You guys, I wish I took that picture^^!! Right? How beautiful is that? The composition, the little sprinkle of pepper. Gah! I love it! My friend, artist, photographer and food blogger Emily took it. She blogs over at Jelly Toast. And I kinda adore her and pretty much everything she does.

 

Emily and I became friends a while ago through an online group of food bloggers, and I think it took all of ohhhh, 20 seconds to realize that we were two artist-turned-food-blogger peas in a pod. We have helped each other with photography inspiration over the last year, and swapped contacts for freelance work. She rocks. Annnnnd I am totally obsessed with her deviled eggs. And as you can see from the pic above that’s what she is sharing today for a guest post! {How have I never posted a deviled egg recipe here? So glad she is doing that for us!}

Please find Emily on social media, give her a shout, and make us both super duper happy by leaving a comment below welcoming her here.

Hi Everyone! I’m so excited to be hanging out with you today. When Katie invited me to be a guest this month, I got to thinking about what type of recipe I’d like to share. When it comes to the holidays, I start thinking almost exclusively in snacks and cookies. If I’m being totally honest, I’m just about burnt out on cookies. I know, I know. It’s not even Christmas yet. I don’t want to point fingers, but I blame my family’s baking get together two weeks ago that totally loaded me up with enough cookies to fill my freezer and my stomach. Whatever it is, I have firmly moved into snack and appetizer mode.

Spinach and Bacon Deviled Eggs recipe on Healthy Seasonal RecipesWe all need a little savory in the sea of holiday sweets.

I am crazy about deviled eggs. Seriously, I adore them. My Great Grandma used to make the very best deviled eggs and every time I make a batch, I think of her. But, I’m embarrassed to admit that I often pigeon hole deviled eggs into Spring and Summer. It starts at Easter when I begin to whip up batches of deviled eggs from my Great Grandma’s classic recipe to adventurous twists that involve salmon or figs. Then Fall rolls around and my deviled egg making fades drastically in the light of all the apple and pumpkin goodness. This year, I’m making a conscious effort to bring my beloved deviled eggs to the Winter holidays.Spinach and Bacon Deviled Eggs recipe on Healthy Seasonal Recipes
