Cooking with Melanie: hash brown casserole

"I am trying out for cheerleading this week. This is the coach's favorite recipe that I make. So I figured this would be a good week to share this recipe. By the time this makes the paper I will know if I made the squad or not. If I do, I might need to make the coach her favorite. If I don't, then she will have the recipe and can make it for herself. Either way I wanted to share it with you! I hope you enjoy my Hash brown casserole."

Make some positive changes this month

I recently ate out with a friend of mine. After I had ordered my sandwich and side, I listened to her carefully place her order. She took great pains to not stress out the server and be labeled a difficult customer, but she had some very particular food choices. Sauces and dressings on the side, no salt added during cooking, substitute broccoli for fries, grilled with no extra butter. When it was all said and done, I was much more interested in her creative meal than my boring old sandwich combo.
