When I came back and flipped them, my jaw dropped. Ha! I had struck gold without even looking for it. After that mesmerizing moment and the meal that followed I tried …

Summer eating is different than how we eat the rest of the year. For one, we eat out of doors more often, feeling the fresh air and smelling the sun.

Course, potatoes are healthy either way- full of Vitamin C, B6, manganese, folate, iron, phosphorus, potassium, niacin and pantothenic acid, not to mention phytonutrients.
