Hot German Potato Salad II
Very much like the recipe I use. I cheat by dicing raw red (unpeeled) potatoes into my bacon-onion-vinegar-sugar sauce. After mixing potatoes with sauce, I bake at 325 degrees for 2 hours. What I like to do is cook up b,o,v,s sauce freeze it and have it on hand so all I have to do is thaw the sauce and add potatoes when I am short on time. It makes a nice traditional dish to take to funerals. We are a Germans from Russia settlement and many my generation and younger do not take the time to make traditional dishes.

Fabulously Sweet Pear Cake
My pears were quite ripe therefore I just diced them and did not allow sugar to set to long before mixing with the dry ingredients. My four pears diced equaled 3 cups. Next time, I will up that to 4 cups diced. I used powered sugar instead of flour to dust my 9x13 and baked it for only 40 minutes. I topped it with another lite dusting of powered sugar, no other topping necessary! Definitely a keeper. Thank you!

Maryann's Upside Down Rhubarb Cake
This has been a favorite for years. I also up my rhubarb to 4 cups, sugar only 1 cup, and whipping cream 1 1/2 cup (table cream and 1/2 & 1/2 will not set up for a nice custard) Always a hit!!
