Mel's Crab Salad
I needed 5# of crab salad. I bought two 2.5lb. imitation crab flakes from Sam's. Quickly found out that I did not have the patience to pull the flakes apart, so I stacked the layers and sliced diagonal strips with a sharp knife and set aside. I mixed all the other ingredients in small mixing bowl. Used Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing as that is my favorite ranch dressing. I also add sour cream for additional creaminess. I diced the celery as small as possible by hand as I love the flavor and coloring, but did not want it to overpower the texture and flavor of the salad. I stacked the celery stalks, 4 at a time, cut it into thin strips and then another thin cut across about 4 inches at a time down the entire stalk. All ingredients were in proportion to the 5 lbs. of crab. Due to the amount of salad I was making, I layered first the crab and then the creamy dressing in a large mixing bowl, mixing after each layer. Refrigerated overnight. Flavorful and an excellent choice for one of my three contributions to the family get together for Christmas Day Dinner.

Grandma's Five Cup Salad
Last year I made this recipe exactly as written, times 6, as one of 5 different dishes for my daughter's family/friends baby shower. This year, one year later, my grandson requested this same recipe for his 16th birthday celebration. For a teenager to remember and request a specific dish he enjoyed...well, it just makes my heart sing. Best to refrigerate the salad overnight so the flavors can blend. Stir before serving.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits
After making this recipe for 3 years in Colorado, I knead the dough no more than 8 times. Dough is softer and makes for fluffier biscuits. After kneading, I usually refrigerate the dough while crockpot meal is simmering. I use a rolling pin and a very large mouth glass to cut only 5 biscuits from each batch. Large and fluffy biscuits every time! No changes are made to the temp, but bake a few minutes more until tops are lightly browned. High altitude sometimes requires cooking adjustments.
