Marie, I was SHOCKED to see that you submitted this recipe. I'm forever looking for the "perfect" potato salad. I'm not good at preparing it, and the next day, the bottom of the Tupperware bowl is filled with water. I don't know WHAT I'm doing wrong but it happens with every recipe I've tried. Anyroad, I was intrigued by your photo and clicked on it for the recipe -- it looks divine. When I saw that it was submitted by the English Kitchen, I just about fainted! It just so happens, I was JUST at your site and I noticed that "this site" is one of your favorites and I clicked on the link you provided. OMG, talk about deja vu! The FIRST recipe that pulled me in was one of yours. Oh, Marie, you are quite becoming the world's favorite cook! Thank you for THIS recipe. I just jotted down your delightful "Ginger Man Chocolate Cake" recipe, that I'm using for my traditional birthday cake for Baby Jesus. I always bake a cake for him on Christmas Day, and fell in love with your finished product! You may THINK you're not a great "piper," but I beg to differ. The cake was to sigh for.
