I brought some warm German Potato Salad last week to a Pot Luck and it was a BIG hit! However, I'm out of ideas for the same group next week. Many of the people of our group are vegetarians, but not all. What was the biggest hit that you've ever brought to or have had at a pot luck?
sort by best latest
Ha Ha Ha !!! I know that feeling and it WOULD make the pot luck more fun! Just smelling the rum balls makes you think you're drunk! And actually, I think you CAN get drunk on those right? You don't bake the rum balls.
It totally does make things fun, Billie. However, the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of rum, so you can't really get drunk . It's just fun to make-believe. It helps to use dark rum. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/cocoa-rum-balls/ and a bit of orange peel.
Savvy, I think I can get "real" drunk on a teaspoon of rum! (I don't get out much !)
Lol. We might have to change that. Ha,ha,ha!
Rofl! I love rum balls. But my dad used to have a saying about people who got drunk, or thought they were: "Some people think they're drunk if you slap them on the rear with a bar towel!" ;-)
DML, Love that quotation of your dad's. On my end, there is a note with your comment that says, "waiting moderation". I never saw THAT before!
I see it on my end every time I comment on the Q&A board; I did not know it was visible to others. Weird.
SO glad you answered this, Dappledesigns. I NEED your hubs re: interactive pdf's etc. etc. I can't find this recipe among your hubs. 1. Do you have a hub on this? 2. Do I have your permission to link to it if I make a hub of this ques?
I'm so happy to read this! I'm glad they will come in handy :) I don't have a hub on it, but it looks like I'm making them again so I can grab pics to write one! There a few recipes online, but I changed it up so it tasted more 'eggy' without eggs.
Let me know when you have that hub. I'm emailing all the people who participated here and I'd like to list their ideas and then link to their hubs that have the recipes. It will take me awhile to get to it though :)
No fuss, no muss, no bother! I like it. And after all, that IS a secret receipe. How could I top that ?
I don't know what that is Arachnea! Do you have a hub about this?
Ah, nothing like German potato salad. Once someone asked a chef what the best Thanksgiving dressing was. He said, "The kind your mother used to make." However, JUST last week I found someone who made German potato salad better than my moms.(shhh !)
