Black and Blue Skins

Potato skins are a great appetizer, but when you cook up the pre-made frozen variety, you can never be quite sure what you are eating. Bake up these fresh potato skins, and you will be happy to see your family inhale them! Yes, that’s kind of the way my boys are eating these days….everything…and quickly!

Load these potato skins up with fresh Harpersfield Farmstead Cheese, I used the Lapsang Black Tea for a smoky flavor and Hickory Smoked Blue Cheese from Oscar’s Smoke House. Top off with some crispy bacon for a super simple make ahead appetizer. These skins will disappear, yet leave you with time to enjoy the game day!

My Grandma always had something cooking in the kitchen. Whether she was baking up sour dough muffins or preparing a full course meal, weΒ could always count on her for some type of treat. There were several dishes that she made like none other. This Pot Roast was one of them and it is melt in your mouth delicious.

Until several years ago, I wasn’t sure what the secret was to her pot roast. I was sad that I hadn’t asked for the recipe, until my brother invited me for dinner….and to my surprise had cooked up Grandmas Pot Roast! Needless to say I grilled him on the exact particulars of her recipe…so here it is…..I am sure that your family will love it just as much as mine does!
