    Ok. First I just have to say I love potatoes no matter how they are cooked. But these look awesome. What a fun tutorial. I especially liked the way you overlapped the ingredients photo's. How clever. I enjoyed my visit so much that I am following you in my little blue slippers! I hope you'll come by and see me when you get a chance. I am writing a post for Make My Saturday Sweet.

    Yup. These look really really good. I love baked potatoes on the grill as long as I don't burn them up completely. :) Take care and thanks for linking. See you next week, my friend? Linda
