Suggested Recipes

  • Creamy Crab Salad is one of the most delicious yet easiest semi-homemade salads you’ll ever have the pleasure of making. For years this creamy crab salad has been my secret go-to recipe for impromptu gatherings with friends and family members at reunions, work potlucks, and even church gatherings.
  • Southern-Style Egg Salad starts with a blend of creamy and slightly crunchy textures coming together with bright, fresh flavors. It’s not even particularly fancy, and there are no unique secret ingredients, just old-fashioned goodness piled on top of rich butter crackers or freshly baked slices of homemade bread.

    This looks fantastic. My family loves good potato salad, and I bet they would be thrilled to death if I made it loaded like this one. I love adding Greek yogurt. I never would have thought of that. Seriously yum!!
