First Monday Favorites- May 2018 - 17

It's Time.
First Monday of the month and time to link up your favorite recipe for First Monday Favorites, from last month. This is the day you can link up your favorite recipe from last month, not the one with the most views, but your own personal favorite, the one recipe you made that amazed, delighted and blew you away.  You know the one you will be making again and again.  And again. #FirstMondayFavorites
First Monday Favorites

The one recipe I made last month that I will make again and again are these.  In fact it made a repeat appearance last Friday at a gathering. I call them Crazy Squared Deviled Eggs.   I got the recipe from Food Network and then played with them.  I have to tell you, these will be in my rotation on a regular basis from now on.

I started First Monday Favorites because I missed the Secret Recipe Club I'd been a member of for several years. It was a large group, and we were divided into smaller groups.  Every month we were assigned a blog from our group to make and post a recipe from. Each group got one Monday a month.  I was in two different groups, at different times, so I got to know a few blogs. I got so many great recipes from this, and looked forward to each Monday to see what great recipes other bloggers  had made and posted.
And I'm doing this one Monday a month, the first Monday of the month.  My own little homage to a great group of bloggers and cooks.
Actually last month was a great month, we had an SRC reunion, giggle.  And we got assigned a blog to make a recipe from and then we had to wait until we could tell everyone about it. 
In other words, we all posted it on a Monday. 
How cool is that? 
I made a Crab Rangoon Dip which was outrageously good and gave me ideas.   I'll definitely make it again.

Actually April was a busy month for me, I didn't get a chance to make or bake or participate in some of the groups I'm used to participating in.  I had to go out of town and gasp, did not enter a kitchen except very briefly, one day at my daughter's place for almost three weeks.   I made her a vegan Chile Verde and I'll tell you about that later on this month.  Cause it was totally awesome.  Even if I do say so myself.
Last month I made Tiramisu Cupcakes for #BakingBloggers,

well, actually I'd made them in March but had to wait to tell everyone about them until April.   They were so good, I actually did a repeat on them this past weekend for a gathering.  And I'll make them again, but will wait awhile to do so.  Mainly because I'm out of Mascarpone cheese. And not planning a trip to the big city for a couple of weeks. 

Please add a link to the roundup and let's see what recipe you made last month that you'll be making again and again.

  1. Those deviled eggs are the absolute cutest!

    1. Aren't they fun looking and best of all, no peeling hard cooked eggs.

  2. You know how I love a deviled egg...and these look wonderful! I can see why they were your favorite!

    1. Not to mention seeing the looks on people's faces when you bring in this platter. I've been having fun playing with them. And best of all, no pesky boiled eggs to peel.


I love to hear from my readers, so please feel free to drop me a note, let me know if you like something I made, it makes my day.
