Sister’s been busy in the kitchen and I had to share her Simple, Savory, Egg Salad recipe with you! Another egg salad recipe?

I also know where to get great filler-free spices and I just had to tell you that too! Well, and I’m proud… Continue Reading

I don’t need that kind of stress in my life, let me tell… Continue Reading
It’s amazing how people that we’ve never even met can touch our lives. A great example of this is my husband’s Grandma Fanny. She passed away years ago, and I never met her…but every time I make baked custard, I think of her. My husband told me the story of how early one morning, Grandma Fanny made two perfect custard pies. Now, she had always made great custard pies… Continue Reading

Like I mentioned in my Spicy Sour Cream Sauce post, I’m loving hot and spicy foods these days. Sriracha sauce gets liberally applied to just about anything. So why not make deviled eggs a bit more true to their namesake? Like, make them Sriracha Deviled Eggs and make them hot and spicy! I’ve recently updated this recipe, too and it’s even more amazing.
