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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
