Thyme & Lemon Smashed Potatoes

This dish gave to my whole apartment such a tempting smell! I love the thyme addition! I used the herbs from my garden and potatoes I have at home (yellow and one purple potatoes), they where great and taste but did not turn to mashed potatoes (this depends on the quality of the potatoes). I prepared as suggested (halved and with skin), placed them cut slice done on the plate and then tossed with the additions. Finally I placed them in the oven again (cut side up) until the borders were lightly browned.
I’m super happy with the results, I will prepare these in the same way again and I highly recommend this preparation.
No matter did not turn out as mashed potatoes, they were perfect in any case and I did not miss anything.


  • 1 kilogram potatoes (Carisma Potatoes, unpeeled and halved)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and finely grated
  • 1 lemon, whole (finely grated zest of)
  • 2 tablespoons thyme leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika (smoked, ground)

Sunny’s Lemon Curry Chicken

sunnys-lemon-curry-chickenSuper delicious! I prepared the sauce as described. I used skinless chicken legs, and I coated them with egg and breadcrumbs (as we don’t corn flakes for breakfast) and I mixed the remaining egg with breadcrumbs and I pressed this over the legs. As a light crust was formed I turned the chicken and I brushed it with the sauce. It turned out crunchy and super tasty. Next time I will double the the sauce fir more liquid


1/2 cup sugar
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 egg, beaten
1 cup corn flake crumbs
1 chicken (cut up) or 1 assorted chicken piece, your choice

Thunder Bay Oven Fried Chicken


I knew that Kato’s recipe would be delicious, but I really did not expect such an amazing, tasty and comforting chicken bake! As I decided to prepare this today I realized that I did not have dried bread. I made I change taking slices from the freezer, defrosting them with the microwave and dicing it. After this I place the cubes in the microwave and I partially dried it. For the sauce I fried the onion, added the cubed (still not completely dry) bread, I added 5 fresh extra sage leaves (sliced) and I roasted/dried the bread; after baking I topped the chicken with parsley. After this I could continue as explained. As chicken broth I used the fond of my chicken from the weekend. I scaled down the recipe to 1/3 and this was really filling for us four in combination with yellow risotto and salad.


    • 4 lbs chicken pieces or 4 lbs chicken breasts
    • 6 cups dry bread cubes ( diced bread)
    • 1/2 cup flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons sage
    • 2 tablespoons oil, vegetable
    • 4 tablespoons onions, chopped
    • 1/2 cup margarine, melted
    • 1 (10 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup
    • 2 tablespoons flour
    • 1 1/4 cups water, cold
