Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

Dijon red potato salad

don't think about running to the deli when you need a small side dish for your backyard barbecue.  try this Dijon potato salad.  it is quick and easy and comes together in minutes.

early in the day, cook about six small red potatoes.  allow them to chill in the refrigerator until ready to put together the salad.  dice the potatoes.  next, mix 2 tablespoons of good quality mustard, with 1/4 cup low calorie coleslaw dressing and 2 tablespoons of dill pickle relish or chopped pickles.  season the salad to taste with salt and freshly cracked pepper.

other options would be to add chopped watercress or parsley, bread and butter pickles instead of dill, or a different type of mustard.

any variation will be tasty and quick !
