1/2 c butter
1 egg
2 T milk
1/2 t baking soda
1 t vanilla extract
2 1/2 c flour
Cream sugar, softened butter and egg with hand or stand mixer. Add milk and vanilla extract, mix. Add baking soda and flour, mix until combined.

Provided by Erin Page, managing editor
Ingredients
Bundle of asparagus
Spinach or arugula
6-8 slices of cooked bacon
4-6 eggs, hardboiled and sliced
2 T olive oil
2 T red wine vinegar
1 t dijon mustard
1 t honey
pepper to taste
Bring a pot of water to a boil, add asparagus and cook 2-3 minutes, until just tender (as an alternative, asparagus can be steamed until just tender). Drain and run under cold water to stop from cooking further. Mix with several handfuls of spinach or arugula, top with crumbled cooked bacon and sliced hardboiled eggs. Prepare dressing: in a small bowl, whisk olive oil, red wine vinegar, mustard, honey and pepper to taste. Drizzle dressing over salad mixture.
