This recipe is soooooo easy! I made this about 3 times per week last summer with green beans from my mother-in-law's garden. It's the perfect side for a lean protein for a healthy meal, and is tasty enough to stand up to a heartier main dish. Fresh garden green beans are the best, but in [...]

Cheesy potatoes are my go-to dish if I'm cooking for a large group of people. They are so versatile and a guaranteed crowd-pleaser (unless you are entertaining a group of people who do not tolerate lactose). I've made them for breakfast (great for living on the west coast and college football starts at 9 AM!), [...]
