Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary

Man, it seems like forever since I've been on here! Moving sure takes up a lot of time. :) Thankfully it went extremely well. Our "20 -30 Something Year Old" Community Group helped us move out one night and it sure was a blessing! Almost everything got moved that night and we celebrated by eating pizza and some yummy cookies. Now I am finding out that the hard part is reorganizing and deciding where to store everything...... still working on that. But I have had time to try out some new recipes and they have all turned out pretty well. Except for the Yogurt Baked Chicken, sounds weird but I thought it would be good and it didn't taste as good as I had hoped. :( Tonight I made Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary. My mom had a bunch of Better Homes & Gardens magazines that she wanted to get rid of, so I went through them and cut out pictures of decorations, food, and house ideas (which I love doing!). I found this recipe in there and thought it looked delicious! And it turned out very yummy and very easy! So here is the recipe, in case you want a taste. :)

Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary

Makes 4 Servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes

3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Rosemary
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper, to taste
2 Potatoes, cut in half or fourths
(red skin, Yukon Gold, fingerling)

Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat 15x10 inch baking sheet with no-stick spray. Stir together oil (I used Vegetable Oil, cause I didn't have any Olive Oil), rosemary (again, I used dried, because I didn't have any fresh), garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add potatoes. (now I used small red potatoes because that is what I have right now. I believe I used about 4-5, enough to fill in the pan.) Toss well until coated. Spread evenly in prepared pan. Bake 30-35 minutes, stirring occasionally until potatoes are fork-tender and golden brown.
I found this picture on their website so that you could see how yummy and mouth watering this recipe is! If you make it, I hope you enjoy it!

Yes, it's true.... we're moving! Sure it's only ten minutes away, but I am super excited. It'll be hard to leave our cute little cottage, but our new place will be just as comfortable when we get all moved in. Here's what we are leaving behind, hopefully to another deserving couple.
