Cast Iron Roasted Potatoes

Today I bring a very simple recipe. I roast potatoes all the time, and the easiest is just spread out on a foil-lined baking sheet. But, after making them in a cast iron skillet on repeat, it is a super easy and speedy way to make the potatoes crisp on the outside and buttery soft on the inside.

One Pot Shrimp and Couscous

I am always leery of recipes that say you can do things in one pot (they often seem overly complicated for solely the reason of one pot), or of shrimp recipes since they are often overcooked. Well, this recipe managed to work and is easy while also being delicious. We were all fans.

Since it was already poured, it made me more likely to find dishes to try. I was able to reuse the oil more because I didn’t end of cooking meats with it this time.

Sweet Potato and Ham Hash

When I made this for lunch one day, no one knew what to expect from it. It ended up being quite good! I don’t even like ham that much and I still enjoyed it. The sweet potatoes are just that: sweet. Paired with the salty ham and seasoning, they go well together. Next time I would like to good the sweet potato even more and see if I can brown it more. I was worried about ruining it, but I think it could be even better with more caramelization.
