Steak Salad with Poached Egg and Creamy Chive Dressing

What?  She made a salad?  Oh yes, she sure did! Despite what some may think, I do enjoy a good salad.  That said, I am not a weeds and lemon juice kind of gal (no offense to those of you who are).  If you are going to feed me salad there are a few requirements that must be met (not that I am difficult to live with).  First, it has to be hearty.  Steak, chicken, eggs, or even beans are a must on a salad because I need protein to keep...

Baked Potato Salad

Last year I visited my family in Houston and while I was there I had my first taste of Baked Potato Dip.   It is a concoction of sour cream, mayonnaise, bacon bits, green onions, and cheddar cheese which is served with salty potato chips.   Overall the dip is pretty tasty and I have made something similar at home, with fresh cooked bacon in place of the bits, and everyone who has tasted it enjoyed it.  Now, let’s fast forward to...

Egg Salad

If you are anything like me, you have a few left-over eggs from Easter.   When I was growing up we never had egg salad.  Maybe it was because my parents did not care for it, or maybe they never thought of it, but we never had it.  Once I struck out on my own I decided to give it a try, but I found a lot of the recipes I tried were either too bland or had too much onion or sweet relish, which overpowered the other flavors.   So, I...
