Cracked China Deviled Eggs #LiteraryTeaPartyTime #CookingwithKids


This post is inspired by this giveaway (here) and this recipe from A Literary Tea Party: Blends and Treats for Alice, Bilbo, Dorothy, Jo, and Book Lovers Everywhere by Alison Walsh.* Speaking of Alison, you can find her on Facebook, on Twitter, and on Google+.


When the author posted in a group to which I belong, and invited us create one of three recipes, I was immediately intrigued by her Cracked China Deviled Eggs recipe. And I knew it would be the perfect 'no cook' recipe for a kids' cooking class that I was teaching at a local children's museum. I love when things like this align. The book is not yet released, but it will be available on June 5th. I've pre-ordered mine already!

You can see her recipe below. I didn't change a thing. It was perfect as written. But, when I described the eggs to my family (who are on a school trip), they insisted that I make a batch for them, too.

So, not only is this recipe terrific as written, I made it twice in one day. If that's not an endorsement, I don't know what is! On second thought: I did change one thing. We didn't pipe the filling back into the eggs; we just spooned it in.



You can read Alison's instructions for details, but basically...you boil and dye the eggs.

  

You peel and slice them.


You create the filling and stuff it back into the eggs.


These were the eggs from my class. The kids did a wonderful job and the museum staff even kept the leftovers in their break room for nibbles throughout the day.


And these were the eggs for my family. They will be so excited when they get home.


Delish! Thanks for the great recipe. I did sneak a taste since I didn't get to try any this morning. I can't wait to try out some of her other recipes. Stay tuned.

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!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#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
