Home-Fried Potatoes
I made these quite a while ago- as I recall they were good, but a bit bland and didn't have the crisp I was looking for. The BIGGER problem was that when I put the potatoes in the skillet they popped and sizzled- sending hot oil airborn the whole time I cooked- Ow... I discovered that chopping them and baking about 17 minutes (I think I settled at 375) and Then tossing them on the skillet... mmm... perfect. For those who fuss about an extra pot- I use an oven safe skillet. I simply pull it out of the oven, use the spatula to free up the potatoes and put in enough oil to fry.

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches
I'd give this three and a half if possible - it's an awesome Base - but not really great as is. It's just bland as written. The second time I made it I went made it about 1/4mustard and 3/4mayonnaise - and replaced the green onion with relish. This was a great improvement - but next time I'm going to make it half mustard and half mayonnaise for the base. (in other words 1/4 cup of each). I'll also probably double the paprika - or add a 1/4 tsp of chili powder or cayenne - something to give just a tiny kick. I'll let you know how that comes out. It was definitely better with more mustard and the relish the second time around. This is a great base - but be ready to experiment (though that's half the fun or a recipe to me)

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans
I have a suggestion - for anyone who hates the gassy phenomena that follow a bean dish. Soak the beans overnight in water - rinse and refill with enough water to cook. Boil the beans, just to the point that they're at a rolling boil and drain one more time - then proceed with the recipe as written. Wonderful flavor and texture, but no gas :) double win
