What is your favorite way to eat potatoes? I feel like that I don’t have a favorite way. I love potatoes. Just like pasta, potatoes are a staple of my household. Potatoes are important in my life and the lives of so many people…
If they were not important or so damn delicious, there certainly wouldn’t be over 50 different words describing potatoes in Irish.
Yes! I checked because I have nothing better to do than check how to say potatoes in every language… there is even an article saying describing potatoes in 90 different Irish words.
I don’t know if I ever told you, but many times when my husband and I go to the restaurant to eat, I order a bowl of mashed potatoes with gravy. I am not exaggerating. You can check my delicious recipe HERE.
So, I grew up with potato salads. Not like American Potato salads, more like vinegar-oil based on a tone of onion in it, and that’s pretty much my favorite potato salad in the whole world. I made a similar one here on my blog:
Like I said so many times before, many dishes give me those flashbacks to the years when I was in high school or even younger. So, lately, I have been really enjoying sharing with all of you some of those dishes, as well as with my own family. I like introducing my kids to some of those recipes.
They are all amazingly easy yet delicious. What is my cuisine, you might ask? Well, it’s from all over Balkan, so I’d say it’s Balkan Cusine, but that’s not completely correct.
You can find Southeastern Europe, and there lies Balkan Peninsula. Many countries got almost identical cuisine, and the languages are somewhat similar; the difference would be dialects.
They influence each other in so many ways. You have a little bit of comfort food, delightful desserts, but a whole lot of Mediterranean and healthy recipes as well.
I would have to say that I grew with the best of both worlds, and in times when food was so much better or at least I had much fresher access, and kids played outside without usage of electronics. Good times!
Man, I love the 80s! I am connected to the 90s, too, because I was in high school by then, and I just loved every single moment, happy or sad, easy or hard. It was seriously the best.
I hope you try this easy recipe because it is truly delicious. Hey, if you try this recipe or any other from my blog, please share it with me on Instagram.
