The Eggs-orcist

Feeling particularly dark when I woke up, I attempted to channel my energy back to the light side by taking to the kitchen for an eggs-orcism. I absolutely LOVE eggs, they are so versatile! You may have heard scary stories about making deviled eggs, but when it comes to these hellians you no longer need to be afraid of the dark!

In this devilish version of an old classic, the sweet/tangy relish in the smooth egg mixture and spicy bite of cayenne pepper are made even more provocative by the addition of the smoked paprika.

The only thing evil about these eggs is that they’ll leave you wanting more.


Warning! Nuts can Lead to Streaking

Camping and fishing in good ole Colorado last weekend we brought a bag of roasted peanuts.  We also had a plastic water bottle filled with Tequila.  Needless to say by the end of the trip I thought I had a restaurant concept, Tequila and Peanuts.

Anyways all this talk about nuts…such protein packed little suckers are a great addition to any backpackers load not to mention to any cocktail party.  After the tequila peanut chaser camping event I was also reminded of one of my favorite southern snacks, Boiled Peanuts!

Whoa dude, hang ten in my mouth!  First time I tasted this soft and salty little nut I was sitting on Folly Beach in Charleston, SC after an attempted surf session letting the sun dry me while I gulped down a cold beer. Once the sweet taste of the boiled raw peanut hit my lips I was done for…”Feels so good when it hits your lips….we’re going streaking”!IMG_2864

Warning:Eat enough boiled peanuts while drinking a cold cocktail and you really will be streaking!  Great you say, well then check out this recipe Boiled Peanuts
