Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

So very moist and NO ADDED eggs or oil!
Obviously mayo is made from eggs and oil. Also, I use Hellman's (Best Foods) Light Mayo but it is still pretty healthy with regular. Moistest cake ever though. The family loves it. For real decadence frost with Sander's Frosting. YUM!

Stube (Pub) Style German Potato Salad

This has no eggs or mayo so is great for picnics and cookouts since it doesn't have to be refrigerated. We make it the day before to really meld the flavor. Great-Grandfather Bornkessel, a waiter, brought this recipe with him when he left Germany, worked in Switzerland then came to USA. Super high in potassium if you are restricted be careful.

Pork Chop Dinner Complete with Veggies

This makes up either in the oven or in a crock-pot (longer time here). A great one dish meal. You could season it up more if you wish, some suggestions are dry onion soup mix, tarragon, thyme, Mrs. Dash or any herb you prefer. Also, using fresh green beans is much better when you can get them.
