It’s already halfway through the year. 6 months already have gone by, and 6 more to go. We are so happy that our little community is growing. Can you believe we’re almost 4,000 foodies from all of our social media channels? That means over 4,000 screens get filled directly with our recipes, tips and ideas… without counting all the visitors we get on the site. We are in cloud 9! You can find links to all of our channels right here: Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

As we’ve been doing so lately, we are loving Susan’s work for our desktop calendars. This time, we have a gorgeous pair of tomatoes to brighten your desktop. Even though it’s summer in the US, we are in the beginnings of our rainy and gray season, so we love this chunk of color for our devices. Follow Susan on Instagram if you are not yet one of her over 27 thousand followers. We absolutely love her!

As always, you can download them all for your Desktop, iPad, iPad Mini and iPhone (all Retina and iOS7 friendly).

Purple Potato Patties

I’ve been seeing purple potatoes in our local supermarkets lately, which reminded me that I had a recipe to share with you.  Purple potatoes have a moist and starchy consistency, I wouldn’t use them to make mashed potatoes because I think it could turn out gluey, but they are a great variety to use for roasting or baking.  I tried making purple potato patties with them, and they were an interesting side dish to add a little variety to our weekday meals.  I’d like to try roasting them, together with red and regular potatoes, I think I would cube them and roast them with some garlic, rosemary and olive oil… I’ll let you know how that turns out. I also saw a recipe for potato salad using them, which sounds interesting enough to try.

I’ve been getting a little bored with my weekday cooking lately and am looking to add some variety.  With these patties, even if it’s still potatoes… at least they’re purple!
