  • My Dad made the most amazing potato salad and i have never been able to figure it out. He had it all in his head, never wrote it down so I just make my own.... He's not alive anymore so I'm sure he's looking down and laughing when I try to make his...

  • My grandmother makes the best chicken and dumplings and chicken pie!

    My mom makes the best stew beef (not beef stew) and country style steak with gravy!

    My aunt makes the best broccoli and cheese casserole. You'd think that with that few ingredients it could easily be duplicated but out of the many broccoli and cheese casseroles I've had, her's CANNOT be topped!

  • Sandypops, that is almost just like how I make mine but my pickles are sweet relish and I put some diced eggs in and sliced eggs on top with paprika for decoration. Also a little salt and pepper. I may try it with the sour cream and olives too. The big secret to making it good is not to over-cook OR under-cook the potatoes, right? That can ruin it right there. My Mom tends to under-cook the potatoes and regrets it big time afterward, lol!!
    Mine:
    potatoes
    onions
    sweet relish
    celery
    mayo
    mustard
    chopped eggs mixed in
    salt and pepper to taste
    sliced eggs and paprika on top to decorate
