  1. What a yummy potato dish...I put some shredded Swiss cheese on mine...and I cut the recipe in half and it worked great for 2...this will be made again...made for "For Your Consideration" tag game...
  2. OH WOW...HOW YUMMY?!!!!!!!!<br/>Made as written, except used Philly low fat cooking cream, which has a hint of cream cheese about it.<br/>Comfort food at it's very best, this was thoroughly enjoyed and the leftovers fought over!!<br/>A big fat five stars for you loof!!!<br/>Made for AUS/NZ RECIPE SWAP#76.
  3. I scaled back for 2 serves and used 4 small Carisma potatoes (low GI), 1 large and 1 small onion and left the rest of the ingredients as per 2 serves and got 3 very healthy serves which we all enjoyed. I particular liked the idea of sauteing off the onions till soft as I think it bought out their sweetness more, also parsley is liste3d in the ingredients but not in the directions I assumed it went in with the garlic and seasonings. I baked as directed at 175C fan forced and 195C fan forced and used an 8x8 cake tin. Thank you Baby Kato, made for Everyday A Holiday.
  4. Great potatoes! Other than adding a little sea salt, and using 2 onions instead of 4 (DH is not a huge onion fan) I followed the recipe as written. They were nicely cooked and not swimming in cream sauce. I LOVED the sweetness of the onions and would have preferred to use the full amount required. Made for I Recommend Tag.
  5. I was trying to find something to do with 3 large potatoes that were just past their prime and found this and decided to try it. WOW; so glad I did, followed the recipe except for adding chedder chees to each layer and it was so easy and soooo good. It was even better the next day warmed up, DH has declared this a favorite - no wonder you've already gotten so many great reviews. A well deserved 5 stars from us to add your collection. Thanks Kato for a great recipe that we'll be using often.


I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them.
