Cauliflower au Gratin

Cauliflower Au Gratin

So I always wonder how the winter is going for everyone – we’re going to be up to 58 tomorrow but I’m bummed because it’s supposed to rain. But it was supposed to snow, so we’re lucky for this heat wave. Then down to a more seasonal 15 degrees by the end of the week. It seems the perfect time to tuck into some comfort, like this Cauliflower Au Gratin.

Chicken Pot Pie - top with biscuit, pie crust, potatoes or puff pastry

Chicken Pot Pie like you WISH your Grandma made!

not to "dis" grandma, but this is outstanding!!

I originally posted this Chicken Pot Pie in November of 2011, one of my very first posts! Today, as I made it again, I updated with new photos. That night, I had been looking at Time’s Money Issue and became sidetracked. Pretty soon, I was clicking on one link after another; you know how that goes, right?

Country Souffle

Simple Country Souffle – From Anything

If you’ve thought a Souffle was a fancy dish, the bastion of a master chef, think again. I was charmed by this simple recipe from my Grandmother’s 1917 cook book. Not as tall or high rising as a fancy souffle, this is a simple, country souffle and is absolutely delicious. No stress and worry free, a souffle like this is right at home at breakfast, brunch or as a simple side.

Chicken Fried Steak with Country Gravy

Chicken Fried Steak with Country Gravy

It’s often said by “experts” in the field of nutrition that there are no “bad” foods, but I do have to wonder about Chicken Fried Steak – it just tastes so darned good! A huge fave of Child Number Two, Kraid, who has to have it when his birthday rolls around. I pull out the cast iron and go to town. Or maybe to country?
