Oven Roasted Baby Potatoes

This is a very easy and a quick side dish post; oven backed baby potatoes. It can be served as a side dish to pretty much all kind of dishes you like; soups, meat and poultry entrees, fish entrees, and vegan dishes.

  • 6 small white/red baby potatoes, scrubbed and halved
  • 1 tablespoon Italian herbes
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill

  1. Boil the baby potatoes for 10 minutes only, then drain them well.
  2. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
  3. Put the potatoes in a large bowl. Sprinkle the herbs, garlic, salt and pepper, and oil, mix till the potatoes are well coated.
  4. Transfer the potatoes to a baking dish and into the oven.
  5. Turn the potatoes occasionally. In the first 30 minutes, add the fresh dill to the potatoes, and put them back in the oven for another 30 minutes or until golden and tender. -So the whole process may take approx one hour-. 
  6. Finally, serve the potatoes hot or warm, and enjoy.

My fave place that has the BEST kunafa is at Saray

Woo-whoo, I've Been Nominated!!

Well hello my lovely friends, I am back to blogosphere from my mini anniversary/birthday vacation to the beautiful Istanbul.. Guess what?? The weather was perfectly fine -Unlike what's mentioned Here-, it was sunny and warm, no rain at all, except on the last day!
Alrightii, enough about my vacation and let's get to the point of this post... I was informed by the fabulous Naythar Abdalla of Naysdesires Blog -I LOVE her blog, please check it out- that she has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger award... And this is my first blog award EVER!! And I'm soo happy that she included me on a list filled with amazing bloggers, who have been doing this way longer than I have. Really boosted my confidence in blogging... =D Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you sooooo much for that.. =D

So, here are the rules for this lovely award:

  1. Nominate 15 fellow bloggers who are relatively new to blogging.
  2. Let them know that you have nominated them.
  3. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
  4. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.
  5. Add the Versatile Blogger Award picture to your blog post.
So, here are seven little things most of you guys don't know about Sugar & Spice:
  1. I'm affraid of heights, I tend to get sweaty, dizzy and lose my balance. =\
  2. I get really irritated when someone cuts my nails and toe nails -Pretty weird Huh?!-...
  3. 2 years ago, I did Lasik eye surgery. I used to wear specs and I loved how I look with them, but I did it because I am scared to wear contacts for special occasions.
  4. I hate airplanes, I panic and get serious panic attacks before, during, and after the flight!
  5. I get super cranky when I'm hungry.
  6. I'm not pessimistic, but I always expect the worse and prepare myself for it.
  7. Breakfast is my fave meal of the day!
And here are 15 great blogs. I'm not sure if they are necessary supposed to be versatile blogs; some of these are, but most of them focus on either fashion, food, makeup and beauty blogs, but they are totally worth the read. Check them out:

Thank you soo much Nayathr!

Have an amazing weekend peeps...
