#10DaysofTailgate: Herbed Deviled Eggs

The quinessential finger food? Deviled eggs! Last year, when I hosted a virtual potluck Eggstravaganza, bloggers shared over half a dozen deviled eggs recipes and many more delicious bites. I decided that I needed to bring some to #10DaysofTailgate. One of the event sponsors Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices had sent me a cooler full for prepped herbs for participating, so I whipped up some basil eggs, parsley eggs, oregano eggs...you get the idea. The only ones that made it to the photo shoot were the basil eggs. Whoops. I guess I should have photographed them before telling the boys that the eggs were done!



Ingredients
  • 6 large organic eggs
  • 1/4 C organic mayonnaise
  • 1/2 t ground mustard
  • 1 t crushed garlic
  • 1-2 T fresh herbs (I used some prepped herbs from Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices*)
  • fresh herbs, whole leaves, for garnish

Procedure
Hardboil your eggs. Cover eggs completely with cold water by 1 to 2" in a heavy saucepan and bring to a rolling boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer eggs, covered with a lid for 30 seconds. Remove from heat and let stand - covered - 15 minutes. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice to stop cooking. Let stand 5 minutes.

Peel eggs and halve. I typically halve them lengthwise, but did it widthwise this time to fit in my ceramic egg crate for the photos! Note to self, when you slice them widthwise, to maximize fill space, you're really only chopping off the top. I needed to cook 12 to get 12. 

Remove yolks as carefully as you can and mash in a bowl with a fork. Add mayonnaise, ground mustard, garlic, and herbs. Stir with fork until smooth. Fill egg whites with deviled egg mixture and garnish with fresh herbs.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
