Recipe: No Fail Roasted Potatoes

I can usually get my husband to spend some time in the kitchen on Sundays so when I was making our meal plan for the week, I had a little plan up my sleeve.  I found an easy crock pot recipe that I could throw together quickly and that would be well complemented by his yummy roasted potatoes.  We have slightly different tastes when it comes to potato chunks (read french fries) because I like them super crispy and he likes them a bit softer.  These potatoes come out kind of as a mixture and he cooks them just long enough so there are crispy ones for me and softer ones for him, hence the name No Fail Roasted Potatoes!

These have lots of flavour and were a perfect addition to the crock pot chicken and spinach salad I planned for our Sunday night dinner.  They are actually so easy that even I can make them but will take advantage of getting him in the kitchen any time I can!  So seriously, anyone can make my hubby's No Fail Roasted Potatoes.

These delicious potatoes went so well with our Crock Pot Italian Chicken and as you can see I got some nice crispy pieces.  It's always nice to collaborate on a tasty meal and you know what they say: Happy Wife, Happy Life!

How often do you get your husband in the kitchen?
