We hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday, and we hope you have a great New Year too! We had a great Christmas and made some delicious dishes (which we will get to at a later time – I promise). Now that our cookies are FINALLY done, it was back to doing what we do best which is cooking our favorite dishes and pairing them with our favorite brews. My parents and sister are here to help celebrate the holiday and help eat all of the delicious foods. Today we made a special little snack from our leftover blue mashed potatoes from last night. Oh…my…God. They were to die for! Blue Potato Pancakes…what doesn’t sound delicious about that?! We suggest that if you have leftovers, you HAVE to try this one out.
