Poppin' Potato Salad

Tomorrow I have a barbecue to go to on the Upper East Side, rain or shine. It's a bit dreary and cold right now in NYC, but I still love a good barbecue. I have a great potato salad recipe to share with you. It's packed full of soul and a great addition to any BBQ. Holla!

Poppin' Potato Salad

• 2 pounds small red potatoes
• 3 eggs, hard-cooked and dice
• 1/2 cup diced red onion
• 4 green onions, thinly sliced
• 3/4 cup mayonnaise
• 1/4 cup sour cream
• 1 tablespoon vinegar
• 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
• 1 tablespoon fresh dill, or about 2 teaspoon dried dill
• 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
• 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Cut the potatoes into small chunks and place in a medium saucepan. Cover with water and boil for about 10 to 12 minutes, until just tender. Pour off water, set the pan in a sink or larger pan of cold water to cool the potatoes quickly.
In a large bowl, combine the potatoes with eggs, red onion, and green onions. In another bowl, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, vinegar, and Dijon mustard. Add to the potatoes and stir gently to combine. Fold in the dill and add salt and pepper to taste. Serves 6.

Spring Food Lovin'

I went to a birthday barbecue in the BK (aka Brooklyn) over the weekend. Here I am sitting in the shade, doing my best to be glamorous.

I love the spring/summer time in NYC, it is time for outdoor eating and entertaining. Coming soon I will share some recipes (yes, think potato salad and beyond..) and fresh tips for entertaining. Yum!

This coming Wednesday I will be all ghetto, as in The Ghetto Gourmet( The Ghet is a wandering supperclub with fabulous food and community. The event is sold out, but dinners pop up all the time so check the site for info. Maybe one day we will meet while kickin' it ghetto style!?!?!

Kickin' it Kosher

A little bit of shameless promotion..I won the bronze medal for People's Choice on JBlog Central and Martha Stewart's people got in contact with me about the blog, because they enjoy reading it. If only I could have lunch with Martha. I so can imagine Martha and I kickin' back with a cocktail, talking red velvet cake and fried chicken.

I say all this to say thanks to the peeps who read. And also mainly as a affirmation of what is happening in the kosher food market!

Yesterday someone in a group I was with made a comment that most people don't care about kosher food. I didn't argue with her, because the facts and numbers speak for themselves. The kosher food business is a 14.6 billion dollar business.

Jewish peeps are not the only ones who eat kosher foods anymore. I am still looking for the most current numbers, but one survey says that the number of non Jewish consumers eating kosher food is actually more than double to the number of Jewish consumers. Not to mention ethnic foods are attractive to more and more people. The business is booming and companies are running to be all about the K/OU! Holla!
