Egg Salad Deviled Eggs for Easter/Passover Feast #SundaySupper

It is Easter again, what an amazing time of the year. My mind goes to lemon and eggs right away. I love lemony desserts and I adore eggs but they are something that I rarely make. I am not sure why as my family loves egg salad sandwiches and my goodness what can be easier!! Or is it??

We moved back in September and just recently redid all of our appliances in the kitchen. We purchased an induction cooktop and it has taken some getting used to. Hmmm, how to boil and egg?? Before on my gas stove I would put the eggs in a pot, cover with water, bring to a boil, turn off and then let sit for 10 min. Remove the eggs from the pot and plunge into a ice bath, when cool, refrigerate until ready to use. Okay I tried that with the induction but was worried as it is instant heat on and instant heat off. So I let them simmer for 1 min. and then shut them off. In the end I got gorgeous medium boiled eggs. Fine for egg salad but not for deviled eggs. Back to the drawing board!!

I thought since the water really does stay hot with gas for so much longer, I needed to keep that heat with the induction. So in the eggs went again, up to a boil and gently cooked for 1 min. then down to just below a simmer for 10 min. I plunged them in an ice bath until cool and refrigerated. When ready to make the egg salad I cracked the larger end, it should have an air pocket there and then the peeling is easy. I cut the first one in half anxiously and viola the perfect hard boiled egg stared back at me. I was so excited.

I wanted to make simple deviled eggs, ones that kids and adults will all love. So I made an easy egg salad sandwich mixture and put that back into the eggs. They were all gobbled  down, loved them!!

How do you tell if you have over cooked your eggs? They will have a grey hue all around the yolk, very unappealing. So sometimes it is just a simple thing to master but it takes trial and error and that is what the kitchen is all about. Now I know how to boil a medium egg and a hard boil egg on my new induction cooktop. I hope this helps you out if you have a new induction also.

I wish all of you a very Happy Easter/Passover weekend!!

Mini Lemon Spring Bundts for #BundtBakers

It is bundt time again and I am very excited because I am hosting this one today!! My very first time hosting anything!! So I am thrilled to bring you my theme of Easter. What does Easter mean to you? Is it a deeply religious holiday or one where family and friends get together or little kids hunt for chocolate. Well it is all of that for me. Anyway you celebrate it, it also signifies Spring!! A rebirth of all that we have waited for all winter long.

I had all sorts of ideas for this theme but none of them really came to fruition for me in my mind. Logistically they just didn’t make sense so I went with lemon. The flavor of lemon is so fresh and lively and it really screams spring for me and Easter!!

Indigo Spring/Summer 2014 Collection

I was graciously invited to attend a media event at my local Indigo at Chinook Mall in Calgary, AB to see their Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. I jumped at the chance, I am a big fan of this store. I was also able to bring a friend and brought my girlfriend Cheryl to come and have some fun with me. It was a great evening. They gave us little cards to fill out for our wish list and one lucky person got everything they wrote down, made the night so enjoyable!!

When you walk into Indigo you instantly have a warm inviting feeling. It is all about home, family, entertaining, and of course one of my favorites, reading!!

It is so lovely to grab a coffee from the Starbucks and wander the aisles looking for a good read. I, of course, head for the foodie books.

I did pick myself up a new read called Provence 1970 about Fisher, Child and Beard and the reinvention of American Taste. Can’t wait to sink my teeth into that one!!

Indigo isn’t just books anymore, it is a lifestyle store in my mind. Bringing all that you need, to you in a one stop shop!! Look at all this amazing product. I love the big glass containers, heavenly!!
