Peach Kuchen
I cannot believe this received ANY good ratings! I was searching for my German mom's recipe and this seemed the closest so I was very eager to undertake it this morning & enjoy it later this evening after dinner. What a WASTE of not only ingredients, but my TIME! The batter was TOO STICKY to spread with my fingers(???) so I used a spatula; then there wasn't nearly enough batter! I know for a fact I followed this to a "T", so it wasn't an error. My mom baked the cake first in a type of fluted tart pan with a raised bottom; when she turned it out, she spread drained canned peaches pinwheel style on the top while still a bit warm. The juices soak right in! Then she would spread some type of sweet glaze over the top... while the cake portion was NOT "sweet" (which I prefer), the yummy jell-like topping was, and it was the most delicious cake I ever had. I wish my mom were still around so I could ask her, but in the meantime, I'm still trying to find her recipe! Think I might try this batter again, but double it... then add peaches on top afterward as I described. This also took 45 minutes to cook at 350, and it still isn't evenly cooked. Sad about losing this morning too.

Authentic German Potato Salad
My mom was from Munich... she made this YUMMY potato salad at least once a week!! This is as close as I came to finding her recipe... thanks so much for posting this (I would have if I didn't find yours)!! A noteworthy mention... this is a FABULOUS recipe to bring to any outdoor cookout / party as there is NO MAYO to spoil!!

Vinegar Cookies
Too bad I can't give this a 10 star rating!! In the last week, I've made 10-12 DOUBLE batches because they couldn't be simpler to make!! EVERYONE I know will be getting a tin FILLED with them, and I had a blast making each batch a bit differently experimenting with nuts & a variety of spices... and and !! EVERY time I had a WINNER and I don't think you could goof these up no matter what. I happen to LOVE pecans... so I used them, but did use the walnuits for hubby... He thinks I'm a master baker now too... but it's MY SECRET! I could go on & on, but! THANKS for this KEEPER and HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Oh, and I like 'em BIG so I just increased the size. :)P``
