Visiting from over at P-W's site. I like the looks of your s-tater recipe, roasting them first. I do little red spuds the same way, cut more or less bite size then drizzle with evoo and salt and whatever other herb is the favorite of the day, then oven roast. Such an easy side! So I'll definately try recipe, and thanks for sharing! Candy in WI
