Egg butter (Finnish Munavoi) is just that...butter and hard boiled eggs mashed together and spread on toast, crackers or even bagels. I added some anchovy and mustard to serve on rye toast for an easy dinner or lunch. —inpatskitchen

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
