This month’s Potato Tastemaker 2K10 challenge was Nutrition on a Budget. I had to create a nutritious dish for 4 with only $10 – using potatoes of course!

First, a few facts about potatoes:

  • one medium-size potato has just 110 calories and is absolutely fat free
  • one potato provides 45% of your daily value of vitamin C
  • when eaten with the skin, a potato has more potassium than a banana
  • potatoes are often one of the best values in the produce department, costing (on average), just $.25 per pound

For more potato goodness, tips, and recipes, check out Mom’s Dinner Helper from the US Potato Board.

Now, watch and see what I created:

Make sure you click over to the ModernMami.com YouTube channel and rank the video. You’ll have to sign in, but it’s super easy and free to create a YouTube account if you don’t already have one.

Here’s how to rank the video:

  • View the ModernMami #tastemaker challenge 2 video at YouTube. Just click that link to go there.
  • Sign in with your YouTube account or Google account; either works.
  • Click the stars under the video to rank it.

That’s it!

Make sure to spread the word to your friends!

Rank the video. Pretty please?


Don’t remember what I made for part 1 of the challenge? I showed you how to make rellenos de papa…with a salmon twist.

Disclosure: As a Potato Tastemaker challenger, for round 2 of the challenge, I was provided with $10 for creating my dish. Additionally, I received a few kitchen gadgets and a recipe book. No other compensation received.

May I simply say what a relief to find a person that genuinely understands what they’re discussing over the internet.

Hey there! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.

Does operating a well-established website such as yours require a
large amount of work? I’m completely new to running a blog but I do
write in my diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my
personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any
kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.

Do not choose anything that hints at any kind of hatred or violence.
Performing so can make the entire adult relationship course of action much more personable and “actual”.

get more attracted to them.
