Michael Kors' Garlic Roasted Potatoes

Garlic Roasted Potatoes


3 pounds small red potatoes

1/4 cup good olive oil
1
1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons minced garlic (6 cloves)


Cut the potatoes in half or quarters and place in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic; toss until the potatoes are well coated. Transfer the potatoes to a sheet pan and spread out into one layer. Roast in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour at 400 degrees or until browned and crisp. Flip twice with a spatula during cooking to ensure even browning.

Michael David Kors was born on August 9, 1959. As a child (formerly Karl Anderson Jr.), he worked as a model and appeared in TV commercials. He attended nine months of fashion school, but he dropped out when offered the opportunity to design and merchandise his own collection at a trendsetting New York-based boutique. Within three years, Kors’ women’s collections were stocked in America’s major luxury outlets, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdales. Today, the Michael Kors product line includes clothing, handbags, watches, eyewear, jewelry and accessories, shoes, and fragrances.

As American as Apple Pie

As American as Apple Pie

Have you ever heard the saying, “as American as apple pie?” This phrase is misleading, considering that neither apple pies nor apples originally came from America. Apples are, in fact, native to Asia and weren’t even known to North America until the Europeans arrived. And apple pie, as we know it, first originated in England, where it developed from culinary influences from France, the Netherlands, and even the Ottoman Empire.

Printing Quiz

  • Moving or advancing slowly, timidly, or quietly

  • A person who exhibits creepy behavior

  • The shifting position of the page in a saddle-stitched bind

In printing, creep refers to the shift in paper that occurs when folded sheets are bound together, causing the middle pages to extend slightly beyond outside pages.
