My belly is full of turkey, cornbread dressing, cranberry sauce, fruit salad, sweet potatoes, and my awesome mashed baked potatoes. I had to make something my gluten intolerant brother could eat and I must say they were delicious. I just reheated and ate them again. One might think that potatoes are just potatoes....not true....these red skinned potatoes and a diced onion were cooked in chicken stock. When they were done, they got mashed up with heavy cream, cream cheese, green onion tops and parsley. They were then put in the oven for 30 minutes. When that was done, I sprinkled real bacon crumbles and shredded cheddar cheese on top. By the time I got to my brother's, the cheese was melted and the potatoes were perfect. He liked them as well.
My precious mom had baked me an Italian Cream cake for my birthday and it is delicious. She knows that is my favorite kind of cake and I must say, she really came through with this one. Lately, her cooking has been not as good as usual, but not this time!!!
