Ease a sore throat by putting a slice of baked potato in a stocking and tying it around your throat.

Potatoes have to be my all time favorite vegetable! I know they arent the healthiest for us to eat but when craving comfort food mashed potatoes hear I come.  LOL

Idaho potatoes, Yukon Gold, or Red's I use a lot. So many different ways to make them!

When my niece (now 30) was a child, she had to write an essay about her family and its cultural heritage - one of her statements was "We are a potato people". I grew up with potatoes at pretty much every lunch and dinner - and we still eat a lot of them. Love them in all forms, and I am quite happy to boil up some potatoes and eat with sour cream, cheese, cottage cheese, butter, a mushroom gravy - whatever!!!

I couldn't live without potatoes! Seriously!

My favorite, baked with sour cream, a little butter, s/p
Second, I have to say roasted with fresh herbs
Third, boiled baby reds with butter and parsley
Then, mashed - sorry mashed fans!

I also keeps cans of diced and whole potatoes in the pantry. In a pinch. You can actually create something pretty good.
A quick pan saute in onion, garlic, rosemary/thyme and olive oil are pretty good; and easy. I also use them now and then in soups, when I am out of fresh.

And, of course stuffed potato skins, stuffed potatoes with a herb cheese or smoked salmon
French fries (white and sweet potatoes)
Grilled, etc.

Endless!!
