Lemon Herb Roasted Potatoes

I wanted a simple side dish to have alongside a BLT.   I had a bag of honey gold potatoes that I bought without a purpose, so I set about finding one on my Pinterest boards.     This recipe from Rock Recipes was perfect.

I started the potatoes off in the microwave,  piercing them all over with a fork.   I cooked them for about 7 minutes, then let them cool slightly before quartering them.    I tossed them with the lemon juice and let them sit while I combined the salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, oregano, lemon zest and olive oil.

Loved how these turned out, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, seasoned perfectly.  They'd also be great done in foil packets on the grill.

  • 1/2 bag honey gold potatoes (about 8)
  • 1/8c olive oil

  • 1/4 t cracked black pepper
  • 1/2t each rosemary, thyme and oregano
  • Zest from one lemon, juice from one half


  1. Heat your oven to 375, with the baking dish you'll be using inside to heat up.
  2. Pierce potatoes with a fork and microwave for 6 to 7 minutes. Let cool slightly and then quarter them. Toss with lemon juice and set aside. Combine the salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, oregano, lemon zest and olive oil.
  3. Toss the potatoes with the oil mixture, coating evenly. Pour into your preheated pan. Shake the pan after about 10 mins to make sure they aren't sticking. Continue to roast them for about 40 minutes more, turning every 20 mins so that all sides get golden brown.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Strawberry Pizzelles

Pizzelles are one of my favorite childhood cookies and I'm constantly looking for ways to put a new spin on them.  Since one of my favorite summer fruits is strawberries, I swapped out the vanilla in the original recipe with strawberry extract.  This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek !  I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own. I also added some red food coloring to give it a pink hue, but you can skip that if you like.  I use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter, it keeps all the pizzelles the same size, plus it's quicker than using two spoons.   They're delicious as is but you can take them over the top by fashioning them into a cylinder which we like to call fauxnoli.  You can pipe them full of whipped cream or buttercream.  If you want to prepare everything in advance, store the pizzelle in an airtight container, and the filling in a pastry or zip top bag in the f
