Queen Bee by CJM Apron and YUMMY Recipes!


So, you may notice that I've been a little (ok, a lot) MIA lately from blogging.  This new part-time co-hosting job has really taken a lot of time out of my schedule, even though it's only 4 hours a day.  But, one of the cool perks about being on TV is that I get to do really fun cooking segments, learn new recipes, and wear super cute aprons, like this one from Queen Bee by CJM.  I LOVE this apron!  Not only is it so stinkin' CUTE, it's really practical and functional as the bottom part is made out of a kitchen towel.  One of my FAVORITE college professors from Harding University, Dr. Carroll, is designing and crafting these aprons with her daughter and they have quite the variety over on their etsy site, HERE
Here are some of my favorites!

Cute, huh????  
You need to go LIKE her fan page on facebook HERE and show her some PnP LoVe!
(please & thank you!)

Well, yesterday on the show we had Chip from 5 Flavors on cooking up some marinated flank steak, fall ratatouille vegetables, and their house potatoes.  

You can watch the segment HERE!

But, I just had to share the House Potatoes recipe with you all!  
They were DELICIOUS!  I can totally see why they were his "house" specialty!

5 Flavors Signature Potatoes
-serves 10
10 large Idaho potatoes
1 quart of heavy cream
Salt and pepper
Peel potatoes and using sharp knives carefully slice potatoes and keep them in their original shape.  Place in large casserole dish side by side.  5 potatoes on one side and 5 on the other.  Pour quart of heavy cream over the potatoes and heavily salt and pepper.  Using your hand, gently press and spread the potatoes out evenly. Immediately place in a 325 degree oven for 1 hour or until brown and bubbly on top, may garnish with parmesan if desired.
