When it comes to food, nothing epitomizes comfort more so than the potato. Whether mashed, hashed, home fried, deep fried, baked with or without obscene amounts of cheesy, creamy goodness, the potato reigns supreme. With picnic and barbecue season just around the corner, potato salads are prime to take center stage. So, when the Sunday Supper Movement teamed up with the Idaho Potato Commission for a potato salad extravaganza, I was all over it. I’m bringing my Nona Mary’s garlicky good potato salad, and when you scroll down below, you’ll find a total of 20 variations of that dish we all adore.

Roasted Leg of Lamb with Rosemary Potatoes #SundaySupper | Webicurean

Happy Easter! We’re not terribly religious around here, but we do take time to celebrate the major holidays, Easter being one of our favorites. This week’s #SundaySupper is all about the holiday feast, and Alaiyo over at Pescetarian Journal is hosting. Occasions such as this bring the family together and deserve a special meal, so I’ve whipped up this leg of lamb that has been roasted with white wine and garlic. The rosemary potatoes cook around the lamb to soak up all that lamby goodness.

I know, it’s been a while. A long while. A few weeks ago, my mom’s heart condition landed her in the hospital, and life has been a little topsy-turvey here since. Despite having my computer with me while I travel, I haven’t had the energy to post here. But this is an escape, and I need to allow myself a little more time to escape. What better way to do so than to whip up one of our favorite treats–Chicken with Cashews.

Garlicky Italian Green Beans and Potoates #SundaySupper | Webicurean

I grew up in one of those meat-and-potatoes households and as a child found myself fascinated with the old Hidden Valley Ranch commercials. Could snacking on veggies be that fun?! As you might imagine, greens were hardly in my vocabulary back then, so when my buddy DB over at Crazy Foodie Stunts said he was hosting an Eat Your Greens #SundaySupper, exactly two¬† dishes came to mind–broccoli cheese casserole and Italian green beans with potatoes. That’s normal, right? Old habits die hard.

Some days it feels as if I have pasta pumping through my veins. Must be the Italian in me, as pasta is one of my favorite foods, especially if it’s one of my grandfather’s recipes. Tammi over at Mamma’s Meals is hosting a meatless #SundaySupper this week, so why not bring one of my grandfather’s specialities–pasta e patate.

Five Spice Turkey Endive Wraps | Webicurean

It all began with a knock at the door and the delivery of a beautiful bouquet … of Belgian endive. A bunch of endive, still on the root and adorned with a red ribbon, is certainly a sight to behold, especially if you’re a foodie. This is how the California Endive Farms shows its appreciation of food bloggers each year–by sending us this special treat for Valentine’s Day. To pay it forward, I thought I’d whip up these Five Spice Turkey Endive “Wraps” and share them with you.
