Greek Pasta Salad I
As it is...this recipe is just so-so. A little bland. I added pepperoncinis...banana peppers...pimento...GREEN OLIVES...and prosciuotto to zing it up. Also...1/4 cup of Italian dressing. And we leave out the sugar.

The Best Potato Salad
It's a good recipe for sure. Anything that adds a little something different to mundane old potato salad is welcome. I added pepper encrusted bacon to this recipe and it gave it one extra layer of flavor. I also use celery hearts instead of celery seed and both black and green olives. Very good.

Turkey Brine
For extra flavor add 1 half gallon apple juice and 1 half gallon cranberry juice,(or 1 gallon Ocean Spray CranApple juice) around 10 whole cloves, black pepper (to taste, but be careful), and brown sugar (2 cups packed) Also, by adding additional liquids (cranberry and apple juice) it is important to add an addotional cup of salt (2 total) Replace the ice water with 1 gallon water straight from the faucet. Boil all ingredients until the salt and sugar are completely dissolved and the cloves are releasing their oils. Remove from heat and let completely cool before brining the turkey. Also, with a strainer, remove the whole cloves before brining or you may find yourself biting into a clove which is not pleasant.
