Super Simple Deviled Eggs

          Cannot believe I have not shared my favorite Deviled Egg recipe.  They are my favorite because when I take them to a family dinner or potluck, they usually disappear.  If you are a vinegar/salt person, you will love these.  Mr. G eats them like popcorn.
            I came across this recipe with the help of my Mother.   It has been added to my personal cookbook that my sister gave me in 2004.  You can tell it has been well used.

               After I moved away in 2000, during holiday dinners, I would wait to fix my dishes at Mother's house.  One of those first years she pointed me to a recipe in a Homemaker's cookbook.  I had always made my Deviled Eggs with a bunch of ingredients including mustard & pickle relish.  This recipe didn't seem like it would be any good. It was just too simple. 
        Thinking Mother knew what she was talking about, I tried it.  Everybody loved them!  After dinner, they stood around the deviled egg dish and finished them off.  From that day forward, it was my job to make the Deviled Eggs.   
          Notice I even wrote that I like to add pickle relish.  Actually, it's been years since I've added pickle relish. 
          I tripled the recipe to take to big dinners. Got tired of calculating, usually in a hurry, so I wrote a tripled recipe.
Mix all ingredients. 
      I like the zing in Hellmann's and most of the time I add a heaping 2 tablespoons.  I have found that Duke mayonnaise is tasty as well.  
      I use a substitute sweetener.
      If I make a large batch, I put the filling in a zip sandwich bag & cut a small part of a corner off creating a quick piping bag.

          All my life, folks have sprinkled paprika over Deviled Eggs?  I'm lucky to have found Smoked Paprika and use it.

Quilt Shot Block #50~ HST ~ Nov Midnight Mystery Quilt

This is one of the memory quilts
being made from Mother & Dad's clothing. 
Instructed to make 12 Half Square Triangles.
 Squares were combined.
Stitched 1/4 inch from each side of diagonal line, then cut apart on that line.
I really like using these gel pins from IKEA to mark the fabric. 
They mark easily over the fabric, and don't bleed through.
The HSTs were combined with a rectangle in the center.

Combined 18 of the Flying Geese with the Square in Square.
Combined the rest and added a square in the middle.
I had enough left from the shirts that I started this quilt to make the new HSTs.
Really enjoying this Mystery Quilt, because I still don't have a clue as to how it will turn out.
I have not peaked ahead to see the finished quilt.
So this pile is now waiting for the December instructions.
