Deviled Eggs and Easter Memories

Deviled-Eggs.-LDL.-image-1

Back when I was a kid, I loved Easter. The hunt for candies and prizes was exciting, plus the thought of a fluffy bunny leaving me presents made my entire day. Since I can remember at every Easter there was a plate of deviled eggs—my favorite, even to this day. My normal ritual after the hunt for goodies was to snack…I would stack the top of each of my fingers with an olive and grab a plate of deviled eggs and be on my way.

Lemon Drop Love on Made By Girl Today! Spicy, Warm Kale Salad with Sausage

Spicy-Kale-Sald.-Made-by-Girl

Hey guys! Today is all about changing it up with a warm salad with a ton of flavor and textures. It is far from boring, I promise!

Head on over to Made By Girl today to get the full recipe.

p.s. and don’t be scared by the spiciness, once the jalapeños are cooked down and the oil is infused, it is the perfect amount of spice without being overkill.  Plus the ricotta cheese cools things down for the perfect balance.

I’m still here…

This little blog of mine is meant to be a place where I share inspiration, recipes and overall uplifting things to hopefully help make your life better in some way.

But lately, I haven’t been cooking anything new and exciting. My diet has consisted of tuna, hard boiled eggs, salads, grilled cheeses you know the absolute basics. And though my life is great, I haven’t had a lot to write about. My editorial calendar is way past due and my paintings have been taking up a lot of my time. And to be honest, I’m having a tough time balancing writing and painting. So practicing to block my time would be helpful to learning to balance everything.

I don’t want you to think I dropped off the face of the planet, but I do want you to know that I am figuring things out over here. This is a little growing phase…and I’m working through it.

I would love to hear: How are you doing? Are you growing through anything right now?

Pinterest is something I can get lost on easily—looking at food photography and pinning them to my board has recently become a problem/time suck for me.

I have a history of loving to do this, just the old fashion way—we own a ton of cookbooks, I mean a ton…
