If we really want to get fancy and the veggie doesn't have to be unusual, half cook cauliflower so it is barely tender. Wrap the cauliflower pieces with cheddar cheese, butter, sauteed onions into filo dough. Cut a few steam vents, Bake until the filo is browned and crisp.

This will blow them away at the potluck or special dinner. It's a bit of work, though.

Now, though - maybe it's time to rethink. I could also use those as a main dish - it wouldn't kill anyone around here to not have meat one day a week, right? Along with some nice bread or rolls - hmmmm. Gotta give that some more thought!

And yes, I still have a recipe box with recipes on folded up pieces of paper, newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, stuff written out by my mother, my grandmother, my godmother - stuff that I've come up with - I just prefer the format to a computer or tablet. It's almost like cooking WITH the person when you make a family recipe with a recipe card that they wrote out. But I'm weird that way, and oddly sentimental.
That's why we share our recipe's so others can try them out.

Horseradish mashed potatoes (works well with instant too if you use that)

1-2 pounds of Yukon gold potatoes washed and peeled & cut into chunks.
1 stick of salted butter
1 cup milk or cream
2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup Engelhoffer creamy horseradish sauce or you can use the Wasabi sauce but use less than 1/4 cup and adjust the spice as needed.

Bring a pot of water to a boil and add cut potatoes.
after potatoes are cooked, mash them with a potato masher, and remaining ingredients and use an electric mixer to make them smooth and creamy or mash with potato masher until creamy and if you like some lumps.

I love (raw, never pre-made or pre-cooked) beet juice with apple OR orange, carrots, ginger and a bit of lemon. It has a beautiful color.
From a purely healthy point of view, it has everything... and I find it tasty, even though some people don't like it...
