Potatoes can be hum-drum or, depending on how you make them, spectacular! These fall into the spectacular category because they’re the yummiest, cheesiest, most crowd pleasingest scalloped potatoes you’ve ever had. Oh, did I mention easy? Yes ma’am! They are absolutely perfect for a pot luck or a big family dinner. They’re rich and delicious and full of cheesy goodness.

I LOVE cooking on holidays. I know lots of you probably dread it, but if you have some dependable recipes and don’t put too much pressure on yourself to get super-fancy, you can produce a great meal that will satisfy everyone and not be too much work for you. The key is planning and keeping a list handy of what you need to do. I make a pretty detailed list because I tend to forget the important things like ‘set the table’ which causes me to rush around like a crazy woman when everyone arrives. So, keep it simple, make your list (preferably the night before) and get cooking!
