Alabama Mashed Potato Salad

     About two weeks ago, when I posted the Bacon Blue Cheese Grilled Potato Salad, I promised that the next time Mrs. G made her Mashed Potato Salad, I would post it up here. This recipe was handed down from MeMaw (Mrs. G’s Grandmother) to her daughter and then to Mrs. G and will be… Continue reading Alabama Mashed Potato Salad

Taco Soup

     Soups. Not something we’ve tackled a lot of here on this blog. In fact, this is only the second one we’ve done. Not really sure why that is. Soups are generally easy, cheap and comforting.

Bacon Blue Cheese Grilled Potato Salad

     A few weeks back, I was talking to my good buddy Mr. Grayson on the phone. He mentioned that the day before he had made one of my rib recipes and he and the wife really enjoyed them (at least that’s how I choose to remember the conversation). He went on to say that… Continue reading Bacon Blue Cheese Grilled Potato Salad
