Chef John's Salami Bread
What started out as a frustrating attempt to test some pizza dough, turned into what we're calling salami bread. It would make a great Italian submarine sandwich, or just load it up with lots of Italian cheeses and fresh and pickled vegetables.
Old Fashioned Potato Salad
This is potato salad the old-fashioned way, with eggs, celery and relish. It's really good to serve with chili.
Chunky Cheesecake Brownies
Wow! Melt-in-your-mouth brownies that are easy and elegant. Chocolate brownies marbled with cheesecake make fabulous squares! This is by far my most requested recipe.
Classic Macaroni Salad
This is a salad that everyone seems to love. I always get lots of compliments on this recipe and it is just a pleasing taste that seems to suit everyone.
Watermelon and Strawberry Lemonade
This recipe makes for fresh fruit that you can drink! It's best served cold over ice.
Triple Dipped Fried Chicken
This is the crispiest, spiciest, homemade fried chicken I have ever tasted! It is equally good served hot or cold and has been a picnic favorite in my family for years.
Picnic Baked Bean Casserole
Smoked bacon adds zest to this bean bake recipe I got from my mother. I must confess that lima beans have never been among my favorite foods, but I actually like them in this casserole, and their color brightens up the mixture.
Authentic German Potato Salad
This is my mother's recipe. Everyone, German or not, loves it. It is easy to double the recipe as well. I often bring it to potlucks, and we also have it at home on special occasions. There are usually no leftovers, but if there are, they don't last long!
Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches
This is a wonderful-tasting egg salad sandwich that you will definitely devour. It's really good on rye.
