"At my table, sit with me. I'll pour coffee or some tea. Perhaps we'll share our tears and laughter, and be friends forever after.


Welcome! Come on in, pull up a chair, have a cup of coffee and take a look at recipes from different cookbooks, vintage finds from vintage cupboards and enjoy sharing memories.

In one short hour...............

you can go from this...........

to this............and be enjoying the most wonderful new way to serve a potato with your meal!
I fixed these for a side with grilled steak last week. They are full of flavor and so easy to fix.
 
Cheese and Herb Potato Fans
 
8 medium potatoes
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 Tbs. minced fresh chives
2 Tbs. minced fresh sage
2 Tbs. minced fresh thyme
 Preheat oven to 425.F. With a sharp knife, cut each potato into 1/8 in. slices, leaving slices attached at the bottom; fan potatoes slightly and place in a greased 13 x 9 in. baking dish. In a small bowl, mix butter, salt, and pepper. Drizzle over potatoes.
 
Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until potatoes are tender. In a small bowl, toss cheeses with herbs; sprinkle over potatoes. Bake about 5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
Enjoy!
