Deviled Eggs with Capers and Shallots

These Deviled Eggs with Capers and Shallots are a subtle twist on the average recipe and are perfect for Easter brunch.

Deviled Eggs with Capers and Shallots

Are there any other deviled egg lovers out there? I absolutely love them and don’t make them nearly as often as I should. Partly because I’m an egg lover and the hard-boiled ones never last long enough to actually turn them into deviled eggs (Hello, egg salad!) and partly because they seem kind of fussy when no one else in my family eats them. But my kids love to dye Easter Eggs, so it’s an ideal time to make deviled eggs. I mean, c’mon; what else are you going to do with 2 dozen perfect hard-boiled eggs?? This year I’m making them a little extra fancy, just because I can. Say hello to Deviled Eggs with Capers and Shallots.

Easy Parmesan Pinwheels

Appetizers are one of my favorite things to serve when entertaining. It’s kind of ironic, since I’m not really much of a snacker between my meals any other time. But put some appetizers in front of me and a cocktail in my hand, and it’s a whole different ball game. It just seems meant to be; those little appetizer  bites just pop right in your mouth. And that is just what you’ll do with these Easy Parmesan Pinwheels – just keep eating one more.

Opal® Apple Cranberry Chutney

I don’t think baked brie is really affiliated with any holiday; it seems to show up whenever there is a party. But the pretty pink color of this Opal® Apple Cranberry Chutney was too lovely not to share for Valentine’s Day, especially since Opal Apples are in season right now.

Bacon Cream Cheese Bites

I have a new appetizer for your Super Bowl party today, and I can’t believe I haven’t shared them with you yet: Bacon Cream Cheese Bites. Now before we talk about these gems, let’s set a few things straight. Our food on Garnish with Lemon is generally family-friendly and mostly healthy (with the exception of excessive chocolate or cheese here and there). I am a firm believer in balance and not elimination of any food group. These Bacon Cream Cheese Bites I’m sharing today are in no way, shape or form healthy, but they are family friendly and incredibly easy. It is a simple indulgence, and I know you will be thanking me for it later.

Bacon & Apple Jalapeño Poppers

There are some foods that are simply synonymous with the Super Bowl. I’m talking wings, nachos, chili, pizza…the list goes on and on. But don’t forget the tried and true jalapeño popper in the midst of all that football food goodness. These little babies have been a mainstay at nearly every game day party I’ve ever attended, and they are always a crowd pleaser. So this recipe for Bacon & Apple Jalapeño Poppers may seem like a no-brainer to you. But adding a bit of tart Granny Smith apple and savory green onions to the mix takes these pops to a crazy addictive level.
