Recipes: Patti Labelle Cookbook Recipes?

Patti Labelle has a few cookbooks and I have made things from some of her cookbooks in the past.
Does she has a recipe for Potato Salad?
That's what I'm about to prepare right now. I have several recipes of potato salad from other cooks but I'd like a recipe from Patti Labelle better.

Recipes from Patti LaBelle
Patti's Potato Salad
Makes 8 to 12 servings


3 pounds red-skinned potatoes (20 potatoes), well scrubbed
6 large eggs, hard-cooked (see Note)
1 medium red onion, finely chopped
1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
2 medium celery ribs, finely chopped
2 teaspoons celery seed
2/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
3 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Place the potatoes in a large pot and add enough salted water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, but not mushy, about 20 minutes. Pour out most of the water and place the pot in the sink. Run cold water over the potatoes for about 2 minutes, or until cool enough to handle. Drain well.

Peel the potatoes and cut them into 1/2-inch cubes. Place in a large bowl. Chop 4 hard-cooked eggs and add to the potatoes, along with the red onion, green pepper, and celery. Sprinkle with the celery seed. Gradually stir in the mayonnaise, mustard, and relish (wear rubber or plastic gloves and use your hands, if you wish), being careful not to smash the potatoes. Season well with salt and pepper to taste.

Transfer to a large serving bowl. Slice the 2 remaining hard-cooked eggs. Arrange the slices on top of the salad and sprinkle with paprika. Serve immediately, or cool, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours.
