Summer Succotash

Sometimes all you want is a cold salad, and what masquerades as a simple salad but sounds so much cooler?  A succotash, of course.  This recipe is perfect for summer, although I must warn you that if you plan on leaving some of this for leftovers, you should omit the olives, because the brine overcomes [...]

Penzy’s Potato Salad

This potato salad recipe was adapted from “Mom’s Kitchen Sink Potato Salad”  in the 2009 Penzy’s spices catalog.  The picture made my mouth water, so I had to make it, albeit minus the chicken stock, hard-boiled egg, and bacon.  I also messed with the amounts a bit, so bare with me, I’ll post the entire [...]
