The Grover Gang hopes you had a happy Independence Day if you celebrate such. For dinner here at the Grover Hotel, I made Divine Dijon Drumsticks and Dijon Potato Salad. 

This is a simple but tasty dinner that's great any time of the year.

I adapted the Dijon Drumsticks from this recipe.


The recipe above calls for marinating the drumsticks in yogurt, dijon mustard, and garlic overnight. I didn't have any yogurt, so I was going to use sour cream, but I forgot to marinate them. So I used the following recipe instead.

8 chicken drumsticks

In one bowl mix together:
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

In a second bowl mix together:
1/2 cup baking mix (you can use plain flour)
Kinder's The Blend seasoning (you can use any seasoning you like. Kinder's contains salt, pepper, and dehydrated garlic)

Roll the drumsticks in the mayonnaise-mustard mix. Then roll in the seasoned baking mix.

Bake in a 425 degree (Fahrenheit) oven for 45 minutes.

While the drumsticks are cooking, cut 5-6 small to medium-size potatoes into cubes and boil until soft, about 20 minutes. Drain and pour into a large bowl. To the potatoes add 1/3 cup of mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard, Kinder's The Blend, and dried dill to taste. Stir in any other vegetables you like. I used carrot, celery, and onion. You could also chop in a couple of hard-boiled eggs.

I adapted my potato salad recipe from the following cauliflower salad recipe. I didn't have any cauliflower, but potato salad is always a winner.


This is a simple meal that doesn't require a lot of time in the kitchen and can easily be doubled.

I buy Kinder's seasoning at Costco and I use it in just about everything. It is very versatile. But if you don't have a Costco membership, you can purchase two 10-ounce bottles for $20.19 through the following link. https://amzn.to/31NIgPY

I get my dill and many of my other spices from Watkins. I became a Watkins consultant just to get discounts on my products. Through July, the normal $29.95 annual consultant fee has been reduced to $19.95. I save around $225 annually over the retail cost by being a consultant. You can find out more on my Watkins page, or just order products.


You can order two 96-ounce boxes of Bisquick for $20.04 through the following link. https://amzn.to/2NU81WL

I never buy Bisquick anymore. I found a recipe from Budget101.com, and the cost breaks down to a little over a dollar to make this instead. It works just the same as Bisquick.


I store my baking mix in a cereal storage container. You can get a great set of four storage containers with labels through this link. https://amzn.to/3f8aE3i

In fact, I'm going to take advantage of that deal too. 

I mix my baking mix in a large, flexible plastic bowl, which makes it easy to pour it into the storage container. You can get the very same bowl that I use from Amazon for $7.94 https://amzn.to/2Z3erJA

I use a pastry cutter to blend the shortening into the baking mix. You can get a nice pastry cutter and dough scraper set for $9.99 through the following link. https://amzn.to/3gtXkpW

I hope that you enjoy the recipes and the potential savings!
