The holidays are my favorite time of year for a varieties of reasons. The traditions, the festivities, the magic and oh the food. I find myself wishing for more throughout the year. How unfair is it that we only get lavish feast a few times a year? The turkey (or ham), the mashed potatoes, yam, cranberry sauce, the list is endless.  But my favorite dish at the holiday meal is my grandmother Marie’s famous Cheesy Potatoes. Oh my foodgasm they are delicious. (I’m sharing her special recipe below. You’re welcome.)

Unfortunately, she only makes her Cheesy Potatoes once a year. :( Wouldn’t it be great if we could get more of our favorite holiday traditions?  Repeat after me: “More is Better. More is Better.” What would you like more of this holiday season?

This season and (who are we kidding, every season) Cottonelle Clean Care has more – 25 percent more sheets per roll than the competitor to be exact. Which is great because you’ll spend less time replacing the roll and more time with family. Eating more of Grandma’s CHeesy Potatoes, I’m sure.

    Thanks for the fantastic recipe! I have to say that I love Cottonelle too. It’s nice that they are generously packing those rolls with so much more.
    This holiday season, I want more time to relax!

    I too would love more time in the day, not only to get things done but mostly to spend with my family. And my favorite charity is the Down syndrome support and advocacy nonprofit I founded.

    What I’d really like is 25% more money! But 25% more roast leg of lamb would be a close second.
