  1. I love all of your receipes but true southern tuna salad has hard boiled eggs in it. You will never convince me I’m wrong. I grew up in Tennessee with the best grandma cook ever! Even all her friends and my grand aunts made it that way!! Consider adding the eggs!

  2. If you can find Famous Dave’s Signature Spicy Pickle Relish at your store, it’s amazing and really kicks everything that you normally use pickle relish for up at notch…
