Home-Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
Great potatoes. KS girl here so I have def made my share of fried potatoes many different ways including these. Frying in bacon grease is also excellent. I keep saved grease in fridge for many reasons, mostly when I am too lazy to thaw & fry bacon for green beans, baked beans, etc. Sorry, getting off track here. I was actually only leaving review to add a little trick my gramma taught me. No boiling. Instead, after frying a bit, pour in about 1/8c or so of water in really hot skillet of taters and cover. Steams potatoes the rest of the way thru. I then fry a little longer to get the good crunchy bottoms my daughter and I like.

Scalloped Pineapple

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
This is the dish my gramma would make for families that were suffering a loss and dealing with funeral issues. Wonderful comfort food. Only diff in recipe is about 3/4c. brown sugar instead of white, 1 stick butter (really should be butter not margarine for ultimate flavor), and no seasonings. We melt butter in bottom of dish, mix everything else, and pour over the butter. Because of it's richness and my lack of self-control, this is a rare treat when it's not for social functions.
