Nancy, furry friends & all Nancylanders,
I am looking for a chocolate biscotti recipe. I am hoping someone out there has a TNT recipe. Thank you in advance.

I'm helping with a Church Breakfast next month. Could I make the biscuits ahead of time and freeze them either cooked or uncooked?? Also, how do you keep scrambled eggs warm?? I think someone mentioned a website for large numbers of servings? Like gravy, grits and bacon?? Fortunately, I'm not doing this all by myself or I'd be overwhelmed!!!!

All helpful suggestions gratefully accepted and Bless Nancy for this wonderful group!!

Here’s another recipe from my Cooking for Two file which is wonderful for those with an abundance of potatoes or those who are cooking for 1 or 2.

Freezer Mashed Potatoes Recipe

5 lbs. potatoes (about 9 large) peeled & cut into chunks.
2 T. butter, softened
1 cup ( 8 oz) sour cream
2 pkgs. (3 oz each) cream cheese, cubed
1/2 t. onion powder
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper.

Place potatoes in large saucepan & cover w/ water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover & cook 15 - 20 min. or until tender. Drain. In large mixing bowl, mash potatoes w/ butter. Beat in sour cream, cream cheese, onion powder, salt & pepper.

Transfer 1-1/2 cups to a 2 cup baking dish coated with nonstick spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 30-35 min. or until heated through (to eat immediately). Cool remaining mashed potatoes.

Good morning Nancy and all Landers,
Newsletter looks wonderful today. I want to thank all Landers for their suggestions on using my bountiful potatoes. I will most certainly try each and every recipe. The potatoes are Yukon Gold so my sister suggested cooking them with skins on and then mashing them leaving skins on. Adding butter and a little milk then laying parchment paper on sheet pan and putting 1 cup of potatoes in as many places as I had room. Freeze them then remove them and place all in freezer proof bag. We will see how this works out.
