Copy-Cat Recipe

You may recall that I've mentioned my love for Red, Hot & Blue's Potato Salad a time or twenty!  My friend Jennifer located a copy-cat recipe online last weekend and e-mailed it to me.  Of course I had to make it immediately!

It has a shockingly small amount of ingredients to be so good!  I'll post the recipe I copied below, but I'll just let you know that I didn't really measure anything when making mine...

First, I steamed some Red Potatoes
While those were steaming, I boiled some eggs.  Then I chopped up those eggs and some green onions.
Once the potatoes were ready, I chopped them up into chunks.  Then I mixed in the mayonnaise, stirred in the onions, eggs and celery seed.
Thankfully, Red, Hot & Blue Potato Salad is served room temperature, so I didn't have to wait for it to chill! 

I served it up with some Fried Chicken (cold by the way...love cold fried chicken!) and dug in!  Yum-O!

Here's the Recipe I copied with my notes to the side:

2- 2 1/2 lbs. boiled red-skinned potatoes, skin on (this is where I jumped the tracks...First, I forgot to weigh the potatoes, so I hadn't a clue how many I was cooking up, but I used 7 good sized red potatoes, and I steamed them instead.  I think steaming made them less mushy than boiling would have)

6 eggs- (No way do you need 6 eggs unless you'd rather have egg salad with potatoes instead of potato salad with eggs.  I used 3 eggs~whites of all three, only the yolk of two)

1 bunch of diced green onions- only the green parts (I believe that RH&B uses some of the actual onion too, so I used two actual onions and then an additional amount of green tops)

generous 1/2 cup real mayonnaise (I used low-fat mayonnaise 'cause that was all I had.  Real Mayonnaise would probably be better.  I didn't measure at all, I just plopped it on until it looked right, but it was probably a "generous 1/2 cup", whatever in the heck that means)

3/4 tsp. celery seed (I did measure this, because you really don't want too much celery seed)

In my opinion, it also needs some salt and pepper, but I just added salt and pepper to taste on my individual serving.  As I mentioned, serve at room temperature and Enjoy!

Oh my gosh - that fried chicken and potato salad combo looks so good! I always like a little bit of spices and cilantro in mine too - yum!

I'll be sure to do an apartment tour someday when I have time to clean up! :)

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not quick...you probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 




First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...






These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
