It was Easter weekend and I wanted to bring home run dish to my cousins party, but I also wanted to do a little experimenting. I decided on My Grandma’s German Potato Salad which is not only delicious, but also a nostalgic recipe for my family. I like recipes that can remind me and others of family members, but also introduce them to the kids who never know them, sharing a memory they will now have in a different way. My middle son ate two plates. For my Easter basket my youngest son found a card that talks about being lucky which is so sweet because we have a little lucky saying with each other, the card warmed my heart to read.
My two experiments were a dip I also brought to the party, Deviled Egg dip. It was really good, now I just need to go back and remember how I made it in order to post it to the blog. It was essentially all the ingredients I use for deviled eggs put in the food processor and served with wheat crackers. It ended up being quite the hit. The second experiment I made to go along with dinner Saturday night. I sliced and layered green and yellow zucchini with Parmesan, mozzarella and feta cheese. When I got to the top I added Sun Dried Tomato’s Bella Sun Luci, Greek Oregano, Basil and Garlic. The dish was delicious, but my daughter had a great idea, she thinks we should grind up more Sun Dried Tomato’s and use it in the middle and add more. I think that is a great idea, so I am going to try it again, add a little shredded onion and garlic browned in butter and see how that turns out.
I love playing around with recipes, it is a lot of fun and the kids love taste testing for me.
