Connie’s mother from Southern Italy taught her the recipe when she was a teenager, and Connie has since passed on the recipe to her own daughter.

Potato & Pumpkin Bake

Casey is a self-confessed couch potato who has put a different spin on her mum’s potato bake recipe. The vegetarian jazzed up the recipe by adding pumpkin soup, and it has become such a hit that her friends have dubbed the dish ‘CaseyTato’. She loves cooking her recipe almost as much as she enjoys running her biography writing business with her mum.
