Michaela's Cookbook!

Both my boys - the 4 year-old AND the husband - are picky eaters. The recipes in this cookbook are things one or both of them will eat! I have hope that the baby will be less picky!

Cookbook creator says: I substituted cream of mushroom for cream of celery and added a can of pinto beans. If I used a different salsa, there may have been a little more flavor.

I always thought this potato salad was too simple...until a family cookout when my family couldn't stop raving about it! It's very simple and easy! I use red potatoes because they're small, so I don't have to peel them or spend too much time cutting them!

This is my husband's recipe and is loaded with flavor! Warning: If you're a wimp like me, this has a definite KICK! It's also a very economical meal. We used dried beans and ground chuck and it was still healthy!

It's great with shredded cheese and sour cream on top!
