I once created a cooking class, called 'Zen in the Kitchen'. Then wrote a book called the same. Then started the group with that name and the blog came after. All this happened in Turkish. Now is the time for the English version of it. Let's see what will cook here!

Shiny golden potatoes

Shiny golden potatoes,
just out of the owen.
They shine, they shine, they shine,
you look, you look, you look.
You can't wait to eat'em,
but you can't take your eyes off'em.
Easy. Take organic potatoes. Scrub them well, under running water.
Cut them in chunks, like the ones on the photo. In a bowl, mix fresh rosemary (cut in small pieces), fresh thyme, salt, freshly ground pepper, paprika, lotsa olive oil (virgin please!) Put baking paper on the tray, dip the potatoes in the mixture, put on the sheet. Heat the oven. 200 celcius (400 fahrenheit) is good enough. They need to be baked at least 30-35 min. Check after half hour. Then serve'em with fish, meat, burgers, veggies, salad, or eat as it is. Too good to be true. Too easy to be true.

Fresh dill and fat free sour cream mixed together make a great low cal dip for these potatoes.

Foodies can fancy them up all they want, but in the end all I want is a crispy golden potato! Mmmm mmm mmmm! I like your poem :)

That's what I always say. We all have our ways to do thing, don't we? That's the beauty of live, versatility.
