Old Fashioned Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes

As I stated in my last post I grew up in a very meat and potatoes family, and generally those potatoes were either boiled or mashed. When Mom progressed to trying other types of potatoes these were one of her favorites and one of mine.

My Mother’s Recipes

My dear Mother passed away almost 2 years ago now and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of her and miss her. I grew up primarily in Kansas and Nebraska with a meat and potatoes Father. We almost always had some type of meat, primarily beef and chicken, potatoes and either corn, green beans, peas or carrots. I didn’t taste things like broccoli, squash, and cauliflower until I was out on my own. Once my folks retired and became snowbirds going to Arizona each winter they started going to lots of potlucks and get togethers and Mom became much more varied in her cooking.  

I was recently going through her cookbooks and recipe cards and it brought back so many memories of her telling me about new recipes she was trying and how proud she was of the results she was getting. I am going to be posting some of the recipes I know were her favorites and that my family and I enjoyed when we visited. Unfortunately I don’t have pictures of most of these and being single I can’t cook them all up for just myself in order to get pictures but I hope that you will try some of them and enjoy them!

Lemon Monkey Bread

Lemon Monkey Bread

As I stated in my last recipe I have been making monkey bread for years and love it, the ease of making it and of course the flavor. When I saw this recipe for Lemon Monkey Bread on the Pillsbury site I just had to give it a try. I can’t say that it will make my favorites list for monkey bread – I really prefer monkey bread with cinnamon! But……this does have a really good flavor and is a very nice change of pace from regular monkey bread. It’s not difficult to make and because the Grands biscuits are larger makes a bigger batch. I had some leftover and reheated it in the microwave and it reheated well. I would love to hear what you think of this compared to regular monkey bread!
