Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce Recipe

cookbookFor Christmas last year (2012), my hubby bought me a new cookbook called Taste of Home BEST LOVED Recipes.   We have only made a few recipes from the book, but so far every recipe has been blog worthy!   Since we had some fresh dill in the garden and Salmon in the freezer, I decided to make the Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce.  The Creamy Dill Sauce adds a wonderful flavor to this Salmon.

I believe my hubby said it will take me 10 years to try every recipe in this cookbook, if I made a recipe a day!   I love a good challenge.
