Golden Herb Butter Roasted Potatoes

Simple. Cheap. Hearty. Satisfying. Delicious. 

For college cooking those are my goals when finding new recipes! (Truth is, I look for those characteristics in any recipe I try!) And, this is especially true when looking for side dishes and ways to eat veggies! 



Coming back from classes, you really want something with a few steps...so you can eat! On the other hand, you don't want a salad every night, either! Roasting is a great cooking method to use for veggies of all kinds--broccoli, asparagus, carrots, parsnips, potatoes--it is healthier, seals in flavor, and there is really nothing to do except prepping whatever your eating that night!

Try this roasted side dish next time from Huckleberry Cafe out in Santa Monica, California! Do some California Dreamin' with supper tonight!
