GranMa Sandy’s Vegetable Casserole
A good way to get children to eat vegetables. GranMa Sandy often made this dish for her children and they always liked this crunchy vegetable alternative.

When I’ve made this dish, everyone seems to like it much more on the next day as leftovers. I’ve taken to making this dish the day before a holiday meal and placing it in the fridge. Then cooking it for 15 to 20 minutes before serving to thoroughly heat it up.

Scalloped Potatoes

Scalloped Potatoes

Vickie’s Scalloped Potatoes
One of our favorite items to set beside a great family feast. Not everyone in our family likes stuffing. So I began making a special potato dish to go along with those family holiday meals.

I’ve always loved scalloped potatoes, but it took some time for me to find a recipe I liked. And then longer to get that recipe just right.

Over time, with a little tweaks here and there, I finally settled on a hit. But after our young son decided he loved the dish too, I knew we finally had the right recipe. Not an easy task for a parent with a picky eater!

Vickie’s Potatoes Au Gratin
A simple way to spruce up your dinner table for the holidays. This is an easy recipe to make, though it does take some time to bake. It’s well worth it.

I found this recipe in a box at my Grandmother’s house. It was a clipping from the local paper, with hand written notes next to some of the ingredients and directions. I’m pretty sure those notes were made by my Maw. In our family, we called her Maw Stoots.  I’ve made my own little tweaks to the recipe to fit my families tastes. I hope you like it.
