Salt
Black Pepper
Rosemary (or desired herbs)

Preparation:
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in as many potatoes as you wish to make and cook them until they are fork-tender. On a sheet pan, generously drizzle olive oil. Place tender potatoes on the cookie sheet, leaving plenty of room between each potato.

With a potato masher, gently press down each potato until it slightly mashes, rotate the potato masher 90 degrees and mash again. Brush the tops of each crushed potato generously with more olive oil. Sprinkle potatoes with kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper, and fresh chopped rosemary (or chives or thyme or whatever herb you have available).

Bake in a 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

Fresh Lemonade

Standard

Ingredients:
3 lemons, juiced
1 C sugar
2 quarts water

Preparation:
Combine lemon juice, sugar, and water in a 2 quart pitcher. Stir until well combined and sugar is dissolved. Serve over ice.

For a fruity twist, add some of your favorite flavor drink mix (the fruit puree/syrup kind meant for alcoholic beverages – strawberry daiquiri, peach, mango, etc.) to each glass before pouring lemonade. Stir to combine.

Creamy Fruit Dip

Standard

Ingredients:
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese (or 1/3 less fat cream cheese)
7 oz. marshmallow creme/fluff

Preparation:
Combine both ingredients in a bowl and mix together until smooth and creamy. Serve with fruit of your choice; bananas are the best in my opinion, but strawberries, cherries, apples, pears, and grapes are tasty as well!
