We must celebrate potatoes before February is over.
It’s not like we don’t enjoy potatoes all the time, but you see, February is Potato Lovers’ Month !
Potatoes are a quintessential ingredient in almost any comfort food dish . And why wouldn’t they be? Pulled from the earth, they’re warming, buttery, creamy, and hearty.
Puréed into a rich soup, pan fried into a crispy pancake, oven roasted into the perfect French fry, or smashed with melting herb butter — there’s nothing I’d want more on a cold, winter evening. (Well, other than a few Chai Chocolate Chunk Cookies , that is. ;-))
