I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.

I am all for one dish easy to put together meals! I tried a new recipe from my Grand daughter, Samantha last week she’s a busy Mom so she likes easy too, I will definitely make this one again. For just the two of us I changed the amounts to 2 chicken breasts and 5 potatoes, the other amounts I kept the same. Left overs worked well warmed up in the micro wave.
The Christmas cards are finally ready to mail and the goodies ready to package up to send to my four kids my goal for today, I hope your holiday preparations are going well, I’m sure for many of us it will be a very different holiday but there is always next year to think about, and there is hope with a vaccine on its way, a reason to celebrate!!
