"This was a good recipe for potatoes! I liked the flavors.....a little strong on the lemon and my potatoes didn't really brown. So I'd do some adjusting."

"Hi clkoster,

The last line in the method says to "stir in remaining ingredients". That would include the lemon juice.
Hope that helps!"

"These are good, but the lemon was a little overpowering."

"I did follow the recipe as presented! I did find this side dish to taste quite good-I believe that I'd add more olive oil and use a larger saucepan to brown the potatoes after cooking them. I'd also use more lemon juice for more of a zip!"

"This recipe was quick and easy. Since it called for cooked potatoes, I had to boil them for about 15 mins. Wish I had read that the day before and it would have made the dish much faster. The only modifications I made was a little more parmesan cheese and lemon zest directly on potatoes!! Yummy recipe!"
