(Pistils of saffron are the same thing as threads, so you can compare grams to threads as in the following: “equivalents; 1 gram of threads = approx 12 threads = 2 teaspoons of threads = 1 teaspoon crumbled = 1/2 teaspoon powdered”. You can find this information in the article here:)
Well, the Unofficial Start to summer has come and gone. That four-day weekend seemed to pass by in a flash. From now until Labor Day our little town will be bustling with tourists. We tend to avoid the local beach and downtown area from now until after Labor Day. They get so busy and there are few deals as most of these places make the bulk of their income in these three months. So, we will not be going out too much this summer to eat.
We love our pizza though. I am still working on my technique to make better pizza but each time I feel I am getting a bit closer to the best way to make it for us. This is the one dish that restaurants still make better than I do! I took a piece of steak out of the freezer the other day and realized…

My children do not like mayonnaise potato salad. Once in a while I can get them to eat a bite or two if I add lots of eggs and mustard to it. When I saw this recipe I knew my children would like it.

Time for summer salads! I love potato salads but am always looking for new ways to make them. This potato salad is potatoes mixed with Tzatziki which is a favorite in our house. I tend to add MUCH more dill and garlic than is called for in this recipe but I went light on the seasonings for the recipe because we love it with lots of garlic and dill but when I make it for guests I tend to err on the side of caution.
This is one of my kids favorite potato salads. They are not big on mayonnaise based salads and this has so much flavor that they choose this salad first when picking a picnic side dish.
This goes great with all your favorite grilled meats!
