Graduation Potato Salad

This is the time of the year when we are enjoying reunions, backyard barbecues and graduations.  I am sharing a recipe with you that is very special to me.  When I graduated from High-school (that was a few years ago), my German neighbor Gerda made delicious Potato Salad for my graduation.  I never had a […]

What’s For Dinner?
