Who’s tired of the same old pasta or potato salad? In my Beyonce voice, “put cho handz zup“. Even you get tired of making the standard salads, year after year, party after party, picnic after picnic and let’s not forget the potluck sign up sheet. Take a deep breath. Change is here
Blue Cheese and Bacon Cucumber Salad
Your Frugal Home Cook partner has done it again. Visualize yourself placing a beautiful presentation down on the table as you humbly wait for the wow, when they taste my Blue Cheese and Bacon Cucumber Salad.

Talk to the hand.

Remembering and honoring those who died protecting our country. Salute
Look Good, Cook Good and Entertain in Style
