I'm still in my PJ's *blush* but at least I know that my kitchen can be colour coordinated! We have a few red-skinned potatoes lying around our house, so to keep in the spirit of things I'll whip them up into a yummy side dish. After all, who doesn't love slightly crispy, creamy, deliciously roasted potatoes anyway? The result of just a few household additions turns an everyday potato into a sweet, salty and delicious side-dish that is so elegant that you could serve it on a holiday table, but since it's really so easy, it doesn’t have to be holidays-only!
Check back at Sweetnick's on Tuesday night for Cate's weekly roundup, and some more heart-healthy inspiration!

And if heart disease awareness wasn't enough charity toting for one day, I saw Rachael Ray's talk show today where Mario Batali mentioned his coalition with Barilla and Second Harvest. The bonus is that we consumers dont have to spend a dime in order to help the hungry, and you get a free virtual cookbook out of the deal too! All you have to do is go to this link and download the cookbook, and presto-change-o, $1 from Barilla is given to Second Harvest. You can even choose which division gets your dollar, and the recipes are yummy!
