Drum roll please….it is time for the Annual….DEVILED….EGGS…blog!!!!! (I guess I gave it away in the title.) Hooray!!!!!!!! I think this has become one of my favorite blogs on Felt Like a Foodie. I know that if I didn’t feel the pressure to write about deviled eggs every year…I probably wouldn’t force myself to experiment with the fillings. (Oh who am I fooling…I’m so wild…I would probably do this anyway!) I was perusing the Internet getting some inspiration and I noticed something I never had seen done to a deviled egg before. (Please note…do not look at a website called Deviled Egg Fetishes….if you wonderedRead More →

Okay, maybe that isn’t very “eggciting” but I thought the egg reference was appropriate because I feel like an egg right now. First and foremost, my shell is definitely cracked. This last little medical blip makes me feel like humpty dumpty. It is truly like I fell off a wall. My doctors are in the process of putting me back together but it doesn’t seem to be working.   Think about when you crack an egg. Even with all the duct tape in the world, you aren’t going to find all the pieces and put it back together. I am sure it is as frustrating forRead More →

*** I am still trying to work out the “comment” bug on the new website. I am also trying to lighten up the backgrounds. Thanks for your patience during this transition……and now on to this weeks post.**** Super Bowl weekend is upon us. Are you excited? Is your team playing? Do you know who is playing? (I don’t.) As you know from previous years, I’m not much of a sports buff. (Now if they showed some clips of the guys in the locker in the buff, I may be convinced to watch more often.) Don’t get me wrong, I think it is an interesting sportRead More →

Writing Felt Like a Foodie sometimes is overwhelming. There is a pressure to make sure my recipes are correct, ingredients are accessible and it is a relevant post. (By relevant, I mean, it can hold your interest so you don’t only look at the picture….especially today’s picture!  ZOIKS!!!) As I start to approach my 5-year mark, I am feeling a little more pressure. Am I doing new things? Am I reinventing old favorites? Am I funny? Am I funny looking? The big thing for me is to keep making things that I want to eat and finding stories you want to read. (Or maybe afterRead More →

Why don’t you like me? Is it my color? Do you think I’ll make you fat? Maybe my gooey insides freak you out? Could it be that you just don’t like things that are different? These are questions poached eggs would like to ask you. (By you, I am referring to all the people who have never had a poached egg.) Just imagine being shunned because people are unfamiliar with you. It can make an egg have hurt feelings. I think this is how hard-boiled eggs first originated. All of his anger and disappointment built up inside and hardened his yolk. How do you likeRead More →

My husband and I did something the other day that we haven’t done for a loooooong time. It is stereotypically something guys want to do more than girls but this time I was pushing for it. The interesting thing is that he only wanted to do it if we had another couple involved. Since I am a good sport, I said yes. If this was the only way he was going to do this…the more the merrier! I couldn’t wait to see the bases again and to see who would get the first homerun! Are you like this too? Do you like professional ball games?Read More →

One of the many highlights of writing Felt Like a Foodie is the communication I have with my readers. I get Facebook posts telling them that I made them laugh. I get comments on how they tried a recipe and just loved it! And then I get some emails that are let’s say a little more explicit. (Explicit as in detailed, not as in naughty but I do get those too.) Apparently there are things that I find important to include in a recipe, like exact measurements, that some people just feel are unnecessary. Case in point, my annual deviled egg recipes. Since year oneRead More →

Do you ever feel like your brain is scrambled? That confused feeling when you are trying to complete a simple task but for some reason it isn’t coming easily. You know the solution but for some reason you just can’t get there. (If I were a little older, I’d just say “senior moment” but I can’t use that excuse yet.) I’ve been feeling that way since my hospital stay. I just feel dopey. I find jokes harder to get and I get distracted easily. Look a bird is at the feeder. Where was I? I chalk a lot of this up to the fact thatRead More →

It is that time of year….deviled egg season.  When I started to create this year’s variations, I had to admit something to myself.  I don’t know where chicken babies come from. One of our friends brought me 2 dozen beautiful, fresh farm eggs.  Talk about authentic…they still had hay and poop on them!  (The poop was kind of gross but it made me feel these eggs were more legit.) As I cleaned off my eggs, I started to freak out that I was going to find an underdeveloped chicken in one of them.  How do the farmer’s know what the heck is going on inRead More →

It is funny how things change over time.  Behavior that is normal in one decade may be deemed abnormal the next.  My grandparent’s generation had very definite roles for men and women.  Women were the caregivers and men were bringing home the bacon. My parents generation started to change the roles with women fighting for equal rights as men in the work place and men learning that it was not unmanly to help out around the home and with the kids.  (Or was it my parents generation where the men learned they can go play golf after work because they knew that their spouse wouldRead More →
