As promised in the lamb chops post, here's my new very favorite recipe for chicken salad. I just LOVE this flavor combination! The first time I made a whole bunch of it, thinking it would be great for lunches for the next week. Bad idea. The pistachios turned soft and were downright unpleasant to eat. So only make as much as you'll use that day, or perhaps the next.


But when fresh, the tenderness of the chicken and the crisp juiciness of the grapes and the crunchiness of the pistachios all come together to throw a party in your mouth.

Easy As Pie Crust

The filling for this blueberry pie is adapted from Betty Crocker. The crust recipe is one my mom got from an old lady friend way back before she was married, and my whole family has always used it ever since. Once you try this crust you will never go back either. Okay, maybe you will, but at least I don't have to answer for your culinary choices. But I really do believe this is the best crust in the world. I've never had another homemade crust that even compares to this, and don't even get me started on store-bought crusts! None of that thick, bland, pasty stuff for me, thankyouverymuch. This recipe is not only virtually foolproof, but it's rich and flaky and simply divine. It will change your life.
