    I picked this recipe because I had never made a dressing like this for potato salad. I have to say that I liked this quite well. No fingerling potatoes just now, so I halved medium russets the long way, then cut then into slices and cooked them that way - this avoids having to handle hot potatoes. The dressing cooks in a flash, but there is more of it than this quantity of potatoes requires - I did not use even half. However, I think you should make it up in the quantities shown, as a smaller amount would not be easy to measure out. I used a bit over a lb of potatoes, and this would be about 3 servings, not the 4 to 6 indicated. 6 servings from 1 lb of potatoes sounds very optimistic to me and will leave some disappointed. I used green onions, which of course worked very well with the potatoes.


<p>My favorite thing to do is to spend time with family and friends,&nbsp;especially my two grandsons. Cooking, collecting recipe books and tried and true recipes from family and friends, and all the wonderful cooks here at, is what I enjoy too.</p> <p>My favorite sayings are: &nbsp;Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, and Today is a gift; that is why it is called the 'present'. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp; and&nbsp;&nbsp;Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live for today. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp;</p> <p>My favorite poem is: <br /><span>Common Things <br /></span>The things I prize of greatest worth, <br />Are just the common things of earth; <br />the rain, the sun, the grass, the trees; <br />The flowers, the birds, the glorious breeze; <br />Clouds that pass, and stars that shine, <br />Mountains, valleys, all are mine; <br />Rivers broad, and open sea <br />Are riches none can take from me. <br />Our God is here on every hand, <br />Upon the sea, upon the land! <br />And day by day my thanks I give <br />That with these common things I live. <br />....Praying Hands</p> <p>My pet peeve is people who spit gum on the sidewalk even if there is a trash bin a few feet away!!
