Cade is soooo not the jealous type. I’m not really either. From the moment we’ve known each other any of that stuff just didn’t pop up with us. We instantly clicked and trusted each other. And you’re probably wondering why in the world I’m telling you this, well because this garlic roasted potatoes with tzatziki recipe all goes back to a date I had in Portland, Oregon.
I wish I remembered more about it, I’m sure we had a fun time together, but what I really remember is that we went to some little Greek restaurant, and it was legit. We had these yummy roasted potatoes which we dipped in a garlicky sauce which I assume must have been tzatziki. Gosh, Ryan something, where are you to remind me?!
Shoot, I can’t remember his last name. That’s horrible. Sweetest guy ever. And I actually really liked him but felt totally one sided so I didn’t pursue that. Anyway, it was dang good and now I love making an extra garlicky tzatziki and dipping those darn good potatoes in them. Easy. Delicious. Done.
And before we go, I wanted to chat about Bombfell. We’ve been a little crazy about what we share on the site because we don’t ever want to share something we don’t absolutely adore. I know, this isn’t food and you might be a little skeptical but we are totally and completely sold on Bombfell.
I love spending time with Cade but he is a picky clothes shopper which means our shopping trips take longer and he never finds anything he likes or if he does it’s never a good fit or the right size so we end up empty handed. That gets pretty darn old pretty darn fast. So when we found a male version of Stitch fix but that was even better because you get to preview and make changes to the clothes your stylist picks I pretty much forced Cade to try it.
And now I’m going to pressure you into it because I know you are still struggling to think up a father’s day gift, I know you could use a $25 credit (Just click HERE) to get started and I know your guy will much prefer to get clothes shipped to him to try on at home and he can send anything back in a prepaid envelope and he doesn’t have to pay a dime if he doesn’t like it. It’s worth it. Seriously. We’ve actually kept everything we’ve been shipped and that’s never happened in a single shopping trip. Hip hooray!

Hi Carrian! You have the best recipes and I enjoy your stories too. I am going to try the potato recipe because I really really like potatoes, white or sweet.
One question though, in case I make these for someone else…How do you pronounce “tzatzki” ?
By the way, that will be dairy free. I have to do both, the gluten free and the dairy free, so please send more recipes of that persuasion. Thanks!
It’s a little crazy, zat-ZEE-Key. And good to know! I’ll find more gf/df recipes to share!
