Authentic German Potato Salad

Authentic German Potato Salad

I really like German potato salad because there’s no mayonnaise. Not that I have anything against mayo but sometimes you crave something a little lighter. The other thing I like about this potato salad is you can serve it hot, chilled or at room temperature, making this a perfect option for picnics and parties.

Danish Ebelskivers with Jam

Danish Ebelskivers with Jam

Now I may not be the foremost expert on Danish food but I do know how good their ebelskivers are! Ebelskivers are traditionally served as a dessert because they are pretty sweet. Think pancake, but better. Better because they are little round popper-shaped pancakes filled with your favorite jam, chocolate or fruit and they can be handheld. I love dunking them in maple syrup!

Pandan Leaf Chicken

Pandan Leaf Chicken

The Pandan Leaf Chicken is a common Thai appetizer but one I had never heard of before. When my husband and I were in Thailand learning this recipe it put a huge smile on my face, it was the perfect dish to kick off our culinary adventure.

I know this one looks unique and requires a special trip to the Asian market, but I promise you, this dish will not disappoint. The flavors are out of this world. The aroma from the pandan leaf is infused into the chicken along with the marinade and it creates this perfect umami of flavors in your mouth!

Pumpkin Pie Dip

Pumpkin Pie Dip

I pulled this one out of the vault. I started making this dip maybe 10 years ago, I had kind of forgotten about it until a friend asked me for the recipe last week. It got me thinking, you know, that was a really popular dessert dip. So I carved a little pumpkin as a serving dish and whipped up a batch.
