Classic Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing

If you’re old enough, you’ve probably had this salad, Classic Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing, at least if you live in the States. It was everywhere in the late 70’s and early 80’s and was served for decades. And then it disappeared. Fell out of grace.

Two Layer Rhubarb Custard Pie

There isn’t really anything that signals summer’s beginning more than Rhubarb. I’m just crazy about it ever since I was a kid and we’d sit under the honeysuckle bushes dipping stalks of rhubarb into our blue melamine sugar bowl. And I’m even crazier about this Two Layer Rhubarb Custard Pie.

A Dozen Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs

Hard Boiled Eggs in the Instant Pot are possibly the best hard-boiled eggs, ever. If done right. Right is tender, not rubbery, whites & yolks just cooked through with no hint of green. Last week, I wanted to make a dozen instant pot hard boiled eggs that would be perfect for Easter dying or deviled eggs. How hard could that be?

This dish was a new one on me…Featherbed Eggs. I mean, how could you not fall in love with a name like that? It makes me think of country inns with crisp white sheets, quilt draped beds. Cotton curtains blowing in a warm breeze. Comfort.

When the idea of making a Ramen with my Homemade Turkey Stock and a little leftover Thanksgiving Turkey entered my mind, I just couldn’t let it go. I mean seriously I was just under the grip of this cray cray idea. So of course, I started with google and I found the idea of Turkey Ramen is not without precedence.
