"When a woman stays at home and cooks with good judgment and understanding, peace and happiness result. She thus controls the family's health and destiny, also her husband's mood, disposition and feeling, and assures the futures of her children." - Jaques DeLangre

My Quest For Easy - A new recipe!

Easy Recipe - Potato Surprise!

5 med potatoes, washed and sliced thin
1 med onion, diced
2 carrots, peeled and sliced
2 cups cream, raw is best!
1/2 cup grated cheese
basil, dried
garlic powder
Real Salt

Butter a 9X13 casserole dish. Spread a layer of sliced potatoes over the bottom of dish. (Use about 1/4 of the potatoes.) Sprinkle 1/3 of the sliced carrots over the potatoes followed by 1/3 of the diced onions. Sprinkle basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper over veggies. Repeat 2 more times. Finish with a layer of potatoes. Pour the two cups of cream evenly over the veggies and sprinkle the cheese over top.

Cover the dish. Bake at 350 until the veggies are soft. Mine cooked for about an hour and a half. (I bet it was done sooner, but I was at a meeting!) I made two pans of this and it wasn't quite enough for my family of 8. They all LOVED it!


  1. This sounds so yummy! I love potatoes and I'm always looking for new ways to love them even more :)

  2. I made this last night and though I knew it would be good based on the ingredients (and because you always make good food) the surprise was how incredibly DELICIOUS this is!!! I love this! So yummy! Thanks for sharing :)
