What’s your favorite dish to bring to a holiday potluck?

OK, so I’ve never actually brought this dish to a holiday potluck, but I feel like if I did, I would be crowned the hero of the night. It’s Martha Stewart’s Deep Dish Pumpkin Meringue Pie, and let’s just say that it would make quite the entrance.

Sweet Potatoes vs. Mashed Potatoes?

This isn’t a fair question! They’re both necessary. But if forced to choose, I would have to say mashed potatoes. Preferably with some oyster broth added in, which may sound weird, but not if you think about how delicious New England clam chowder is, right?

Favorite weird holiday leftover meal?

My husband puts everything that’s left over in a skillet, heats it up, mixes it up, and then places it on top of a sliced dinner roll. He calls it his special Thanksgiving slop.

What’s another blog that inspires your food POV?

Oh, there are so many! Right now, I’m really loving: The Yellow House and Lottie + Doof.

Thanks Amelia!
