Cheesy Creamed Spinach
I make this for my daughter all the time but make it a little healthier. It still ends up being very rich tasting and nobody notices the missing calories. I use milk, not cream, and throw in a tablespoon of flour to thicken it up a little. I use a dash of cayenne pepper for a little kick. Instead of butter, I use Earth Balance or Smart Balance and I ALWAYS use organic baby spinach. Conventional spinach is absolutely loaded with pesticides, more so than other veggies. It's much better for you with those little tweaks and still sooooo good.

Hash Brown Casserole II
This was a big hit and plates were licked clean. I made slight changes. Cream of mushroom soup instead of chicken, light sour cream, used half the amount of cheese, and reduced the butter. Even after all that, it was still plenty rich enough. I threw in some ham to make a main dish instead of a side. And it needed a full hour to cook. At 40 minutes the potatoes were still somewhat crunchy. The crumble topping went on halfway through so it wouldn't burn. This would be superb on a lazy Sunday morning for breakfast with the addition of sausage or ham in it. It also opens itself up to tons of variations: pico de gallo with taco mix, w/ground beef & scallions, and you'd have a tex-mex casserole. Can't wait to experiment. So good.

Yorkshire Pudding
you def don't need to refrigerate overnight. I let sit on my counter for 15-20 minutes while the fat drippings are sizzling in the oven and it turns out just like mom's. nom nom nom.
