Potato Skins

One of my husband’s favorite things to do is to watch a football game at home or at a Sport’s Bar and Grill.  He likes to have a drink and some good food, and one of his favorite things to have is Potato Skins.  I saw this recipe on one of my favorite blogs, Life’s Ambrosia, and decided to have my own go at them.  I made one pan and when Chris and I ate them all in about 5 minutes I realized that this recipe was a KEEPER!  I made these for a few football games this season and they are easier to make then you would think!  It does take a bit of time to make them, but most of the time is spent in the oven so you can be doing other things while they are cooking. I hope you will try it out…and there is NO need to wait for the next football game…these are too good to wait till Football season starts again!

Potato Pancakes…yum yum yum!

These Potato Pancakes were sort of an experiment…and a lovely experiment at that!  I had a bunch of potato pulp left over from  scooping out the insides of my potato skins and wasn’t sure what to do with it.  I decided to try and make some potato pancakes and the results were tasty, cheesy and delicious!  I highly recommend trying this recipe if you find yourself with leftover mashed potatoes, or potato pulp of any kind!  I used cheddar cheese in these particular pancakes, but I think parmesan, blue cheese, or any other mix of cheese might be fabulous in these!  You might even want to mash up some potatoes just to make this recipe…it is that good!

Baked Gouda

Christmas is my VERY FAVORITE time of year!  The cold weather, the giving spirit, the Christmas Story coming alive, special time with family and friends, amazing parties and delicious food everywhere…it really can’t be beat!   Every year my husband and I spend the holidays with both of our families starting on about the 23rd.  So before that date, we have one night that is our own special Christmas at home.   We clear the coffee table out of our living room and put the Queen Size Air Mattress out on the floor right next to the fireplace and Christmas tree.  We cover it with blankets and pillows and settle in for an evening of laughing, christmas movies, our own special stocking time and lots of smooching!  haha…it is one my favorite nights of the whole year!  We both turn into excited little children finding joy in giving each other gifts and delighting in the magic of Christmas!    We sleep out in our Christmas zone with the lights on the tree glowing long after the last embers of the fire have died down and it really is perfect!

This year we made dinner together as part of the evening and also made some yummy treats the next morning and day as our celebration continued with watching some football together!  This Baked Gouda made a short visit  to the Christmas zone before we devoured every morsel!  This is a recipe I got from Nancy Fike and it is a very simple recipe that is extremely tasty!   Once again…anything where the main ingredient is oozing cheese and you know it  MUST be good!   Merry Christmas!
