Called that not because Julie makes it, but because hubby Mike makes it and it's Julie's favorite! :)

Recipe #27133

My family would crowd into the kitchen to get their first forkfull of Mom's potato salad. It's that good! This potato salad is not at all sweet - something which was important for our family. Let it sit in the fridge as long as you can before serving... it's even better the next day!

Recipe #27065

This is my mother in law Carol's recipe. Great for summer picnics and the holidays! Prep time does not include freezing.

Recipe #107112

My friend Gene here in the Puget Sound (who also happens to be my ex) made a wonderfully delicious King salmon recently, and I pried this rub recipe out of him. ;) All the amounts are approximate... he adds necessary amounts by aroma.

Recipe #123137

For those of us - and I know you're out there! - who really do like liverwurst. I love the stuff! This recipe came from my grandparents.

Recipe #46294

Some people think tartar sauce is no big deal. But I've tasted some pretty darn bad versions (and I have yet to try a store-bought version that tastes good), so here's my favorite: my mom's recipe. The most important thing about tartar sauce, in my opinion, is that it be not at all sweet, but savory and rich instead (if you like sweet tartar sauce, this isn't the recipe for you).

Recipe #27336

Way back when, in the depths of college days history when overindulgent weekend drinking was just a 20-something No Big Deal, my then-husband husband Gene and I watched a movie called "Moon Over Parador" and thought it was one of the funniest things we'd ever seen. Of course, I believe we'd been imbibing quite a bit o' beer so our judgment might've been a little off. (I still think the movie is pretty funny, though.) In the movie, the dictator of a tiny little country called Parador indulges in a drink called a "puna," which is never really described. "Too many damn punas," and the dictator kicks the bucket, and Richard Dreyfus' character, an actor who does too good an impression of the departed, has to take his place while the corrupt political cronies figure out what to do next. Anyhow, we thought it'd be fun to create the puna. What we came up with was pretty darn tasty, and was a hit on those binge weekends of old. I don't remember the exact recipe, and we made it in volume, but here's an approximate single serving. Delicious! :)

Recipe #27227

This is the astoundingly good dressing that we use on our reuben sandwiches and in shrimp cocktail. Others have told me that they make it just to use as a dip, and - coming from my description in our Reuben Sandwiches Our Way (recipe # 107927): "you can call it Thousand Island or French, whathaveyou" - keep it on their table and call it What-Have-You Sauce. Thank you for the tribute! :)

Recipe #114916

I remember our family making batches of this in the years before wine coolers were made commercially available. It's a nice, refreshing drink for summer days!

Recipe #28502

So easy it's almost ridiculous! :) These chocolate-covered pomegranate seeds are a great addition to the holiday season, and the kids will like helping to make them.

Recipe #45549

More about process than ingredients, Dad very carefully taught me how to make his grilled cheese sandwiches this way so that they came out perfect every time. :)

Recipe #28427

This is the plain old fashioned macaroni salad my grandma used to make, which is still my sister Cathy's favorite.

Recipe #30849

This is one of those weird but wonderful comfort foods from my childhood. You wouldn't believe how delicious it is!! Although sometimes I make it without the bacon, I really do prefer it with...

Recipe #105236

A traditional recipe, from my Family Recipe Box. I remember this one from my childhood.

Recipe #27952

This is what we have at Christmastime with our steamed puddings. :)

Recipe #48895

During the holidays when I'm visiting with my family, one of the things my mom and sisters and I do is to swap recipes. Mom has a notebook stuffed full of recipes she's saved since she was first married, and this is her favorite dressing from that collection, one she makes on a regular basis. Delicious!

Recipe #108985

For me, this is the ultimate in comfort foods from my childhood. :) I fix this often, usually for lunch, accompanied with a bowl of soup. (LJ entry Monday, January 28th, 2002.)

Recipe #27443

An unusual topping for vanilla ice cream. I like this one slightly spicy.

Recipe #31241

This recipe is when I was a child growing up learning to cook. It's very good. And very easy for a child to make with a little help.
