Homemade Potato Salad

This potato salad is an old tradition in my family. This is the way my mother made it with one exception. She used regular mayonnaise instead of light. 5 pounds of Idaho Potato’s
1 cup of chopped flat leaf parsley
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoons of ground black pepper
24 oz. Kraft light mayonnaise.
2 cups of chopped celery
2 cups of chopped onions
6 hard boiled eggs, chopped

Peel and chop potatoes into bite size chunks.
Boil potato until tender. Once they are cooked, strain them and let cool.
Add the remaining ingredients into a bowl and mix. Once the potatoes are cooled add the mixture. Mix the mixture in very well so the potatoes become creamy.

This is a large batch of potato salad. It can be cut in half successfully.

Shredded BBQ Pork sandwiche

My husband the Chief, loves Shredded Pork, beef and Chicken sandwiches; I prepared this recipe with a Pork tenderloin. It can also be made the same way substituting chicken or beef.


3 pounds of pork tenderloin
2 Vidalia onion
1 bottle of KC Masterpiece Honey BBQ sauce
Two tables of olive oil
8 Plain buns or 8 onion rolls


Start by chopping 1 Vidalia onions into a medium size. Heat oil in a large pot. Add the chopped onions to the oil and sauté to a golden brown. Take the second onion and cut into slices. In a separate pan, sauté onions to a golden brown and set aside.

Now take your pork tenderloin and cut into 1 inch chunks and add them to the golden brown onions. Braise the Pork Tenderloin until it is slightly praises. Add ½ of the Bottle of KC Masterpiece Honey BBQ sauce and 1 cup of water. Let the liquid reduce down until the pork tenderloin starts to braise. Repeat the braising process three times. After braising the pork tenderloin you will see it start to shred. Add the desired amount of KC Masterpiece Honey BBQ sauce to the shredded pork.

Toast the buns and layer pork onions and extra KC Masterpiece Honey BBQ Sauce.

This will make 8 sandwiches.
