Easter Deviled Eggs, and Other Delights

I think it’s time for another Easter recipe, don’t you think? Of course you do!

This one time (last week), I didn’t Google my usual recipe for oven-cooked hard-boiled eggs and I set the oven temperature to 400 instead of 350. Oh boy, did those suckers turn out HARD-boiled after 30 minutes. Let’s hope my recipe redeems me today:

Years ago when I lived in San Francisco, my radio DJ sister came to visit us for a fun-filled weekend in August. Of course, we took her out to Sonoma (yay!) and Napa (less, yay.. but still yay!) and of course, she had connections even out there. Somehow she got us a private tour of a beautiful Napa winery – complete with cascading waterfalls, glistening chandeliers, and all of that outdoor scenery that makes you wonder why you don’t live in California. It was only two years for me..

..but that’s why I lived in California!

The honorable thing to do when you visit a winery, especially one with free everything, is to buy something from the gift store. I don’t drink wine, at all, and I don’t know a thing about gifting it. Then a recipe book for “Deviled Eggs” caught my eye. Of course I bought that! I love deviled eggs ever so much. What’s not to love? I used to make egg salad and deviled eggs at my old job as an Innkeeper in San Francisco. A crowd pleaser! Then you make it all spring and pastel-y and it’s Easter!

Today was a bit of a Monday. We had our annual taxes appointment and I was really nervous about a photo job. Why? It was for only adults, and ones who knew what they wanted. An indoor setting, wardrobe changes, and lots of people. Photography is so very intimate. And when I’m feeling especially empathetic, so basically ALWAYS, it takes a lot out of me. I hope it went well but it was over a three hour gig. I think photography speaks more to my extroverted side, and blogging speaks to my introverted side. Even if I “sound” extroverted at this here blog or on social media, you have to remember that I’m doing all of this behind a computer. In a loft office overlooking the woods – and sometimes while eating bon bons. Or deviled eggs.

That’s why I’m a true ambivert.

Oh, and the taxes thing went well too. I was so nervous! I always am, no matter where I am in life and what I’m doing. And what would I rather be doing? Getting uncomfortably close to you with a camera.. or eating bon bons behind a computer.

While looking at photos of deviled eggs. Don’t worry – I eat them, but not at my computer.

  1. Deviled eggs are my specialty. I just love making them because they not only taste good but they’re so easy to do. We’ve actually done a few colored ones around Easter as well, quite like these but added a bit extra to our eggs. I will have to try your recipe as well.

  2. Yep, it’s time for some Easter recipes. Deviled eggs are delicious, and all these boiled easter eggs need to be devoured. LOL I love Sonoma more than Napa also Tamara. Living in California, is like living in a post card, a very expensive post card. I have yet to run across a free winery, I know they are out there but I always pay for my tastings and tours. I love love love this colorful deviled egg recipe. It’s prefect for Easter.

  3. Love that you added colors! I think these are really perfect for Easter. I remember when my friend made deviled eggs for Reiko’s birthday, it was sooo good!

  4. This is the most perfect easter treat ever!! I need to try this with the kids. My eldest may say no, but my youngest will totally be down.

  5. Your deviled eggs are so pretty, Tamara! Love all the pretty pastel-y Easter-y colors πŸ™‚ And they look delicious, too. I haven’t had these in ages, but they are so awesome. Thanks for sharing your recipe (and photos)!
