Vacations, lazy days, warm weather, barbecues.... the list goes on!
Summer also brings the start of life groups at our church, and I just started a cooking life group for the first time!
My friend Laura and I are leading it together, and we're very excited. It's part cooking class, part dinner party - conversation, learning together, eating together, and growing in life. We're using Shauna Niequist's book Bittersweet to guide conversation. It's perfect - it totally encompasses every part I wanted to include in this group. It's full of life, meaning, and inspiration. It's been a dream of mine to incorporate my cooking in some way like this, and it worked out perfect. Laura and I are so excited to be doing this together.
These deviled eggs are a perfect summer dish. The truffle oil adds just a touch of richness to this dish that is perfect. You can bring it to those barbecues we were talking about earlier, or you can make a batch and eat the WHOLE thing... by yourself! ;)
