All American Roast Beef
Whether you have a gas or electric oven . . . makes all the difference. Whatever a recipe temperature says, if you're using a gas oven, lower 15 degrees . . . for everything. Make sure the roast has been in the rack with aluminum foil underneath that has been coated with Crisco at room temp. for at least an hour. Using my gas oven, I prefer to preheat to 535 degrees and turn immediately to 350 degrees when putting the roast in.

American Potato Salad
My family has made this potato salad for almost 100 years, except for the green onions. For those of you who want a little more zip . . . make sure both the green pepper and onion is grated by hand and use some of the juice from both . . . and finely dice the celery. It's very hard to say how much of these to use. I use about 10+ lbs of red potatoes and at least 2 lg onions and peppers and 18 large eggs. Some of the eggs are sliced thin and placed all over the top of the bowl and sprinkled with paprika. By grating and using the juices, the mixture works overnight and is delicious. This is always a winner, but the prep work takes a while.

Easy and Elegant Pork Tenderloin
I've made this for years. Coat the tenderloin with olive oil and roll in crumbs . . . much easier. I add a little coarse ground pepper and a little extra basil to the mix. I suggest not over-doing the spices . . . takes away from the wonderful flavor of the pork. Instead of a flat pan, I roast it. I haven't met anyone who doesn't like this . . . and it's so easy! I just read some of the reviews mentioning it was too dry. The culprit could be your oven. If you have a gas oven, always reduce the temp. 15 degrees . . . 410 degrees and that goes for everything.
