Recently I acquired some older but “new to me” cookbooks….thank u Lois!

Needless to say I dug right in and I’ve been eagerly going through them in search of new ideas and inspiration.


My gawd flipping through cookbooks makes me hungry! LOL

I’m really looking forward to testing some of the recipes that caught my eye, they sound amazing.

Of course, I’ll be sure to share the best finds here on the blog so that you can enjoy them with me.

This is one of the recipes I tried recently.

I tweaked it a bit to simplify it, but basically stuck to the original. It turned out fantastic.

If you love potatoes gratin, this dish is a delicious twist on the original.

Serve it up as a side to some grilled chicken or other meats. Or help yourself to a bigger serving and have it for lunch with a nice side salad.

Enjoy and stay safe…
