Easy Scalloped potatoes
About this Cook
I am an older cook from Puerto Rico and my best made meals are ethnic cuisine. People run for dinner when I invite them to a "Puerto Rican meal". Most people love my Italian dishes and most of the things I cook using all recipes!!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking roast pork and exotic breads from my bread machine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Traditionally we cooked rice and beans for most weekday meals and on Sunday we went out to eat.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering most of my mother's recipes mostly from the book-Puerto Rican Cookery by Valdejuli.
My cooking tragedies
making mouse, or souffle. There are some dishes I just cannot make to save my live even though I love them so!

Amish Macaroni Salad
I made this for the first time today. I added some pickle juice because I was missing vinegar. It still tasted great. I also added yellow, orange, and green pepper to it just for different flavors and textures. I also used a little less sugar, 1 and 1/2 cups. It was devoured in no time. What a great salad! I can almost see how to change flavors a bit by using different veggies too. I did use salad dressing type mayonaise and loved the flavor. Great salad.
