In a pot of boiling water dip mint leaves in for 5 seconds. Remove. Shock in a bath of ice water.

Add 1 glove chopped garlic, 1/2 shallot, 1 sprig rosemary chopped, 2 sprigs thyme (leaves only), 2 tablespoons olive oil, season liberally with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Line baking sheet with foil. Place potatoes cut side down on baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Flip potatoes over and bake for an addition 15 minutes until golden brown and tender. Add into a small mixing bowl 1 teaspoon of butter and potatoes, mix until butter is melted.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
