Red Skinned Potato Salad
One reviewer seemed irate that lots of folks were ranking this recipe 5 stars all while listing their several modifications to the recipe; to that reviewer, I say "pfffft!" If you know your flavor profiles & know what you like, GO FOR IT! I took many of the suggestions & incorporated them into what turned out to be the MOST delicious salad I have tasted. I cut 3lbs potatoes into cubes and boiled for 12 minutes. Added 1/2 cup white onion, 1 cup green onion. 3 celery stalks. 6 eggs. 1lb bacon, pan fried to VERY crispy. Dressing was 3/4 cup mayo, 3/4 sour cream with a tablespoon of creamy horse radish. Mixed together with fresh chopped dill, salt & fresh ground pepper. I will say, mix well together first & then add the salt as I did not account for the saltiness of the fried bacon. BIG FLAVOR IMMEDIATELY & BIG HIT AT THE PARTY for those who like the bolder flavor profiles. I'm still ranking this recipe a 5 star since it gave me the base for a 6 star potato salad!

Green Bean and Bacon Saute
Just made it tonight. I added a chopped shallot (I had one on hand) and used fresh green beans instead. Yum!!

Savory Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
Delicious! I followed other member suggestions and used Gruyere/Cheddar mix and dipped the caps in butter prior to stuffing them. For the wine, I used Pinot Grigio. As with many of my recipes, I added a couple of tablespoons of Montreal steak seasoning for the extra umph. Took them to a friend's dinner party & they were a HIT!!!
