About Me

I have been cooking my way through life for over 50 years, beginning with mud pies as a child. I've turned a corner now and feel a Renaissance in my life. Recipes and Random Thoughts is my personal spin in a blog about how to prepare good food and how it prepares you for life. I want to share with you, honest to goodness food punctuated with perspective from the special memories and moments that have marked my journey.

There WILL be Deviled Eggs

I'm not sure what I'm serving for our family Easter gathering but there WILL be Deviled Eggs.  I've been puny this week suffering from a bug that has left me washed out and weak.  I have no appetite, which is like a sex change for me.  I can't quite gather my thoughts yet on the looming meal that I usually work over like the battle plan for the Normandy invasion. No momentum has gathered in my refrigerator which is fairly sparse now except for the Gator Aid, ginger ale and saltines I've been existing on for the last few days. I should be back up to speed, I keep telling myself as I put off the decision to bake cookies one more day in hopes the sight of flour and butter won't send me to the bathroom. 

The one  required dish is the ever popular Deviled Egg.  They are good just about anyway you prepare them and thankfully,they require modest effort and time, which I believe comes under the "quick and easy" tab. I think I can handle it.  They are a winner anytime.

6 large hard boiled eggs, halved and yolks removed to a seperate bowl.
 1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tbls sweet pickle relish
1/8 tsp salt
dash of pepper

Mash egg yolks and add remaining ingredients. Spoon or pipe into egg white halves and top with a sprinkle of paprika.
