Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches
Egg-cellent!!!! I added a few things like celery, fresh dill, red onion, and topped the toasted sandwich bread with heirloom tomato slices and red leaf lettuce. It was so scrumptious! A great alternative for dinner during Lent.

My Best Clam Chowder
CLAMAZING! Super easy and totally delicious! I tweaked it a bit for calorie sake - used a pint of half and half instead of a quart and used half butter and half margarine. I upped the ante and made sourdough bread bowls and blew my husbands mind! Perfect accompaniment to a cold Chicago Winter night. This is getting added to the regular rotation. Yum - YUm - YUM!

Pumpernickel Rye Bread
"RYElly" not a rye/pumpernickel bread. Don't get me wrong - homemade fresh bread right out of the oven is soooo yummy and such a treat it's hard to see the negative. However, after going through the motions of making this bread - measuring, tempering, rising and resting and rising and baking - then slicing a nice hunk off a fresh loaf with a pat of butter - I fully expected to taste rye/pumperknickel...and I didn't. It was good, but not flavorful. My husband said it best, "something is missing." I responded with, "YA, the rye/pumpernickel taste! Hello" Anyhoo - I won't be making this recipe again - I'll be on the look out for a higher rated rye/pumpernickel.
