Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was Maya Angelou's family recipe handed down from her grandmother. She made it on the "Today Show" when she was trying to promote her new cookbook. Of course, being a "potato salad connoisseur," I copied down the recipe and made it that day. It was everything a great potato salad should be; creamy and loaded with eggs. If you love potato salad, you will definitely enjoy this recipe!
