"A steak is not a steak without a baked potato on the side, but a good baked potato deserves so much more than to be merely an accessory to the main course . . . a good baked potato is like having a blank canvas that you can paint a most beautiful picture on. It can be the whole meal and for me it often is "
"It's time to write about something that is obviously of utmost importance. Baked Potatoes. Baked potatoes are ruining my life and countless meals I have had to endure through. Let's be honest. Eating a baked potato is like eating paper. There's no flavor, the texture is obviously more redeeming then paper but is not exciting either. Baked potatoes alone are bland and awful so my husband said, "That's why you put all that stuff on it." Oh ok so let's take a piece of paper and put chili and sour cream and cheese on it and I say we get the same results..awfulness. I'm serious people. It's time to wake up! We can't keep eating baked potatoes and taking a bite and say: "My what a lovely baked potato!" False. There is no such thing."
"The stuffed baked potato is like a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. You have the outer potato skin, golden brown from twice-baking, mounted by golden peaks of fluffy mashed potatoes hiding a treasure trove of well-seasoned turkey and vegetables and bearing the mark of Sous Chef's inclusion of Guinness Beer in its making."
