I’ve made it quite a few times until running out of goat cheese. Now I must get more. Read the rest of this post
I never heard of a Hasselback potatoes until I was watching The Best Thing I Ever Made on Food Network and Robert Irvine shared his. I immediately thought:

I always find it funny when my kids don’t like things I LOVED as a kid. It’s the Murphy’s Law of parenting, just like when they sleep in the only day you need to leave early or decide they actually do need to use the potty 5 minutes after you asked them and now you are already on the road.
