The Best-Ever Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

If you are looking for a delicious recipe for scalloped potatoes, you might consider my best-ever scalloped potato recipe. It is not hard, but then again scalloped potatoes are not usually hard, but it does take a bit of time to peel and slice the potatoes and then a while to cook in the oven.

The result? Well, it is delicious. Even my sister-in-law, who does not like scalloped potatoes, likes these ones.

My recipe is not a lighthearted version. It features chicken broth and cream and is a full-flavored, company pleasing dish which qualifies as good old-fashioned comfort food.

Starbucks New Blonde Roast Coffee 2012

Coffee lovers in North America who prefer a slightly lighter coffee roast can look forward to the introduction next year of a new coffee that Starbucks is calling Blonde.

This Veranda Blend is Starbucks' response to research that indicates that 40 percent of U.S. coffee drinkers actually would prefer a lighter coffee and that a whopping 70 percent of coffee sold in grocery stores is a light or medium roast.

If you are interested, you will find more details on my page about the introduction of this new blend, The New Starbucks Roast Coffee Blend and you might find this trailer, which introduces the new blend, worth watching:

A Great Collection of Zombie Coffee Mugs

As Halloween 2011 draws nearer and nearer, I notice that so are the Zombies drawing nearer and nearer. As a matter of fact, this year they are absolutely everywhere, including on the wonderful collection of Zombie mugs that I gathered for Zombie lovers on this page.

The Zombie coffee mug that I have chosen to feature here is not too scary and a somewhat fun take on the brain-eating Zombie. My husband looked at it over my shoulder and said right away that he wanted it. It is available directly from the artist who created it, Shellypint, on Zazzle by clicking here.

Whatever you choose to serve your witches brew up in, I hope you have your Halloween decorations out and that you are busy in the kitchen preparing some of your CULINARY FAVORITES for Halloween 2011.

The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook & Recipes

I have done a lot of Harry Potter reading and writing over the past year and I remember how excited I was when I first stumbled across the new cookbook, The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook by Dinah Bucholz. As someone who spent years looking for Harry Potter recipes, I was very excited about this cookbook.

The publication date was September 18, 2010 and the price at under $15 was pretty reasonable. If you would like to read a bit more about the cookbook please visit my page about The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook by clicking right here.

Are you a Harry Potter fan? Do you have any Harry Potter recipes to recommend?  I am hoping to get around to making chocolate frogs one of these days...
