No Matter how busy life gets, I like to spend the time planning, preparing and serving a meal that brings smiles to faces of my family and friends. It is the most wonderful way to express my love...

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes
These potatoes make a great side dish. They are easy to do, have a great base flavour from the herbs & spices, and the balsamic vinegar gives them a really great kick of flavour at the end. Delicious!
2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
2 pounds small red potatoes, quartered
1 tablespoon finely chopped green onion
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes, green onions and garlic; toss to combine. Add the thyme, rosemary and nutmeg; toss well. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until potatoes are hot.
Transfer to a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until potatoes are golden and almost tender. Add the vinegar, salt and pepper; toss well. Bake 5-8 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender.
