Vegan Cottage Pie

This unusual, yet delicious take on the classic Shepherds Pie is completely vegan and packed with vegetables like carrots, onions, lentils, peas and (of course) zucchini! The topping looks cheesy but its actually a mix of sweet and Yukon gold potatoes mashed with rice milk and lots of salt and pepper. I made it in smaller foil pans so N could freeze and eat as he needed. Yum! I get some of the best cooking inspiration from N. He is so adventurous when it comes to my cooking and he loves to...

Comment on tzatziki potato salad by Deb Evans

This is the first recipe I have ever made from here that didn’t turn out. At all. I followed the directions and it was dry and tasteless. Wonder if my Yukon’s weren’t the best choice?] But the dressing was blah. Guess I will stick with heavy old mayo

Comment on melting potatoes by Lauren

SO GOOD. I’ve made them twice – first time split between two cast iron pans and with Yukon/sweet potato/onion, and the second time only Yukon in an All-Clad roasting pan. I think the All-Clad worked better but they came out amazing both times. I also did 450 degrees for both times because 500 makes me nervous… but it still came out great! Will absolutely make this again and again.

Recipe: Spuds O’Brien is a hearty potato dish that can work as a side or main course

Baby Dutch Yellow potatoes as well as Yukon Gold potatoes have the perfect texture for this classic dish. They crisp to a golden brown without falling apart. Turn the side dish into a one-dish meal by topping each serving with a fried or poached egg. The origin of the dish is disputed. Some claim it was created in the early 1900s at a restaurant in Boston, other sources give credit to a New York City eatery in the same timeframe. No matter the derivation, the combination of ingredients is divine...

Comment on dilled potato and pickled cucumber salad by Ellie

Can you use russet potatoes instead of Yukon gold? Also- how much less mayo would you use (coming from a family who are not huge mayo fans)?

Comment on roast chicken with schmaltzy cabbage by Michelle

I made this tonight. I put the chicken and cabbage on for 45 minutes. Then I added three Yukon gold potatoes, thickly sliced and chunked carrots. Let everything go for another 30 minutes. Took the chicken out to rest and let the vegetables cook for another 20 minutes. WOW! So incredibly delicious. My husband raved. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe.

The Constitutionality of Interprovincial Boundary Closures (Part II)

INTRODUCTION In my post last week, I blogged the background to an analysis of constitutional challenges to interprovincial border closures. I briefly referred to the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in Comeau, which considered the constitutionality of barriers to interprovincial trade represented by section 134 of the New Brunswick Liquor Control Act limitations on the amount of liquor and beer that someone could bring into New Brunswick from another province. I also set out some of the border...

The Cost of Comfort: GM’s Full-size SUVs Gain Thrift in City Driving, Lose It on the Open Road

The revamped, full-size Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban and their GMC Yukon/Yukon XL twins gain significant length, interior volume, and creature comforts for 2021, but extra MPGs seem to be in short supply. The vehicles are now even larger than their predecessors, are still heavy, and carry identical V8 engine displacements, so no one should have […] The post The Cost of Comfort: GM’s Full-size SUVs Gain Thrift in City Driving, Lose It on the Open Road appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
