20 Delicious Ways to Make Deviled Eggs

I could care less if the chicken came before the egg or vice versa.  Nor do I care why the chicken crossed the road.  I DO care about the egg, though, especially when it is deviled into a few bites of absolute heaven.  Deviled actually means to prepare food, usually minced, with hot (spicy) or savory seasoning.  Deviled = hot, get it?  In modern takes on that definition, we use it to mean just about any filling for a hard boiled egg.  No matter to me!  I love each and every one of these deviled egg recipes, from true deviled like the Jalapeno Bacon or Sriracha, to more savory options like Bacon Chive.  Take a look and make a few of these for your next devil-may-care party!

Chocolate Bourbon Caramel Pecan Ritz Cookies

This post may contain affiliate links, including Amazon.  Please visit our Privacy Policy and Disclosures.

Any kind of boozy cookie is my kind of cookie!  Seriously, though, the bourbon in these in minimal and really gives the chocolate a nice depth of flavor that plays well against the sweet caramel and nutty pecans.  I would make a double or triple batch of these.  They are really good and once you eat one…well, you know the rest!  Enjoy these with a nice cup of coffee, bourbon optional in that!

Chocolate Bourbon Caramel Pecan Ritz Cookies

Yields: 1 dozen

INGREDIENTS
24 Nabisco Ritz crackers
12-15 caramels, unwrapped
1 Tablespoon whipping cream
11 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1-1/2 teaspoons bourbon (I like using a good bourbon.  Don’t cheap out on this.  Airport bottles are a good and cheap way to get good liquor without buying the whole big bottle.)
1/2 cup chopped pecans

DIRECTIONS
1.   Line a large baking sheet with wax or parchment paper.

2.   Lay 12 of the Ritz crackers on the lined pan, spaced apart by at least 2 inches.

3.   In a microwave safe bowl, add the caramels and whipping cream. Microwave for 20-30 seconds and stir. Continue to microwave and stir, in 15 second increments, until smooth and fluid, taking care to not overheat.

4.   Allow the caramel sauce to cool for 10 minutes.

5.   Place 1 Tablespoon of the caramel sauce on top of each cracker on the baking pan. Place the remaining crackers on top of the caramel (like a sandwich) and chill for 30 minutes. It’s fine if some of the caramel oozes out the sides.

6.   In a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips over low/medium heat, stirring occasionally and taking care not to overheat. Once melted and smooth, add the bourbon and stir well to incorporate and heat an additional 30 seconds. Remove from heat.

7.   Dip each chilled sandwich cookie into the melted chocolate. I transferred my chocolate to a warmed smaller bowl for easier handling. Coat each cookie completely and place back on the baking sheet.

8.   Sprinkle with pecans and chill for 15 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.

9.   ENJOY!!

You can store these cookies in an airtight container for up to one week.  They will not last that long in my house!  These are good.

Thanksgiving Turkey Candy Bar Wrap Favor

Your guests will “gobble” up these cute as can be favors!  Use any full size flat candy bar.  We used Hershey bars!  Perfect for accenting your table as a favor or use also as a place card.  These are really easy to make and will be oohed and aahed over while your guests wait to fill their plates.  Enjoy!

Resources:
* all craft items were purchased at Hobby Lobby.
 
I find some similar items online:
 
 
 
 
 

Supplies:

(2) packages of Felt Turkey Stickers
(1) package of Paper Leaves
(1) package of Fall Raffia Bows with Buttons
(1) roll of Fall Textured Ribbon
(2) 12×12 pieces of Fall Scrap Book (or colored) paper
Glue Gun
Scissors
Ruler
(6) Candy Bars
 
Directions:

Take the 12×12 paper and fold it in half. Then fold it again in another half. This brings the squares down to 6×6 (inches). Then trim down one of the sides. Your final “square” will be a 6×4.5 (inches).

thanksgiving_turkey_candy_bar_wrap_favor_directions1

Place candy bar in the middle of a square. Fold each of the sides around the candy bar.

Glue the two pieces of paper together. Be sure you do not glue the paper to the candy bar. You want to have the ability to take the candy bar out of the party favor.

Cut (6) strips of ribbon (4.5 inches each)

Lay a piece of ribbon flat on the table. Place the candy bar/paper on top of the ribbon. Glue the ends of the ribbon on the back side of the candy bar/paper.

Flip the candy bar/paper over to the front. This will be the side you decorate.

Glue a fall raffia bow on top of the ribbon.

thanksgiving_turkey_candy_bar_wrap_favor_directions2

Glue a paper leaf (be sure to put glue on the stem) and slide it into the ribbon. Press firmly on the paper leaf so it sticks to the paper.

Add a felt turkey sticker.

Repeat until you have the amount you need for your party/dinner guests.

And that’s it! A super, easy Thanksgiving party favor your guests will love. And, you can also use these party favors as a name place setting at the table.  See how they look in our Rustic and Warm Thanksgiving Fall Tablescape!

Rustic and Warm Thanksgiving Fall Tablescape

Create a less formal yet still sophisticated table setting for your Thanksgiving feast

A rustic yet sophisticated table is one of the trendiest looks for Thanksgiving and Fall dining.  The setting is homey and evokes the idea of family togetherness blended with the formality that the Holiday inspires.  Using fancier items with the inspiration of nature and Earth’s bounty creates a welcoming yet festive table that your guests will be pleased to dine at.

Supply and decorative links are provided so you can replicate this look, or use it as inspiration and find things that you already have to make your table your own masterpiece.  Even using items from outside, like twigs and acorns, can bring the setting all together.  Kids can gather pretty leaves and add them to a clear glass vase, for example.  Use your imagination, get out grandma’s china, and make some new memories.

Enjoy, and have a great Thanksgiving!

Rustic and Warm Thanksgiving Tablescape

Supplies:

Decorations for the table:
thanksgiving_fall_tablescape_couponistaqueen-com_table
Directions:
  1. Place white linen tablecloth across the table. You can always use an orange or brown tablecloth as well.  Go with what you like!
  2. Add a fall-themed table runner, and place it in the middle of the table. I found this particular fall table runner at Home Goods. You can find them there, Kohls, Target or online in a huge variety of styles and patterns.
  3. For the center decorations, I placed a Harvest/Fall themed swag in the center of the table. I added an assortment of plush/velvet pumpkins on the side of the swag. Check out similar swag ideas for inspiration.
  4. Set the table. First, lay down the linen chargers. Add a white dinner plate, followed by a brown salad plate.
  5. Place the silverware at each place setting (fork on the left and the spoon and knife on the right of each plate).
  6. Taking a brown linen cloth napkin, fold it in half and slide through the fall napkin ring. Straighten the cloth napkin, and then place it on top a brown salad plate. Repeat this process until you have completed the desired amount.
  7. Don’t forget to add a glass to each place setting.
  8. For additional fall fun, I added a few tall yellow vases found at Target. I placed them towards the end of the table and placed fall leaves inside each vase. Don’t worry if you don’t have enough room for additional decorations. Your food will also play an important roll in your Thanksgiving tablescape, and help dress the table and set the mood — after all, you are there to eat, drink, and enjoy.
  9. Add the Thanksgiving Turkey Candy Bar Wrap Favors to your table and prepare to entertain your guests!

Don’t Drive Drunk this New Year’s Eve — Get a Sober Ride or a Tipsy Tow

This post may contain affiliate links, including Amazon.  Please visit our Privacy Policy and Disclosures.

There is NO excuse for Drunk Driving.  Even driving tipsy or buzzed is drunk driving!  The best plan is to plan ahead for a designated driver to get everyone home safe.  If you have too much fun this New Year’s Eve, please get a sober ride home.  And note to parents: Teens are more likely to drive intoxicated on New Year’s Eve than on any other night, so please also make sure that your kids know that they can call you at ANY time for a sober ride home.

If you need to keep someone else from driving, do your best to convince them to not drive, and to give you the keys.  Do not get into a physical altercation over the issue, but tell them that you are calling the police if they do not comply…and you MUST follow through.  Lives depend on making that call if need be.

AAA is offering a FREE ride home for you and your car through their Tipsy Tow program.  You do not have to be a AAA member to take advantage of this service.  It is not available in all areas, so please check for Tipsy Tow in your area and put the number in your cell phone now: 1-800-222-5347.  Tipsy Tow is available from 6 PM New Year’s Eve through 6 AM New Year’s Day.  

If AAA is not available in your area, please check for a sober ride program near you, or search Google for “sober ride” and your area.  You can also order a car from Uber.

Couponista Queen and Staff wish you all a Happy New Year.  Please be safe…we want you around in 2017!
