Southern Potato Salad
If you need a foolproof recipe...this is it. Made exactly as indicated, it will yield an attractive salad. (dont forget the paprika!) The taste is better than store bought. It reminds me of salad served at any given "where the locals eat" home style Southern diner. Which if that is the taste you are going for (sorta bland, non-offensive, and dry) you will love this recipe. I do not know any excellent Southern cooks who use relish in their potato salad. Onion, green pepper, and a creamy- smooth pastel yellow dressing are all I have ever eaten outside of a restaurant. I am not being harsh- I don't know how to make the "good stuff" either, which is what led me to try this recipe to begin with.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup
Great recipe as is, or to add seasonings as you wish. The best part is that this recipes doubles easily and still remains wallet friendly. Kids love it as well, especially served with shredded cheeses and tortilla chips. I have used leftover taco or burrito beef filling and replaced all or part of the tomatoes with salsa. You can even go as far as adding leftover rice and pasta, remembering to adjust seasoning for any extra bulk. Always a go to during "slow cooker weather"!

Santa's Favorite Cake
I give this a five star for taste. I didn't prepare it, my early-teens daughter did over the holidays. I noticed it in my recipe box, and now 9 months after Christmas I just had a wonderful brilliant image of our holiday! Such a clean texture and bright taste, not to mention a very merry presentation! I can't wait to have this again. A great alternative to the fruit inspired and heavily chocolate laden cakes that usually grace our holiday desserts.
