Recipe: Scalloped Potatoes with Onions and Cheddar Cheese | Kitchn

October officially kicks off comfort food season (in my house at least), and these cheesy scalloped potatoes are a decadent way to welcome in the fall. Even if you are cooking for two, there is nothing better than having a pan of these to graze from, whether it’s breakfast or dinner, throughout the week. Scalloped potatoes is the American name for potatoes gratiné.

Vegetarian Turkey? 2 Articles

Many Americans’ Thanksgiving Dream: a Faux Turkey in Every Pot

And I was thinking that meatless burger companies have also introduced a great amount of meatless turkey. I’m wondering why this isn’t well known?

So I suggest also this recipe. It’s not exactly a full turkey, but it counts for turkey roast for the plated entree!

Spaghetti Squash with Marinara Sauce

Surreyfarms. A serene haven in the foothills of Northern California

I know I know, I’m so late to using spaghetti squash as angel hair pasta substitute bandwagon.  My eldest daughter has been telling me for years “Mom, you have to try spaghetti squash instead of pasta, it’s so good! It’s part of the Whole30 plan.”  But honestly I just couldn’t do it! I would tell her “I only have pasta maybe twice a month, and when I crave pasta I want pasta! Not a veggie substitute.” As you can see I’ve known about spaghetti squash for a long time, but just couldn’t bring myself to make it as a pasta substitute. So yeah, I was a holdout.

Vegetable Pot Pie


Good Morning Foodies! I hope you all are having an amazing week and getting all prepared for the upcoming holidays! Today I wanted to share a recipe with you that I am so excited about! Honestly, this might be one of the best meals I have ever made and it was a huge hit with my boyfriend.

I little background story first: I have never been that great of a baker but over the past year or so I have really been trying to sharpen my baking skills. So far, I have made some pretty great things that I am proud of. The other day, I decided to make a pot pie. I didn’t want to use biscuits or a pre-made crust, so I decided to try for a homemade pie crust instead. Also, I decided to try my luck at making this inside of the pot pie, right off…
