Rainbow Hasselback Potatoes

In honor of  St. Patrick’s Day, I made rainbow Hasselback potatoes, filling each potato gap with a colored veggie or cheese.  Once I start pulling pieces off of one of these potatoes, I can't stop!

Find out how easy it is to make there here ==> http://www.cupcakeproject.com/2014/03/rainbow-hasselback-potatoes.html

Author, "The Ultimate Panini Press Cookbook" (Harvard Common Press, Sept 2013)
Introduction

I channel my passions for cooking and online media into two food blogs:Panini Happy, with over 200 creative grilled sandwich recipes and helpful panini-making tips, and Cooking On the Side, featuring the recipes I find printed on food packaging. I love good food and I believe that inspiration for it can be found in unexpected places. My work has been featured in Pillsbury Magazineand the Associated Press, on the SaveurTLC and Food News Journalwebsites and highlighted in The Wall Street Journal. In 2010 and 2011, I was listed among the Top 50 Mom Food Bloggers and Top 100 Mom Food Bloggers by Babble.com. I also served as an Executive Judge for the 2011 Grilled Cheese Invitational in Los Angeles.

I entered the food world following a career in online marketing and advertising for well known consumer brands Warner Bros.Gateway and TurboTax. A Silicon Valley native and proud alumna of Stanford University, I now live in beautiful San Diego, California with my husband Mike and our two toddlers.
