Simply Potatoes

Below is a review for Simply Potatoes submitted by Author Sharon Hays.  

On a scale of 1 - 10 I give Simply Potatoes a 10!
Hello friends. Here is a link to products that I 'simply' love to use when making dishes with potatoes and I'm in a hurry. Also now they are including 'simply creamy macaroni and cheese' that I have got to try. The ready to cook; half-done already, make it easy to skip peeling and extra time of using the raw whole potato. But I can gaurantee you will love the convenience and taste of these great potatoes. Also the new creamy 'Simply Macaroni and Cheese' has been added to their already line of hashed browns, sliced, mashed and cheesy potatoes,Try them, you'll be a fan as I am. Below is a recipe i copied from the Simply potatoes site.
Below is the recipe for Potato Salad from the Simply Potatoes website, they have many other recipes as well.
