Okay, the bacon and egg salad sandwich is one of those "why didn't I think of that" genius ideas! I actually named my red, white and blue trifles, "All-American" last year, so I think they could be added to this list of recipes-so easy, and mostly fruit! :) http://www.christinascucina...

You know Pegeen, when you don't have your mother to talk to anymore, maybe you will think twice about how it is such a problem to speak to her for an hour. Think about when she is gone and then you may wish you had just one more chance to have a conversation. Please slow down and be thankful for what you have instead of being in such a rush. Over baked beans for Pete's sake. Gawd.

Those ribs are FANTASTIC and I agree re: the baked beans!! Where?!?! I'm going to make strawberry shortcakes and sdebrango's Brooklyn Blackout Cake. Everything else is TBD (I like dessert). :)

There is one glaring item that is missing, and that is Ian Knauer's Ribs. Deviled eggs and and egg salad sandwich? I think one of those needs to be replaced!
