I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Time Saving Scalloped Potatoes

I'm convinced that there is no way to take a good picture of scalloped potatoes. They're just plain ugly. But there is a way to cut cooking time in half!

2 lbs new yellow potatoes, unpeeled
1 onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
Mrs Dash seasoning to taste (or salt and pepper)
3/4 cup shredded cheddar
1/4 cup shredded parmesan

Start by scrubbing the potatoes clean then slice them pretty thinly on a mandolin. New potatoes = no peeling (time saving!) And here's the trick ... place them in a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Then gently simmer for about 5 minutes. Then drain.
Grease an 8" deep baking dish. Starting with some onion slices, layer onions and potatoes alternating as you go. You can also give a few shakes of Mrs Dash every now and then.
In a saucepan melt butter and whisk in the flour. Cook 1 minute then whisk in the milk and cook 1-2 minutes to thicken. Add more Mrs Dash to the sauce then pour over the potatoes and onions in the baking dish.
Top with cheese and bake at 375°F for 35-40 minutes. 

Yep... ugly, but tasty 😋
