Join Me at the Live Facebook Chat with “Roots” Cookbook Author Diane Morgan + Prize Pack Giveaway


How many of you used some kind of root vegetable last week? I went through nearly 10 pounds of potatoes myself in 7 days! From a delicious potato soup I made for Thanksgiving Eve, to the essential mashed potatoes we had at our actual Thanksgiving dinner, these vegetables really make the meal. That’s why I’m going to the live Facebook chat with Diane Morgan, author of the new “Roots” cookbook. Even though potatoes are pretty classic holiday fare, Diane Morgan will be sharing som eof her new recipes and do-ahead appetizer ideas for all your holiday events, from family get-togethers to potlucks.


Diane’s newest cookbook Roots: The Definitive Compendium is on store shelves now and has already been hailed as one of’s 10 Best Cookbooks of 2012! As a “Real Mom” of two, Diane knows the challenge of preparing healthy fare during the holiday season, so she’ll also be offering a few tips for cooking nutritious but festive meals.

To join the chat, simply “like” the Potatoes, Taters and Spuds Facebook page and begin posting your questions and comments for Diane on the page wall at 5 p.m. PST/8 p.m. EST on November 26. RSVP here today! During the Facebook chat you’ll have the chance to win Diane’s new cookbook – just in time for the holiday season!

    I’m all for the regular mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes are one of my all time favorite foods. Thank you!

  3. Amanda Phillips says

    I love twice baked potatoes but have yet to find a recipe that is as good as the local bbq place… And they won’t share theirs, those meanies!

    PS, if you have one, let me know!

  4. Terri Moore says

    I love using left-over baked potatoes and slicing them up and browning them in a cast iron skillet with sliced onions and olive oil -the crispier the better.

  5. Lauren O. says

    Baked potatoes with cheddar, shredded turkey, spinach, and bacon bits is one of my favorite meals.
