Mom's Potato Salad

In the realm of comforting and crowd-pleasing side dishes, few can rival the timeless appeal of a well made potato salad. This is my Moms potato salad recipe. It brings back such fond memories and I love it. Is it the only potato salad I make? No. Is it easy, and requires no planning? Yes. I almost always have the ingredients on hand to make this and it comes together quickly. This recipe has stood the teset of time and it is full of vintage nostalgia. Give it try this summer!

Fancy Party Chicken Salad

This Chicken Salad is so tasty and refreshing and is a pefect dish for entertaining too. Imagine this on a mini croisant or a slider roll! It would be just right for a baby shower or bridal shower or any occasion that requires "fancy" food. Just add some fruit or fruit salad to the side and you are golden! 

7 layered Green Salad

  Dont let this simple picture fool you! This 7 layer green salad is a throw back to more earlier times and deserves a retake. My family loves this dish and it kind works like magic! The warm bacon thaws the peas and the green onion will flavor the mayo for a tasty dressing. Its perfect. The smokey bacon and the cool lettuce, celery and peas are a match made in heaven. This is a great pot luck dish too! Try it today!

Snickers Salad

Ok so this "salad" isnt exactly a healthy salad. I mean, I am not even sure its a salad at all, but what I  do know it is amazingly delicious! Its is loaded with apples and grapes and also little morsels of snickers candy bar! Yummy! It has the essence of a caramel apple to me. SO GOOD! Make this one!  It is a crowd pleaser!    

Bacon Ranch Potato Salad

  Hello Friends! This is my Bacon Ranch Potato Salad. It is so good! I have two potato salad recipes I really enjoy and this is one of them. Its got bacon and onion and ranch! Some could say its crack potato salad after all. HAHA! If you added cheese it definitely would be. This salad goes perfect with BBQs and picnics that are surely coming up for you and me both. I most recently served it with Bacon Cheeseburgers we cooked on our grill. YUM! Do you have a favorite BBQ side dish? What is it? Leave me a comment and let me know! 

Chicken Oriental Salad

  This make a head Chicken Oriental Salad is one of my hubbys most favorite dishes I make! I love being able to make this in the morning and have it already to go for dinner that night. It is nice and cool and crisp! It works so well on those hot summer nights. Its a great one for parties and company too. I think you are going to love this one!


  Years and years ago, my sweet husband and I ate an appetizer at All Of Garden (get it? HAHA!!) It was so good we knew we needed to find a way to have it at home. Much less expensive and easier to get to. This is our best efforts on bruchetta. We now eat it more like a meal over sour dough toast. Sometimes when we are especially fancy we will rub the buttered toast with a little garlic clove but usually we just toast up sour dough and top with this delicious concoction. Right now is the best time of year to get ahold of the most delicious tomatoes straight from the garden but its pretty colors make a great christmas dish too. We've also been know to just eat this out of a bowl like a salad sometimes. Especially if carbs are a concern. Give this one a try! Have you ever tried to make a restaurant recipe at home? Comment and tell me all about it!
