    Deviled Eggs

    Ready for Easter? Make these Deviled Eggs for the holiday. They are quick and easy to put together with just a few ingredients. 10 minute eggs were used for this recipe. I brought a small pot of water to a rapid boil and placed the eggs in the boiling water. I set the timer for 10 minutes. When done, I rinsed the eggs under cold water and allowed them to cool off on the counter. Next, I peeled the eggs, cut them in half, mashed the yolks in a small bowl and added the rest of the ingredients. I mixed them well to make a smooth-ish filling for the eggs.…

  • Sage + Blackberry Scones

    I know, it’s technically still summer. But it sure feels like fall here in Michigan. The cool temps are quite refreshing and perfect for baking. These Sage + Blackberry Scones were a real treat over the long weekend. I’m not sure about you, but I really enjoy a nice cup of coffee with a savory treat or two. Cover me up with a light blanket on the couch, and I’m content. Except, it wouldn’t last very long. Ahhh the mom life! Luckily I have a decent imagination. Anyway, I love how versatile the base dough of scones can be. The sky is the limit with what you mix in there.…
