One of the most important holidays in America is Thanksgiving Day, and this Thanksgiving Potatoes and Ham Au Gratin dish is perfect for the occasion.

Also sometimes referred to as “scalloped potatoes”, this is distinctly North American. Some will argue the original recipes for scalloped potatoes came out of Ireland and/or England. However, potatoes are native to America. It follows logically that early European settlers would take advantage of their availability. Regardless of actual region of origin, Thanksgiving Potatoes and Ham au Gratin is, and has been for centuries, an American traditional and beloved dish.

Spanish Queso Relleno de Alcaparrones are just one of the many delightful “finger foods” the Spanish people sometimes enjoy for their lunch, or mid-day meal. A traditional Spanish lunch often consisted of 2, 3, or several “tapas” – appetizers, cold or warm, of various types and textures. This one is a snap to prepare, and the flavor is outstanding, compared to the small effort it takes to prepare.

I love mushrooms. Morels, Shitakes, White Buttons, and lots more. Especially prevalent in Asian cooking, edible fungi is to me a kind of weird yet delightful food. So I decided to do some research and see what else is out there in the world of mushrooms that I haven’t yet tried. This led me to today’s post on:

Plantains Edible and Incredible

Most people (in North America, where I live, anyway) think of the plantains as a kind of banana, only bigger and not as tasty of a fruit. However, while plantains are a relative of the banana, they are, in fact, not a fruit at all. These incredible edible Plantains are actually herbs … and therefore definitely not bananas.

What? You say? These giant “trees” (they grow to heights of over 30 feet) are really overgrown herb plants?
