I love PAULA DEEN..but Ilove LYNN and EARL more !!

for her monthly 
CELEBRITY COOK-ALONG PARTY..
This month, it is the infamous,
PAULA DEEN.
 ...how can a woman have two 30+ sons and look this dang good ???
THESE are Paula's
ROASTED RED POTATOES with rosemary and garlic
and that is what I made to accompany our
EASTER HAM
for Easter Sunday dinner.
 Really easy and quick way to fix your potatoes..
and they are delicious.
 This is a *keeper* recipe...

Your potatoes are beautiful BJ! My Rosemary is beginning to grow again and I've been dying to make this! The girls look like they're having fun dying eggs, I know this 'big kid' sure did! Thanks so much for playing along:@)

Oh My Dear, it is so beautiful here. Your blog look is just sensational.

Not to be raining on Paula's parade but... I read an article about how they "do" her hair. Mmmmmmm.... She doesn't 'start out' with that gorgeous hair do, we are used to. And the beautiful hair do that at least I am *envious* of. :-)

Welcome back to Blogger!!!

Little Brick Ranch said...

Girl, I know you love you some Paula!! I cant see what you will be making. Some how my Foodie Friday post was deleted...damn blogger. Still waiting for it to come up otherwise Ill do a quickie by 5pm. Hope all is well with you!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

How does she look so good...she's a southern lady, like you and I...of course! I love her cookin'! Enjoy your afternoon, girlfriend! ♥

Jacqueline said...

What a beautiful family. How fun to see them working on the eggs.

Paula is just adorable isn't she. She is like a hero to me and I love how those handsome boys support her! These potatoes look so yummy and I love the great presentation with a little of the skin removed - that makes them extra special.

I just got some rosemary to plant - I think it is one of my favorite herbs. It doesn't winter over here so I always get some as early as I can. Looks great for Sunday supper.

Madeline's Album said...

I am definitely going to have to try the potatoes. They look so good and sound delicious. Have a blessed day. Madeline

Eileen said...

I love these potatoes. They are absolutely delicious, like everything else Paula makes. Hope you have a lovely weekend. :)

Carol @ There's Always Thyme to Cook said...

The potatoes look so good!

Vee said...

Hope your post shows up...mine did.

Oh I would just love to make those red skinned pototoes so am going for the recipe.

Love your new header, though I always love your new headers.

Kathleen said...

Not a big fan of Paula, I can take about 10 min of her! :)
I love roasted red potatoes, yours look good!
I had a hard time finding a recipe of hers to make, my arteries were clogging as I read them. It's buttah or fried. I went with the latter, I feel very greasy right now!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

yummy!! So how much cleaning did you get done today while blogger was down? :-)

BJ, Those potatoes wouldn't last long at our house. I'd probably eat most of them right out of the oven. lol I like the way you peeled them around the middle. There are so many of Paula's recipes that I still haven't tried and that's one of them. Yum.. I'll make that this weekend.

You are been so good through this thing...thank you, my friend!

Lindy said...

You make me hungry and it's after 10pm....bad girl!

Sarah said...

BJ, roasted new potatoes are one of my favorites, add rosemary and that's even better. Great post! ~ Sarah

Mary said...

Oh those potatoes are calling my name! I bet they were perfect with your ham, I have to try them! Love the Easter fun collage too :-)

Rettabug said...

Wonderful selection, BJ...thanks for the link to the recipe.

Your girls look so intense on their egg coloring! Cute photos!

Like Jacqueline, I have to replant fresh rosemary every year here. Only once did it survive over the winter...must have been a mild one.

♥♥♥ your blog, Sweetie! Never fails to make me smile. :D

Hugs,
Rett

Emily said...

jeanne said...

Hi bj, hooray I can visit you at last. That Blogger was up to something huh? Maybe updating or something. What a pain. Thank goodness it is fixed.

Your red potatoes look fab. I am trying to make a recipe so I can join in but I don't have enough butter. Sigh. I love Lynn's blog. She is a hoot.

Have a wonderful weekend my sweet sister friend.
Love, jeanne

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

Wasn't it an interesting couple of days this week with Blogger? Lots of frustration out there in blog land.

Paula's potatoes look wonderful. I'm going to go and find that recipe right now!

Paula can afford to have lots of 'work' done and there's also airbrushing used in photos ;)

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I love to roast potatoes with rosemary (I usually add a chicken too)! They make the house smell so good, don't they?

Make sure you come sign up for my giveaway!

Jenn said...

I was fixing dinner and wondering how having my blog with WordPress (which I love) would have an effect on commenting and all. So, I just stopped cooking and came in here to find out! Ha. Actually, it's cooking. LOVE your header photo. Great post. Good idea blog. I have been over to Lynn's but haven't heard from her. I'll have to go see her again. I have a chicken recipe of Deen's that's awesome! Okay, I'm running out of time. Come check out my new place w/WordPress, okay? (If you want to follow, you have to redo it, unfortunately. I've got instructions on my old blog and 1st post a couple days ago on WP. Anyway, see ya soon, I hope! I smell dinner! Love, Jenn (Oh, it is different commenting here - how's it show up there I wonder?)

Carol said...

The potatoes look wonderful! I could eat them right now!

The Tablescaper said...
