Since most of my cooking experiments are either a success or a failure (usually nothing in between!) I’m going to start recording the home runs here.


  • Yellow fingerling potatoes (or anything small – I used round yellow Baby Dutch potatoes)
  • Minced garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Pinch of dried rosemary
  • Olive oil


  1. Heat oven to 425
  2. Cut potatoes in half length wise
  3. Mix in oil, salt, pepper, garlic and rosemary
  4. Bake potatoes on pizza pan for 20-25 minutes until soft all the way through
  5. About 15 minutes through the baking, flip as many potatoes as you can before getting bored
  6. After 20-25 minutes of baking at 425, set the oven to high broil for 1-2 minutes – about 500 degrees
  7. Voila! These potatoes are so good on their own… no ketchup needed if you can believe it. The leftover pieces of garlic are TDF… crunchy and flavorful.
