Garam Masala Deviled Eggs (For Jenna!)

I want to start by telling you that this post is created especially for my blogger friend, Jenna, at Jenna’s Everything Blog. You see, Jenna is going to be bringing her first baby (Alice) into the world very soon, and this post is for her virtual baby shower. Since this is my first virtual shower, I fretted for quite awhile about what I should post about. I wanted it to be meaningful, but not over the top. I really don’t have motherly advice, since I’m not a mother yet, and besides, Jenna is going to be a great mom. Girl don’t need no advice! From what I can tell, she’s got a kind heart, she’s faithful, gentle and has a great hubby–all of which will make her a fantastic mother.

So…I made eggs! I happen to know that Jenna, much like myself, LOVES eggs. I think she also enjoys spicy, ethnic food. These non-traditional deviled eggs are tasty, with a little crunch, a hint of spice, a bit of sweet, and plenty of creaminess. What more could one want in a finger-food?

I busted out the “You Are Special Today” red plate, just for you!

Jenna darling, I hope you love this recipe as much as I do. Enjoy your new adventures in motherhood!

XO, Tobi
