...and how did she forget the taters?
As MotherMe noted....the cranberry bread recipe is nice, but ya left out the potato casserole recipe.
There was sort of a reason I did, though.
I am not a fan of pre-packaged anything. Sure, I admit, I use cake mixes from time to time. There's a coffee cake that I make which can be made from scratch or by using that stuff that rhymes with smishquick; guess which one gets made more often. And I admit to the sin of using condensed soups from time to time while cooking.
But mostly, I belong to both the Eat Local and Slow Foods schools of thought. Buy fresh local ingredients whenever you can is the Eat Local bit. Slow Food, as one might suspect, is the antithesis of fast food; i.e., something that you take time to make, and take time to enjoy.
So I cringe both to admit that I love, love, LOVE this potato casserole and that it includes several things that usually are not in my house, let alone in my lexicon.
And after all that moaning and wailing, when you actually see the recipe, you will probably be asking what I'm fussing over.
