Do some foods just make you smile? Maybe it is because they are your favorites, maybe they remind you of childhood memories, or maybe they are just plain fun. Well, that is how I feel about purple potatoes. I think the color just brings out the kid in me. Every time I make them I can hear my Mom whispering in my ear, "Stop playing with your food!".

But Mommmmm, I can't help it. These potatoes are just too ding dang cute!

The first time I ran across purple potatoes at my local market I really had no idea what they were. I knew they looked like potatoes, but how could a potato be purple? I asked the produce guy and he assured me that yes, they were in fact potatoes. My curiosity immediately got the best of me and I bought 2 pounds immediately.

The first thing I made was mashed potatoes. I was seriously shocked at how purple the cooked potatoes are. I actually giggled when I finished making them. I wished I had known about them when my kids were little. They would have loved to see these purple mashed potatoes their plate!

The second thing I tried with them were my potato pancakes. They just brightened up the breakfast plate and immediately put me into a good mood. I ask you, who could be in a bad mood when they are greeted by bright purple pancakes in the morning? I think no one, that's who!

That is why I am so excited to be working with Idaho® potatoes today! When I got a bag of russet potatoes, and a box of fingerling potatoes, along with my little Spuddy Buddy, you would have thought it was Christmas, and I was opening the best present ever. Well, I kinda was if you look at it from a food blogger (and potato lovers) perspective.

You see, I fell in love with Idaho® potatoes a long time ago. With my Dad being the potato fiend that he was, potatoes were a very big part of my childhood. Then when I began shopping for myself, I asked the produce guy which potatoes were the best. He didn't hesitate when he told me that Idaho® potatoes were #1. Okie dokie, who was I to argue with him?

They really do make the best mashed potatoes, always creamy and never grainy like some other potatoes can be. And when you bake them they get all fluffy inside. Yummm perfect for butter to settle right into! #drooling

But, back to that lovely box of potatoes, we have been enjoying potatoes with burgers, steak, chicken, and pork chops. They just go with everything and we never seem to get tired of them. Especially when you make Fully Loaded Crash Hot Potatoes, Creamy Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes, Crispy Potatoes with Spicy Aioli, and Deviled Egg Potato Salad.

Speaking of potato salad, I have some in my fridge right now and it is calling my name. I know what I will be having, with my sandwich, for lunch!

Have you ever had purple potatoes? If so what did you make? If not, what would be the first thing you would make?
