In the springtime, I always look forward to making ramp potatoes. If you've never had a ramp, you are missing out! A member of the leek family, they have a taste like garlic, onion, and a little something special!

I was afraid simmering my sliced potatoes would turn them to mush by the time the dish was complete. I rinsed my sliced potatoes and patted dry placed them in a single layer on a plate and microwaved them for a minute or so and then proceeded with the recipe. If you're able to find ramps (wild leeks) I encourage you to try this. If you like onions and garlic you'll like ramps. They taste like a cross between the two. Read More

5 large potatoes was way too much for this recipe. I also over-cooked mine but that was my fault not the recipe! What I ended up with was the consistency of a baked potato but we were ok with that and not bad for a first try! We have wild onion growing in our backyard and my 12 year old wanted to try cooking with them and this recipe was perfect for that. Read More
