Golden Dijon Potato Salad

I’ve always tended to gravitate towards the potato salad when it comes to a picnic or buffet table. There is something about a perfectly cooked and soft potato mixed with a creamy sauce that gets me every time. I mean EVERY time!

This Creamy Golden Dijon Potato Salad is everything I want in a chilled potato salad, and I trust it will be everything you’re looking for as well.

How to Make American Flag Heart Decorated Sugar Cookies

There was a time, not all that long ago, when I used to bake a decorate sugar cookies almost every day. That was about 10 years ago when I ran a small home based cookie business called Kudos Kookies. Notice anything familiar about the name? 😉

Now I only bake and decorate sugar cookies when I’m really in the mood, and when there is a special occasion. For me, Memorial Day and the 4th of July are just the types of special occasions which call for patriotic cookies. Especially when they’re these fun American Flag Heart Decorated Sugar Cookies.

Surprise Strawberry Pie Cake with Cute Lattice Pie Crust Topping

I’m going to be perfectly honest with you here (as I always am). This recipe idea for Strawberry Orange Pie Cake is not my own. I saw it in one of my back issues of Food Network Magazine and thought it looked like something I wanted to try. I did, however, adapt the recipe ingredients and also put my own touch on the lattice pie crust topping with those cute little strawberry accents to up the cuteness factor.
