Twisted Take on Deviled Eggs

Wild Alaska Crab Deviled Eggs

Mid week before a holiday weekend and the rush is on.  Menus are being finalized and shopping lists are written up.

eggsHoliday menus are my favorite to work up, shop and prepare for. It is an opportunity to decorate the home for the season, which ever it may be, and to let the creative side of the imagination flow.

When it comes to recipes, we all have family favs that we love to prepare. Some are traditional and simply cannot be “messed with” or improved upon. With others, we can get a bit more lively and add some “flair” for the event.

Deviled Eggs were always on the table for family events, and for years I had assumed they could only be prepared one way. As delicious as I found them, I was delighted when it dawned on me, how many flavors could be added to the “basic” ingredients.
