My Danish friend, Anne, says that the way to make a house smell like home is to throw some onions in a frying pan. She may just have something there!
Peel and dice potatoes and onions. Saute them in a frying pan with some olive oil, fresh flat-leaf parsley, salt and pepper until caramelized. If the centers of the potatoes are still firm, add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan and cook until evaporated. Repeat this step until the potatoes are tender.
