I am a mother, a grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches.

Greek potatoes

This is Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and we have the Big Meal underway. It is traditional cooking and pretty easy.

The fact is not everyone likes some of the standards, like mashed potatoes, like my husband for instance. 

If you are looking for a wonderful alternative I have to pass on my sister's recipe for Greek potatoes. So easy and so, so good.

Here it is here.

Now back to the kitchen.
