Taco Deviled Eggs

The Annual Deviled Egg Pageant strikes again! This year the eggs that I made were not technically winners, unlike previous years' eggs (last year's roasted garlic deviled eggs, and the first year's dill and stone-ground mustard deviled eggs). I like to believe this is because this year's competition was even more fierce than previous years (and plus, I was told that everyone was a winner). Either way, these taco deviled eggs were absolutely delicious and added a spicy twist to a classic dish. This recipe makes 24 deviled eggs.

Buffalo Tots

This weekend, I hosted a TOTluck! It's a great idea if you love potatoes and don't mind feeling like you're slowly turning into a tater tot. I made a couple different dishes for it, but this one was easy to throw together and everyone seemed to enjoy it. This recipe makes about two dozen bite-sized appetizers.

Cranberry, Walnut & Goat Cheese Salad

This past month, I went to a family gathering and my aunt made this amazing salad. It was so good and truly is so easy to make. Toss it together for your next event!

Roasted Kale Chips

My partner is damn good at making kale chips, so I had him teach me how and it's surprisingly easy. So, this week, head to your local farmers market, pick up a bag of kale and make some healthy and delicious kale chips. Warning: it is highly likely that you will eat an entire batch in one sitting.

Garlic Basil Beer Bread

I have a little basil plant sitting in my kitchen, begging me to use its leaves every time I walk in the room (so expect a lot of basil posts in the next couple weeks). If you don't know this about me already, I love cooking (especially baking) with beer, because you don't have to add additional yeast and you can just put it right in the oven with no wait time. This recipe makes one loaf of bread and is perfect for a filling snack.
