My Family Recipe for Potato Casserole

My Family Recipe for Potato Casserole

I had the great pleasure of being raised by my grandmother. This woman is incredible – she was raised on a tobacco farm in the 1940s-1950s. She drove a school bus for her high school at the age of 16 and came home every day to tend to the tobacco and the animals (specifically chickens and pigs). She helped my great-grandmother CHURN THEIR OWN BUTTER and can make the best cornbread. She married my grandfather and the two remained happily in love until he passed away from Pancreatic Cancer in 1997.

Being raised by a strong-willed, Southern grandmother means we were in the kitchen together everyday cooking all of our meals. We made everything from Breakfast Casserole (Southern women love casseroles) to Gingerbread Cookies. I can remember being four years old, standing on a step stool and helping her cut out the little gingerbread men. My current boyfriend is just astounded by the number of meals I can create from memory. What really drives him crazy is that neither myself or my grandmother MEASURE ANYTHING. Our conversations often go like this:

Him: ‘Well how much are you adding?’

Me: ‘I dunno, a little bit’

Him: ‘How do you know that’s enough?’

Me: ‘I just add until it looks right’

Gardening for the Brown Thumb

Recently, I have been trying to teach my daughter how to grow food and flowers as she is learning so much while in her preschool class. They have been going over how flowers grow, why leaves change, and where food comes from. However, I will be the first to admit that I have NO gardening experience whatsoever. I was raised by my Southern grandmother and while she grew up on a farm and had a garden of her own, the green thumb did not pass down.

Cinnamon Apple Chips Are Is A Must Try Fall Recipe

Cinnamon Apples Chips Are A Must Try Fall Recipe

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It is finally the season where apple picking is in full swing. Hayrides, petting zoos, apple cider, apple picking, and pumpkin picking make for a spectacular afternoon out with the family. However, if you are anything like me, when its all said and done I am left wondering what am I supposed to do with all these apples? What recipe can I find to meet the taste buds of my family so they will demolish all of these apples before they rot?

Don’t get me wrong, my kids LOVE apples but not to the extent to match the number of apples we picked on our weekend trip to the Apple Orchard. There is only so much applesauce I can make. So I did what anyone else does, and started googling away.

The biggest problem I found was that it seemed like there was only one component I liked from recipes which left me to continue on my search. I gave my Grandmother a call and she gave me the perfect idea of what to do with the apples. I do not take full credit for this recipe as there are so many variations on the internet, cookbooks, etc. I am just sharing the recipe that I have gone by and worked best for my needs.
