Our Favorite Macaroni Salad + $50 Paypal Cash Giveaway

Growing up I remember spending a lot of time at my Grandmother's house, especially in the summer when school was out and my mom and dad were working. I remember all the delicious summer salads she would make like her fruit salads, potato salad, and her amazing macaroni salad. 


My grandmother has been in a nursing home for almost 10 years now, and she has Alzheimer's pretty badly. While I had always hoped that my grandmother's legacy of good cooking would live on for generations, the truth is that she never used recipes and just did everything from memory. Now that she's been sick for so long, all of her amazing recipes are lost, and so as a family, we kind of have to do what we can to come up with her recipes on our own.

I tried making her macaroni salad when Derek and I were first married and it was kind of just a nasty bowl of mush. Bless Derek for all the experimental cooking I put him through that first year of marriage. A few weeks ago when I was at the store getting some things for dinner, I grabbed a box of Betty Crocker's Suddenly Salad Creamy Macaroni Salad, figuring there was no point in trying to recreate my grandmother's recipe, and amazingly, the salad was delicious! It's become a new summer staple in our house. One Sunday Derek and I were sitting at the table eating some hot dogs, chips, and Betty Crocker's Suddenly Salad from Publix and both agreed, "This is summer".

Right now Publix has a lot of coupon offers for Betty Crocker Suddenly Salads, and more. You can save $.75 on your next three boxes when you print their coupon here.

Because I want you to have a fabulous summer and experience the goodness of Betty Crocker's Suddenly Salad collection, I'm self hosting a $50 paypal cash giveaway! Giveaway runs from now until 7/12/16 @ 11:59pm EST. Enter using the rafflecopter below. 


In partnership with Betty Crocker and Publix.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear that your grandma has Alzheimer's. Have you and your family been able to recreate any of her meals? My grandma made really good biscuits without a recipe and only one person in the family knows how to make them now. At least you found some really yummy macaroni salad to stand in for your grandma's! This post makes me want hot dogs and macaroni!
