When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.

(Amazing Grace)

Healthy Egg Salad

Soon the Easter Bunny will come and go and then what? Once the novelty of dyeing and hiding and finding eggs passes, what will you do with all those eggs hanging around your house? They won’t last forever you know.

If you want to whip up a family meal using an entire basket of Easter eggs, I suggest this healthy egg salad recipe. Healthy because it’s made with Greek yogurt instead of mayo. (And let’s be clear, I’m referring to boiled Easter eggs not plastic Easter eggs, although you may have those hanging around too…)

healthy egg salad ingredients

Healthy Egg Salad


  • 5 hard boiled eggs (I use Great Day Farms)
  • 3 Tablespoons Greek yogurt (I use Fage)
  • 1 stalk celery finely chopped
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • dash ground mustard
  • sea salt
  • pepper


  1. Dice eggs and mix with yogurt. Add remaining ingredients and mix. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Add additional yogurt and/or lemon juice if you prefer a thicker or thinner consistency. Serve with crusty bread as egg salad sliders, on crackers or carrots as appetizers, or scooped on a bed of lettuce.

They say it’s your birthday!


Forty-nine years ago my life changed when the stork brought me a little sister. A best friend and constant companion. A playmate and co-conspirator. Even though I was two years, nine months and seven days older, Momma dressed us alike and many people came to believe we were twins.

Some still do.

I try to recall my first sister memory, but I can’t find it. My memories are all of us together.
