Herbed Garlic Potatoes Recipe

Meet the Cook: My mom cooks from scratch and rarely uses a recipe. That's how I learned - a pinch of this, a dash of that. But it was actually my dad who invented the basis for this recipe. The potatoes fit any kind of meal - fancy or burgers - and everyone asks me for the recipe. My husband and I have a son, 3. -Sherry DesJardin, Fairbanks, Alaska
