Did I get your attention with that title? I thought I might. Actually the name of the recipe is not Passionate Egg Salad, but "Paul Shipley's Egg Salad," and it appears in the wonderful Consuming Passions, A Food-Obsessed Life, a book about which I'm passionate, so I figured it all worked out, title-wise.
The author is none other than Michael Lee West of the Designs by Gollum blog, not to mention seven other books, and a couple of character-related blogs. This woman is prolific. Not only is she prolific, she's good! I adored this book of comfort, recipes, and living life in a close-knit family of Southern crazies. Warm, witty, sweet, and at times laugh-out-loud funny, this is one of those books impossible to put down, but when forced to, as you've reached the end, feel sad that there's nothing more. This is one book I'll be reading again, and once you read it, you will too. Be sure to shelve it with your cookbooks, there are some great sounding recipes in here along with valuable cooking and home-keeping information such as (something I'm still afraid to do) seasoning cast iron.
Now go make yourself an egg salad sandwich, put your feet up, and order this book. You're in for a great time!
