Four couples who like to cook. And drink. And travel. Every few months, we gather at someone’s home for our Gourmet Club dinner cook-a-thon.

Dinner party for four here. Casual menu:  Larry made his Excellent Pizza. I was excited for dessert, Butterscotch Pudding.  But while shopping for ingredients, it struck me…  I hadn’t planned an appetizer. Wracking my brain (well, not wracking, but thinking harder than normal while shopping), my sis-in-law’s recent pool party snacks struck me as do-able. […]

Killer Deviled Egg

Are you picnicking this July 4th? DEVILED EGGS, friends. “This recipe dates back to my mom’s grandmother,” Laura emailed.  In 2004, I wanted a “killer Deviled Egg” recipe because they are a favorite of mine and friend, Laura claimed her mother’s method was the best.  She was right, and her signature dish morphed into mine.  […]
