Recipe: Curry Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are one of those classic dishes that many of us remember from childhood. Here is an updated version that brings some zing to the dish. Replacing the traditional mayonnaise with yogurt also brings down the fat count — but not the taste, I guarantee it!

Curried Deviled Eggs

Not your Mother's recipe!


A dozen large or jumbo eggs
6-8 oz plain yogurt *
2-3 T finely minced red onion
1 T  Hurricane Curry spice blend by Your Spice of Life
½ tsp sea salt


Hardboil the eggs, then cool and peel.  [Not sure how to hardboil a perfect egg?  Check out these helpful instructions: ]

Slice eggs carefully in half and remove the yolks to a medium bowl.

Using a fork, mash the yolks until smooth.

Add the remaining ingredients, and blend until mixed well.

Taste mixture and add more salt and/or Hurricane Curry to your taste.

Blend well and carefully spoon into egg halves (or, you can pipe the filling with a pastry bag,  or a plastic sandwich bag with the corner snipped off).

Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, to allow the filling to set.

When ready to serve,  place on a pretty serving dish. Dust edges very lightly with Hurricane Curry, and garnish with fresh parsley or mint if desired.

* you can use a mixture of 2/3 plain yogurt and 1/3 peach or mango yogurt, for a slightly more exotic taste.

Recipe: Silky Paprika Mushrooms

This is an easy, elegant appetizer that is reminiscent of a traditional stroganoff recipe.

Silky Paprika Mushrooms

Serve on toothpicks for an appetizer, or as a side dish.


3 cups halved mushrooms (white button, baby portabellas or a mix of both)
1 red pepper, cored and cut into very thin, 1” long strips
1 cup sour cream
2 tsps Racy Paprika spice blend from Your Spice of Life


In a large sautee pan, sautee the mushrooms in olive oil until softened but still firm. Add the Racy Paprika.

When ready to serve, lower the heat and stir in 1 cup sour cream (thickened plain yogurt may be substituted for the sour cream). Stir well to coat the mushrooms.

Taste for seasoning; add sea salt and/or slightly more Racy Paprika according to your preference.

To serve: skewer one mushroom with 2 strips of red pepper onto a toothpick. Arrange on an attractive plate, and serve immediately.

Recipe: Sicilian Mozzarella Appetizer

Sicilian Mozzarella appetizer with Sunny Sicilian blend

Sicilian Mozzarella appetizer with Sunny Sicilian blend

This easy appetizer is gorgeous and easy to prepare, but the “surprise” factor comes from the spice that is sprinkled on the plate, under the mozzarella. When you pop a morsel into your mouth, the combination of cinnamon, orange and fennel spice hits your tongue first; then the coolness of the mozzarella soothes it, followed by the refreshing c-r-u-n-c-h of the red bell pepper.
