  1. Perfect! Loved it! I used cheddar cheese and cream of chicken soups. The addition of the onion and garlic really brings this up a notch from the other cheesy potatoes with corn flakes on top recipes I've tried. This is how I'm going to make it from now on, minus a little salt.
  2. Very good! Thanks for sharing.


I am a 26 year old living in Minnesota with my finance and his beautiful 12 year old daughter. I love to cook and am totally obsessed with finding great recipes. I have a out of control number of cookbooks that I get teased for it all the time. My favorite time to cook and bake is around the holidays with my family and especially with my step daughter. I have had her in the kitchen helping me since she was 4 years old. She basically knows what to do around the kitchen more than me now! She actually teaches my 24 year old sister how to cook. Anyway, I love this site and can't wait to find more perfect recipes by others just like me. <img src="">
