Secret Cravings' Secret Recipes: Author V.L. Locey

Welcome to another great day for a recipe! Today, we have V.L. Locey visiting us and she's brought a great summertime dish to share with all of us. Please give her a warm welcome :)

Hi everyone! Thanks to Madison for having me on.

For many of us here in the States, potato salad is a summertime staple. I can`t imagine a cookout without it! Having a Fin/Swede goalie as a leading man in my latest hockey romance, I spent some time digging around for recipes to use in the book. When I stumbled across this recipe for Finnish potato salad, I just had to pass it along! While it might not be the same as what we make here in Pennsylvania, I bet it would be a big hit at any meal!

Finnish Potato Salad
8 boiled potatoes
1 apple
1-2 pickled cucumbers
1 red onion
2 tbsp capers
200 g sour cream (or around 7/8ths of a cup)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2-3 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
Cut the peeled potatoes, the apple and the cucumbers into small cubes. Peel and chop the onion. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Mix the dressing ingredients together and combine with the salad. Allow to settle in a cool place before serving.


Painfully shy Liz Argon probably shouldn`t be dreaming of Veikko Aho, star goalie for the Philadelphia Wildcats. As she works side by side with 'The Count of the Crease' on his memoirs, she finds herself falling for the handsome goaltender. His tender ways with her and her mentally fragile mother are slowly claiming her heart. If only Veikko wasn`t already engaged to a woman far better suited to move in to 'The Count`s' world. In book two of the To Love a Wildcat series, we`ll see if a glass slipper can survive in the rough and tumble world of professional ice hockey.

 Thanks so much V.L. :) I always love having visitors. Hope to see you again soon!
