Tuesday's Treasures ~ Deviled Eggs

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

Beautiful Beckett loves to cook, especially bake. Geno always said there were designated devil egg eating days: Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. He always made them and then passed the torch to son John about 8 years ago.


After Beckett was born, about when she was 4, she showed such an interest in cooking, she became his assistant. This year she mashed the egg yolks, diced the onion and helped stir in all the ingredients. I foresee in the future her dad will be the assistant, if he’s lucky! LOL!

Those are delightful photos, Dorie.  Somehow, we managed to get through all of Thanksgiving week without Deviled Eggs.  That is the first time I can remember that happening.

Hello Dorie - I typically associate deviled eggs with Easter but now, I am wondering - why wait for a holiday???

Geno is the one firm about designated devil food eating days so after 25 years it became ingrained! And it still continues as we smile thinking of him.

It's hard to believe Myrl Jeffcoat that you didn't have deviled eggs but sometimes it just happens. With Geno around it would never happen..that use to be something at the top of his list!

Hi Dorie:

What a fun memory this will be! I have a feeling she is going to be quite the cook in the kitchen!

Love deviled eggs but seems we tend to have them only in the summer - perhaps we need to change that.

I definitely think you need to have them more often Jeff Dowler, CRS

Dorie- funny you should mention deviled eggs because on Thanksgiving, Larry asked if we should have them. There was no time to make any.   Neither one of us could remember having them on the holidays but knew we'd had them some time. Love that Beckett loves to cook.

She knows her contribution in the kitchen will be working with her dad on the devil eggs! Glad she likes to cook too!

So cool Dorie Dillard Austin TX . It took me back to when I was Becketts age and my Grandma lived with us. She was a terrific baker and loved to get us kids involved.

You have a wonderful assistant chef in Beckett! Deviled eggs are a main staple at holiday gatherings, Dorie. We went to Texas this year, so did not make any but the family does love them.
