There is something you should know about me.  I am a pretty good cook and an excellent baker…however, I’m not great at recipes.  I rarely measure anything and I never follow a recipe to it’s exactness.  In my opinion, recipes are just wonderful ideas in which you should always improvise!!  If I could sum up my cooking, it would be:  Get your basic idea and then use at least 4 or 5 different recipes and make it one!!  Yep, that’s about it!!!

I do make a mean egg salad sandwich.

Doesn’t it look yummy?!?

Again, I never measure anything, so I had to improvise for you.

:: 2 boiled eggs ::
:: a dollop of mayo ::
:: a squeeze of mustard ::
:: 2 dashes of red wine vinegar ::
:: a smidge of pickle juice ::
:: 1 tsp-ish of sugar {to cut the vinegar} ::
:: salt and pepper to taste ::
:: 3 sprinkles of curry ::
* yields 1 *

My secret to perfect boiled eggs is:  let them boil 8 min then cool.  I’m sure everyone knows that though!!  Peel the shell off the eggs.  Cut eggs into pieces and put in a bowl.  Mix all the ingredients together.  Serve on toasted bread with lettuce, tomato and pickle on the side.

Okay, so, I’m not supposed to eat bread…LAME.
I actually gave the bread to my dog and ate it wrapped up in the lettuce!!
Which, it’s good like that too!!

Egg salad is also good as a dip with crackers or chips!!

{I’m the only one in the house that likes curry, so I have to add it just to mine!}
