Don't Burn Dinner

Oma’s Potato Salad


I was gifted a box of recipes from every attendee of my bridal shower last weekend. With this incredible gift, I am armed with a stack of incredible dishes and the support of the amazing women who are familiar with cooking them! 

I started with a recipe fit for a perfect Memorial Day picnic. Gifted from my bridesmaid Milly, a potato salad recipe that has been passed down for generations… “Oma’s Potato Salad”. Will I do this precious family heirloom proud, or will I embarrass myself yet again? You will have to watch to find out…
