Cool fall days are here to stay and I am in a serious craving for comfort food. Cheesy potato dishes always come to mind as we ate a lot of them growing up.

The look a person has on their face when their taste buds are feasting on delicious food – priceless.

What would you say upon taking a big bite of a crispy potato cake, filled with cheddar and ranch seasoning? YUM!

Sweet potato casserole is pretty much like a dessert but we call it a side dish, stuffing disappears along with the turkey, cranberry sauce I could eat by itself (LOVE it!) but mashed potatoes get the least love.
