Sometimes you need a little flavor or color in your life. Yes? Do things feel dull and boring? Maybe you just need some peppers in your potatoes. Don’t get me wrong. I love regular ol’ hash browns. Sort of like I love a cozy night at home in my sweats. But sometimes I need some excitement . . . and that’s when I get dressed up and go out. Or I make me some Southwest hash browns. At home. In my sweats. They’ll bring flavor and color to your llfe.

    Oh yum! I love this kind of potato dish. Potatoes are totally my favorite food, other than bread products with some sort of sugary glaze.

      Carbs are the best food group, hands down, right? I’d love to know more about bread with a sugary glaze . . . do you have a favorite kind? I feel the need to be introduced to this. Sounds so good!!

        Oh yeah, totally a food group. As for the bread with a sugary glaze, silly me, I ought to have been more specific. I meant things like doughnuts, apple fritters, cinnamon rolls, and something I saw my son in-law do at Sunday dinner. I had made some candied sweet potatoes with burned…er…toasted marshmallows on top and my son in-law dipped his roll in the sugary syrup and the melted marshmallows. Oh heavens, I did the same thing and thought I had finally reached nirvana. And yes, I am trying to brew a recipe in my head for incorporating that idea into some sort of sweet roll. Actually………..I think that I just figured it out. I’ll get back to you after I give things a try this weekend.

          I love that you turn your cuisine dreams into a reality, making up recipes and all! That’s just pure talent right there. I can’t wait to hear about the “nirvana” rolls! And for the record, I’m a huge fan of the sweet roll family too. Have you tried orange rolls?? A glaze AND frosting?? Man. Too good to be true!
