An Egg-cel-lent Year Awaits !

Happy New Year ! 

To kick things off, my recipe for Deviled Eggs and  ‘cheers’ to an egg-cel-lent, 2018!

Deviled Eggs

Total Time Estimate: 30 Minutes 


6 eggs
¼ cup mayo
1 t red wine vinegar
1 t yellow mustard
add  salt to taste
add black pepper to taste
add paprika (for garnish)


Read entire set of instructions before beginning …

Place uncooked eggs in medium size sauce pan and cover with water. 

Heat water/eggs to boiling (on medium heat) and time for 5 minutes, once water begins to boil.

Place ice in a medium size glass or metal bowl and fill 1/2 with water, set aside.

Gently, drain hot water from the pan. Begin to crack each egg-shell with a firm smack on the top of the egg with the bottom of a metal spoon. Note: crack the egg while still in the pan to avoid burning your hands. 

Once cracked, place each egg in the bowl of iced water. The eggs will cool quickly, once cooled enough to handle comfortably, peel off the shell and set aside.

Slice each egg length-wise and spoon the yolk from the egg-white into a mixing bowl while placing the empty halves on a serving tray. 

Gather all items from the ingredients list and mix together until very smooth. You may need to use a fork during this part in order to crumble the yolk finely. 

Evenly spoon the mixture into the egg white halves and sprinkle with the paprika, serve and enjoy!

These are a great ‘make-ahead’ type of appetizer and can be stored in a container, in the fridge for the following day. 







Healthy Eats – Lower Cost !

I have heard quite a few people say eating healthy costs more and to some degree this is correct. We have to pay more for organics and other items of interest however; here are a few tips to help you save a buck or two the next time to decide to go to the market!


Q. How can I purchase inexpensive fruits and vegetables?

A. Browse the discounted produce section of the market 1st, then proceed to the middle isles.

Almost every market I have shopped has a marked down produce section. By going there first you may score part of tonight’s dinner for 50% off or more!

A. Shop off peak hours.

Early morning shoppers get the worm so to speak because the marked down produce from the night before is going to be most abundant at this time. However; I have also scored great deals in the evening hours about 1 to 1 1/2 hrs before closing!

A. Begin to shop the same market(s) frequently and determine how they operate.

By shopping the same market often you will become familiar with when they mark things down, how often and where to look so there will be no time wasted searching for the prize.

One thing I know for sure is one never knows what one will find but one will always find something and save a bundle following the above three tips!               untitled
