Goat cheese scalloped potatoes

Before we moved away from North Carolina I asked a few close friends if they would want to get together and cook! One of my most favorite ways to remember someone is to honor them through food! Making their recipes helps me remember all of the wonderful times we had together and fills my belly {who is going to complain about that!?!}

My friend Katie, who I actually knew from college in Ohio, jumped on the opportunity and decided she wanted to make her dad’s recipe for “Bob’s Potato Gratin with Goat Cheese and Garlic”. I was so excited because the previous year, she and her sweet family spent Easter with mine at our house since we both lived so far away from family and this was the dish she brought! They went perfect with my Crock Pot Easter Ham , Celebration Salad and Sunrise Mimosas!

Katie and I were reunited one day at church. We were out on the playground after the service letting the kids play and she walked up to me and asked if she looked familiar to me. I immediately recognized her but was lost for a name until she said it! It was such a fun and crazy reunion because we lived in a small town in North Carolina a long way from Ohio!! So the chances of this happening were pretty slim! But it was such a great reunion and I am so thankful that we were able to spend time together catching back up and reminiscing about our college classes, teachers and adventure trip to the Smoky Mountains our senior year (we had a super cool major! Recreational Therapy & Occupational Therapy!) p.s. we did not plan to be twins…I guess, great minds think alike!

Let’s Bake Them Together!
