Chicken Diable

“Diable” is the French word for “devil”, and when this word is used in connection with food, that usually means Dijon mustard is involved.

This is a good weekday dish, as it is relatively fast to make, and tastes excellent. I usually make it with whole grain mustard, because I like how the grains kind of “decorates” the sauce.

Eggsalad with chives

This recipe is in my favorite category of recipes – easy to make, easy to succeed!

Some would maybe say that it is unnecessary with a recipe for such a simple thing like this, but for amateurs like myself it is always safer with a recipe.

Some recipes have ingredients like curry, mustard, apple, celery, nuts etc. I guess everyone has their favorite eggsalad, and this one is mine.
