Fried Deviled Eggs

We love deviled eggs at our house. They aren’t just for leftover Easter eggs or for hot summer days. We have them in the winter with slow cooker barbecued pork, as a side dish for broiled fish and with the assortment of excess leftovers we froze over the holidays. They are a great protein source…

Apple Crisp

Recently after a photo shoot, I had leftover apple pie filling. Since I hate wasting any food, I decided to utilize it in a crustless apple crisp.
