Parmesan Potato Wedges

It’s satisfaction to the hilt when you bite into a potato wedge that has some crunch on the outside and then sink your teeth down into the fluffy potato inside.

I have not made French fries in years because these Parmesan potato wedges are so easy to make and delicious with hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs, steaks or about any meat.  Just cut the potatoes into wedges, add the seasonings and bake.  I made certain these were golden brown and covered well with the seasonings by turning them over in the pan a couple of times while baking.  This also ensures that they will be cooked evenly. 

These wedges are great and definitely a change from the run-of-the-mill potatoes.  Add more paprika or garlic powder or even make them using chili powder ~ there are so many options!  Lovely chunky potato wedges; they are the best!

By the way, I’m sure you can guess what shop the filet came from if you read the post before this one!  One great meal!

Parmesan Potato Wedges


3 russet baking potatoes
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4  teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon McCormick’s Seasoned Pepper
½ cup olive oil


Scrub and dry potatoes.
Cut each unpeeled potato lengthwise into 8 wedges.
Combine remaining ingredients in a shallow bowl.
Coat wedges with the mixture.
Place wedges on baking sheet, cut side down.
Bake at 400 degrees about 45-50 minutes, turning and basting occasionally until golden brown.

They are addicitive!


  1. I love potato wedges. Yours look so easy. When I make mine I boil the wedges for about 8 min. Dry them and toss with a little cornstarch, garlic infused oil, and spices. I then bake at 475 for 30-40 min. Maybe I should skip the boiling!

  2. We have potato wedges in my house quite frequently. I love them. Great thing is you can flavor them with just about anything! In the summer, I love to toss them on the grill...keeps the house cool too!

  3. These look really yummy, I will try them in the next couple of days while Nigel is here. Diane

  4. I could easily imagine the big grin on your face when you took a bite into these potato wedges. :-))

  5. I've got to try these. I like fries, but these could be a replacement. Have a great week.

  6. Oh gosh, this is absolutely my kind of food! I'm pretty sure I'm going to enjoy every single bite of these so much. Hope you'll have a wonderful day.
    Blessings, Kristy

  7. M, yours sound great! I've never boiled the potatoes first and must try that. It would make for less oven time and moister potatoes inside probably. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Food, Fun and Life in the Charente, they are great if you are a potato lover like I am. Hope Nigel likes them!

    Angie's Recipes, you are so right! I love potatoes about any way, except for potato soup.

    Buttercup, I like fries also but these seem easier to me plus they're good.

    My Little Space, they're really tasty! Thanks for the visit!

  8. I just made a much more boring version of these and wrote them up last night. I don't remember when it will post. My kids didn't want any flavor so mine were just boring salt and pepper! Thanks!

  9. This recipe sounds wonderful and I will defintiely try it...Thanks Pam, have a happy week.

  21. I am a potato nut (you know, you read my blog lol) and I roast all sorts of veggies with Parmesan all the time lol! I dont know why it didn't occur to me to try it on potatoes. :/
    I just made some with ranch dip seasoning. I think the flour in it creates a little crunch. They'll make it to my blog in weeks. I'm really ahead on post. So I am catching up on your blog today! Thanks for always reading mine!

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
