Potato Salad for 40
I have been eating, and making, this type of potato salad since I met my husband 44 years ago. The only difference is we add some dill pickle juice to the mayonnaise mixture before adding it to the potatoes, eggs and green onions. My mother-in-law always used 5 pounds of red potatoes, one dozen eggs and close to two bunches of green onions (green parts only). The mayo-mustard, salt and pepper were never measured. I followed your recipe using 5 pounds of potato but added a lot more mustard than listed (I USED TWO TABLESPOONS, AS WE LIKE IT TO HAVE SOME ZIP). IT WAS FANTASTIC! I CAN NOW DUPLICATE THE TASTE EVERY TIME.

Country Apple Dumplings
Tried this recipe out on my Tuesday night guinea pigs and we all thought it was terrific. I looked at someone's picture (used a 13 x 9 plan and placed 6 on each side of the pan and put four vertically down the center). I made sure the tops were brown and were crispy on the top. Then we put two in each bowl, topped with some syrup and then added a scoop of vanilla ice cream. DELICIOUS!

Beautiful Salad
Brought to my friend's house. Everyone really liked this salad. Used Blue Cheese and Honey Dry Roasted Nuts. This is definitely a keeper. Liked the fact that each person could do their own plates and leave out an ingredient if they didn't like it (although the combination of using all the ingredients appeared to be the right combination of flavors).
