Red Skinned Potato Salad
All the raves are true! This is one of the best potato salads I've ever made. I usually make the recipe just as written the first time, but this time my husband bribed me, saying that he would wash the bacon pan if I would add a little mustard. Who can turn down an offer like that? So I added a couple of tablespoons of yellow mustard, which gave it a nice subtle bite. I wish I had saved out half of the bacon to add right before serving. The crunch from the bacon was great when I first made this and tasted for seasoning. By the next day at picnic time, that crunch was gone, though the whole thing had a good bacon-y flavor.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes
I made these again last night, and there was some pretty stiff competition to snag one of the leftovers for lunch today! My whole family loves this comforting dish. I like to add diced ham to make it more like an entree.

Spicy Indian Chicken and Mango Curry
Some in my family can't eat hot foods, so I substituted mild curry paste for the spicy stuff. It was still really tasty. I also substituted coconut oil for the vegetable oil--gives a little more flavor and healthier too. The recipe makes a lot--four very generous servings or, more likely, six normal ones. Best thing about this recipe is the lovely fresh taste from the mangoes and cucumber. Worst thing is the prep time--no way is it 25 minutes to cut up raw chicken, prep the mangoes, seed and slice the cuke, peel and slice the shallots. It's worth it, but this isn't a speedy recipe--unless you have a sous chef!
