Red Skinned Potato Salad
Here is what I did to make one large bowl (4 quart size) of potato salad. 5 pounds of red potatoes, scrubbed and diced BEFORE boiling. Boiled for about 15 min till fork tender. After boiling, drain potatoes and placed on a cookie sheet to cool. After cooled I added: 6 diced, hard boiled eggs,diced into little pieces one 2.52oz box of Oscar Meyer pre-cooked bacon (warmed in microwave to make crispy), diced 2 stalks of green onions, diced 3 celery stalks (not 3 bunches, just 3 stalks!), 2 tablespoons of prepared mustard, 1 cup of Miracle Whip, 1 cup of mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Sprinkle top of salad with paprika. It was DELISH!!!!! Everyone loved it and I'll always make it exactly this way! This served 10 people with some left over!

Deviled Eggs
Of course I adjusted the recipe like everyone else did! Here's what I did and every single egg was gone in minutes!!!! I've always had issues over or under cooking my eggs and when I peeled them chunks of the white would come off too..... Here is the best way to boil them: Cover eggs with COLD water plus an extra inch, add 1 tsp salt to the water. Bring to a rolling boil. Boil eggs for only 2 minutes, then cover the pan with a lid and remove the pot from heat and let it sit covered for 15 minutes. Drain eggs and run cold water over eggs till cool enough to peel, or refrigerate to peel later. Eggs peel best under running cool water. They cooked and peeled perfectly when I did it this way. I boiled 15 eggs and added 1 teaspoon of prepared mustard and about 1/4 cup of MIRACLE WHIP, maybe even a little more to make it creamier! That makes all the difference in the taste, do not use mayo!! I tried the baggie method but when I squirted it out, well, let's just say it looked like yelow logs! So I used my piping bag, as others suggested and they looked beautiful! Be sure to sprinkle with paprika (I did not add to the mix)! DELISH!!!!!!!

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili
DELISH! So easy! I scaled the recipe to 16 so we could freeze some for lunches. I used 2 packages of McCormick MILD Chili Seasoning and one 16oz jar of MEDIUM Pace Picante. Served over elbow macaroni, and everyone loved my Chili Mac!
