Jen’s Avocado Deviled Eggs

I love deviled eggs. They’re the perfect appetizer, a fabulous breakfast, the best thing you can find in the fridge post-workout, cheap party fare, darn delicious, and they’re flippin’ cute! I could write poems to those little guys all day!

Stephen King’s IT. Veggiewise the Clown. Terrifying produce.

I’m getting lots of emails asking for details of how I made Veggiewise the Clown. Because IT part 2 just came out! I can’t even wait to see it! My Veggiewise is the old-school Tim Curry version. I need to do a Bill Skarsgård version. That would be terrifying produce. I updated the post with veggie details. Happy Halloween season, everybody!

Jen’s Bratwurst, Potato, and Onion Tray Bake. Easy and Delicious! Bon Bratétit!

My youngest and I walked through Costco hungry yesterday. “Mmmm. Feel like brats?” She responded, “Um, yeah!” I’ve been in Texas for 10 years now, but I grew up in Wisconsin, and sometimes that need for brats just hits. If it were summer, I’d be talking to you about grilling them and tossing them into a beer hot tub, while enjoying an ice cold beer on my partio (like a patio, but equipped for fun. Cred to my friend Tracy for my favorite summer word). A few years ago, I had all my ingredients for the brat tub and it started raining. I love my grill, but draw the line at rain and tornadoes. With that, the Brat Tray Bake was invented. It was so awesomely cozy that it was an obvious keeper. It’s super easy, so kids can get involved and proudly bring trays of yum to smiling people at the table. Niiiice.

Okay, since there’s no tub of beer waiting for your brats on the grill, it’s imperative that you begin with fresh beer brat links. Plain and pre-cooked are right out. Don’t consider them. Unless you have to. Then okay.

I’ve included pics of my kid prepping everything below, because she cracks me up. Her coconut oil hair mask and onion goggle combo is quite the fashion statement, no? The onion goggles do work well, though. Okay, she glared at me….

Bon Bratétit! If you love it, come find me again! 😀
