This recipe is a potato dream come true. πŸ₯”
There's nothing about this recipe that I don't absolutely love...
Almost started drooling on my phone screen when I saw this! Too bad I neglected to buy potatoes yesterday when shopping πŸ˜• I have a question though, that has nothing to do with this recipe. For a short while I was receiving a daily email with multiple recipes listed - but they've recently stopped. Is there a problem, or...? Thanks!
