MY OTHER RECIPES


Ummmmm, so how did we get here so quickly?

I thought we had another week or so.

And I’m not a last minute planner. At all.

I make lists.

Lots of them.

Months in advance, really.

Except this Thanksgiving really crept up on me.

Thank goodness I have this slow cooker though.

Between the scalloped potatoes and creamed spinach, I may not have to use the oven at all.

Plus, the marshmallows.

You always need marshmallows for Thanksgiving.

There’s no argument here.

You just do.

Now they will melt beautifully in the slow cooker from the residual heat.

BUT!

You know. I always love to pop this under a broiler for color.

Or a blow torch.

You pick.
