Wine Wednesday: Judd's Hill Dinner @ Meditrina

Monday Meal: Holiday Cheesy Potatoes

If you're looking for a crowd-pleasing side dish for a holiday dinner or brunch, this one is hard to beat. It's cheesy, baked potatoes au gratin that you can assemble in advance and then cook up after your turkey, ham, roast or whatever comes out of the oven.
