I’ve been a fan of tartar sauce ever since my mom used to fry up those square fish patties and served them up on plain ole white bread. It’s also delicious with hush puppies, fries, and catfish. Yes, I am a Southern boy at heart and love, love, love fried foods. When Frisch’s reached out and asked me to use their tartar sauce in a recipe I had a million ways to use it as a dip. But definitely drew a blank on how to use it in a recipe for a minute.
Until the light bulb went off, and I realized how perfect it would be as the base for a potato salad. I knew I couldn’t just toss it into any old potato salad. Frying up the potatoes beforehand though? Equalled the perfect combo.
Also it happened to be the perfect way to celebrate National Tartar Sauce Day, a new holiday that the Frisch’s team has whipped up. The newly minted holiday will always land on the first Friday after Lent begins, and I can hear my Catholic relatives celebrating already.
If you happen to be a fan like myself then you’re in luck because they’re sharing a new recipe every week until April 13th! So follow Frisch’s on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date with all the latest #NationalTartarSauceDay recipes.

Running your own business is great, but it definitely comes with its fair share of challenges. For me the most daunting of those challenges is anything money related. Especially taxes. I’ve always been horrible at money management and budgeting. I thought it would get better running a business but not entirely. You live and learn though, right?
I’m a pro at putting things off that frighten or intimidate me, especially if I have no idea what I’m doing. But with the help TurboTax Self-EmployedI’m stepping up to the plate early to knock my taxes out before I have the chance to put them off. With helpful articles and tools, like SmartLook and Expense Finder they take the guess-work out of filing taxes and make it easy even for money-challenged folks like myself.
There are plenty of tax time tips for those #selfmade bosses out there, but one that’s better learned now than later is working smarter not harder. I’ve used QuickBooks Self-Employedfor a few years now, and it’s honestly made my life 100 times easier. It syncs with all my bank accounts and cards making the process of bookkeeping incredibly seamless. All you’ve got to do is swipe left or right to denote whether it’s a personal or business expense. Yes, it really is as easy as that – especially for you Tinder users out there.
Pro tip: don’t let your transactions pile up though. Sifting through hundreds of them is time-consuming and frustrating. Take my word for it. If you’re looking to make filing taxes even a little less painful look no further. It’ll change your life, I promise.
