Today is about food. Specifically, crispy coconut curried devils. I know it’s been awhile. Moving forward the blog should mirror real life. Lately, real life is less about obvious grief and more about cooking, baking, photography, gardening and that little jelly bean better known as my grand-daughter. Make no mistake. My son is my first thought when I open my eyes in the morning, the last when I close them at night and many moments in between. I celebrate William in all that I do. Like grief, his inspiration is never ending. Enough said. Let’s move on. More food and less grief. I NEED it to be this way.
Do you like deviled eggs? How about Crispy Coconut Curried Deviled eggs? I created this recipe for a contest sponsored by Eggland’s Best. As many of you know (because you have been voting for my entries non-stop) the contest theme is “foodtography” and I was lucky enough to have 3 of my food photos accepted. One, my smoothie bowl cake, made it to the final 4 (woot woot). While voting for the deviled eggs many of you asked for the recipe. Today, I am happy to be able to share it with you.Print

Those are very beautiful deviled eggs. They look like a dessert to me.
Thanks! They are served on one of mom’s old plates so maybe that is why they appear “sweet” <3
I don’t think you need to feel like it always has to be about grief. I love when you post any stories…Will or food. I needed a good distraction today. On Wednesday I become an empty nester 3 years before I’m suppose to. It was nice to focus on deviled eggs!
Keep blogging on any topic you choose…I’ll know I’ll keep reading and know that Will is always on your mind …whatever the subject is.❤️
Many thanks for this reply as there is this guilt thing that I have about not including him in every post. The writing is so hard some times as it brings me to a dark place. I need to get past that place. Running through fire which is 100% necessary to get to a more enlightened self and I am just about there now.
3 years too soon and I am so very sorry for that <3
Three of my favorite things- coconut, curry and deviled eggs! You are a food genius!
…and you are very kind. Thank you for the compliment <3
