Classic Fish and Chips
Long ago I learned from a New Zealand woman to never ever use eggs and milk in a coating batter. Instead, I use cold water and a tablespoon vinegar. This makes fried batter much crispier than any other method, and has earned me compliments over the years.

Never Fail Biscuits
These biscuits are even better if you use a tablespoonful of vinegar to the milk to sour it before adding it to the other ingredients. Unbeatable!

Dad's Potato Soup
I don't have a pressure cooker, so I just cooked it all in a large saucepan. The amount of celery looked excessive to me, so I cut it to 2 stalks, very finely sliced, and it worked out very well. When it was cooked I took out a couple of cups of the soup and whizzed it in my blender (an old trick of mine), then returned it to the rest of the soup, and this thickened it nicely.
