Roasted Chestnuts Recipe

Youtube Chestnuts

These Roasted Chestnuts are very nutty, lightly salty and sweet and balanced with classic Holiday seasonings; ground cinnamon and clove.  These Chestnuts are lightly pan tossed and roasted until they’re ready to peel.  Then sauteed in butter and seasoned to perfection.  This recipe is finished off in the oven for just a few more minutes until these nuts are golden brown.  If that sounds like something you’re interested in, then this Roasted Chestnut recipe is for you.

The Best Garlic Mashed Potatoes

These Garlic Mashed Potatoes are awesome, simple as that.  And I can go on about it for several reasons.  But first, know that most mashed potato recipes are very similar if not exactly the same.  So, how are you going to reinvent something that cooks think they have already perfected?  The answer is simple.  Just think Potato.  There are so many different kinds of potatoes, plus many ways to cook potatoes.  So all you have to do is go back to the basics, keep it simple yet powerful.

Mashed Potatoes

My Mashed Potatoes Secret Ingredient

For me, I love potato chips.  One in particular, in fact, Potato Skins.  That’s one of the reasons I leave my skins on in this Mashed Potatoes recipe; that and the nutrient factor, of course.  Also, when I eat chips or a baked potato, I usually have Sour Cream.  Now, there isn’t Sour Cream in this recipe but most recipes use milk, half and half or cream.  But why hasn’t anyone tried to use Buttermilk?  It’s sweet and sour, just like sour cream, and most folks like it with their baked potato.  Believe it or not, it is the perfect balance; that and the other ingredients I’ve added down below.  Anyway, these potatoes are great anytime but I think they’re even better around the Holidays.  So give this a try and don’t forget to leave your comments.

Now I know that most people know how to make a simple grilled cheese sandwich. But what about a Double Grilled Cheese or what I like to call a Double Decker Grilled Cheese? And did you know that experts say the proper way to make a great grilled cheese is with Mayonnaise? That’s right! So in this video we are grilling up a double decker with not 1, not 2 but 4 pieces of cheese, 3 pieces of Texas toast, Mayonnaise and a special seasoned butter blend I make myself.
