German Spaetzle Dumplings
Delicious! Here are some tips that might help first-timers: 1. Don't skip the nutmeg. I was skeptical, but it really works in this recipe. 2. I added two exta tablespoons of flour to thicken the batter/dough. 3. Bat the eggs and milk together and add it all at once. 4. Sray a colander and a rubber spatula with Pam and use that to extrude the dumplings. 5. Boil the dumplings in chicken broth instead of water. I doubled the recipe and used a 32-ounce can of broth. The dumplings absorbed all the broth. 6. Melt a stick of butter in a skillet. Dump the spaetzle in and "stir fry" it for a minute or so. 7. I added parmesan cheese to the spaetzle after I buttered it. Delicious!

Red Skinned Potato Salad
USE HELLMAN'S REAL MAYONNAISE AND YOU CAN'T GO WRONG. If you want to lighten up the recipe, use half Hellman's Mayonnaise/half sour cream & chives. I've also used green onions instead of regular. Delicious!

Irresistible Pecan Pie
I don't like pecan pie, therefore, I didn't have a tried-and-true recipe... until now. I made this pie for Thanksgiving and followed the recipe to a T. My mother and grandmother, both lifelong pie bakers, found it to be delicious. Even I liked it... for a pecan pie. Lots of compliments on this one.
