Road trip! Off to the great white north we go! Well, maybe not that far north. Ok, north an hour to Brighton Michigan to the 2nd Annual Mini-Mi. On the way, hubby tells me Michigan State is playing Michigan in Ann Arbor. Which we will go right by. So glad we weren’t driving south right then!… MORE

Oktoberfest Potato Salad
Made for Recipe Group. Brings back memories for me from my time spent in Germany. I didn't have any celery and used celery seed instead. I liked it warm and cold. Hubby tried it and said it was pretty good(he ate it cold and hates warm German potato salad)which is saying a lot for him! Thanks Lutzflcat!

Blueberry Oat Dream Bars
Made for Recipe Group. You need to make these, go now and do it! And I agree with some of the other reviewers, needs more berries. I probably added 1/2 cup extra. I had two 6oz pkgs so just used them both. I washed, dried, dusted with flour and then stuck them in the freezer a bit. Used all AP flour and no zest since I didn't have any lemons. Almond extract in the cheese sounds yummy to me too. Definitely need to frig to set them up unless you just want to spoon them out. But, that burst of blueberry in my mouth with the slightly tangy creamy cheese. And crunchy from the oat mixture. Mmmmmmmmmmm.

Chef Gerard's Award Winning Caesar Salad Dressing
Made for Recipe Group. This was just ok for me. It had a strong vinegar taste and I too added some sugar as it was a little tart. I blitzed it with the immersion blender. This is not at all what I thought a Caesar salad dressing is supposed to be as I thought they are usually white and have never heard of using tomatoes. But it was interesting. Thanks for the recipe.
