A classic potato dish with four varieties of cheese, garlic and a nice spicy kick! A perfect side dish for any occasion.

Okay, three things…


I saw it over the weekend. SO good. You have to go see it. I loved the books so I had high hopes for the movie. Seriously, so well done. I’m already itching to see it again and even pre-order the movie. I even went as far as to see when the next movie will be out… I know what I’ll be doing this time next year!

Also, furniture shopping.

We went shopping for a new table this weekend, but when we were done the kids wanted to wander. Who could blame them? Looking at furniture is fun even if you’re not buying it. Is it just me or do you feel compelled to kind of drop down on all comfy looking couches and chairs. It’s basically the goldilocks issue for me. You think it looks comfy, but you don’t know until you sit down. Even if you’re not shopping for chairs or couches, you’re still compelled to try out the comfy looking ones.

And …we’re getting more snow this week! Seriously, make it stop! I’m so over snow. I want sun, flowers and warmth! It would figure that our new table and chairs have a delivery date smack in the middle of it all, which means we’ll probably have to wait to get them. Just my luck.

Make that four things, because… these potatoes!

Is it just me or do scalloped potatoes scream spring to anyone else? I think for some reason I associate them with Easter even though we’ve always been a mashed potato kind of family, even growing up. But I love scalloped potatoes. What’s not to love?

Layers of thinly sliced potatoes with lots of cheese, garlic and cream. It’s heavenly.

This particular variety of scalloped potatoes features not one or even two, but four varieties of cheese, freshly minced garlic, cream and a nice kick from spicy red pepper flakes. Be sure to add this tasty recipe to your Spring and Easter plans!
