Both recipes are easy and SUPER DELICIOUS!!!

Mom's Potato Salad

10 Medium Potatoes

4 Stalk Celery
1/2 Bunch Green Onion
1 lb. Bacon
3 Cups Mayonnaise
1/2 C. Miracle Whip
4 T. Mustard

Garlic Powder (to taste)
Salt & Pepper (to taste)

Boil potatoes (with their skin on) and eggs together in the same pot until potatoes are fork tender.  Then peel potatoes and eggs. chop into medium size chunks.  Fry bacon until crisp.  Crumble into bowl over the chopped potatoes and eggs.  Dice celery and bunch of green onion. add to the bowl with the other ingredients.    In another bowl mix mayo, salad dressing, mustard, seasoning's, sugar and milk (until thinned some but not too runny.)  Add to the sauce to the potato mixture.  Chill and serve when ready!

(This is Mom's recipe..I change it up just a little I only use mayonnaise, no sugar and no milk)

I have to tell you a little story about my cooking adventure!  Well first off, the bacon burned, not just a little..like full on smoke detectors in the house went off and that was even with the oven door closed!  Ya, pretty bad.  
So...to fix that, hubby got some bacon bits from the store to rescue me,  instead of mixing them in we sprinkled them on top.  Ya, it was OK, but freshly cooked bacon throughout it ...
 would have been so much better.
Hopefully next time, I'll be a little more attentive to my cooking bacon!

Next recipe and yes, there is a story for this one too!

  

Simple Deviled Eggs

2 18 Pack Eggs
2 1/2 C. Mayonnaise
1- 1/2 tsp. Mustard
Seasoning Salt (to taste)
Garlic Powder (to taste)
Paprika (for garnish)

Boil Eggs.  Cut them in half (horizontally) remove the cooked yolk and put in a mixing bowl.  Mash them up with a fork.  Add Mayonnaise, mustard and seasonings and mix! I use a hand mixer  it makes a silky smooth texture. Cut the corner of  a baggie off, fill with the yolk mixture and pipe it into  the egg shells.  Sprinkle with paprika. 
Variation:  You can add sliced Green Olives to the top, Black Olives or Crumbled Bacon


Now for the egg story.... I pretty much cook by how much I think I need of something..so I guess you could say I cook "by taste" 
Well...cooking by look and taste this time
I uhhh.....
added WAY too much seasoning salt . Oh, they were plain out Nasty!  I added a little sugar to cut out the salty-ness, but then I had to add some garlic powder to fix the sugary-ness.  
Yes, everyone still enjoyed them and wouldn't have even known about them If I didn't share the stories!  phew......

After those two mess ups  I was so done...No oreos for the family this Easter!
You gotta try these recipes they are so yummy!

Have a great day!

  6. That potato salad recipe has a few differences from mine. I am definitely going to try yours out. The combo of Miracle Whip and mayo sound interesting. Thanks for the idea just in time for summer.
