Key to Success #1 – Cook the Potatoes
Can you tell that this is a vintage recipe? You don’t often see instructions that say “cook with jackets on.” The jackets are the skins. Cook them with the skins on.

Since you’ll be baking the casserole, you don’t want to cook the potatoes until they’re fully soft like a baked potato. You want them to be firm when you peel and dice them.

You can bake the potatoes in a 425 degree F oven for 45 minutes to an hour. Or you can cook them in the microwave. The cook time depends on the power of your microwave but I would suggest that you cook for 5 minutes then check them and/or flip them and cook another 5 minutes until they are just starting to soften.

You can also cook your potatoes in the Instant Pot. You’ll probably want to reduce the pressure cook time to about 10 minutes so that your potatoes will not be fully soft. You can find the recipe for Instant Pot Baked Potatoes here.

Key to Success #2 – Add the Pimento & Cheese
Pimento and cheese is such a classic flavor combination, at least it is in the south. The Masters is famous for their Pimento Cheese Sandwiches. Do you even know what a pimento is? It’s a pretty red chili pepper that is not really spicy but adds a nice flavor.

We’re using Velveeta cheese for this recipe to add a real creaminess to the casserole. Velveeta melts so well that it’s hard to beat in casseroles.

Key to Success #3 – Top It All Off
The best part of this Pimento Cheese Potato Casserole is perhaps the Corn Flakes that are sprinkled on the top. The Corn Flakes are saturated with butter to make an extra delicious crunchy topping.

You can add more Corn Flakes if you’d like. And let’s be honest, there’s no way I’m stopping at anything less than one stick of butter in this recipe. A little extra butter never hurt anything.

Should I buy the Nokia 7.1?
The Nokia 7.1 is a familiar mid-range phone for the end of 2018: a notch, big bottom chin and dual cameras. But these cameras are pretty good, and the display is lovely.Its build quality is above average though, and with Android One on board and decent performance it’s an excellent mid-range phone with the advantage of three years of guaranteed security updates.

Detective Pikachu Movie Review

Should I Buy the Detective Pikachu?
Detective Pikachu could have been a disaster, but instead it's really a bit of a delight. A game cast, robust world-building, and a sharp script combine to produce a film that should appeal equally to new fans and nostalgia-driven millennials.
It's a low bar to clear, but this is the best videogame movie yet - by some way.
