  • Chicken Salad Wrap

    Chicken Salad Wrap This month with The Recipe Redux Challenge June was to upgrade a traditional Sandwich Upgrades.   I love chicken salad and this time I tried to switch it up a bit and used some horseradish leaves from our property. It turned out amazing. The horseradish leaves taste a lot like kale. I have never grown horseradish before it came up all on its own. The previous owners planted two different big patches of horseradish, I wasn’t sure what to with it besides make horseradish sauce so I went to one of the homesteading facebook groups I’m a member of for some ideas and a couple people suggested…

  • Egg Salad

    EGG SALAD I have to say I  love egg salad. I’ve been on a mission to find a way to make a healthy version.  I made this recipe a couple days ago and its so good! And to be honest, there really isn’t anything super special about this recipe. It’s just egg salad, but that’s what makes it perfect? To increase the protein in this recipe I added full-fat Greek yogurt to the egg salad. I like to get, at the very least, 25 g of protein at every meal. So adding in a little extra never hurt anyone. This egg salad will keep you full when you eat with…
