Rosie the Riveter Deviled Eggs

You never know…When the factory whistle blew at the end of the day, Rosie the Riveter probably slid down the fuselage of the plane she was riveting, and clocked out to make that walk home with her metal dome lunch pail in hand.  On that walk home she could’ve been thinking about making deviled eggs….OR, maybe not.  If I were Rosie the first thing I would’ve thought about would have been jumping into a nice hot bubble bath!!

The reason I call these Rosie the Riveter Deviled Eggs is because of the style and personality of the young woman who I got this recipe from.  Let’s jump in our time machine and travel from 1942 to 1989, don’t forget your goggles, they help with time travel and make you look more like a time traveler. 

Let’s make a stop into 1989 Covina California where I grew up, went to school, and met my high school sweetheart Nolan.  Well, Nolan had a sweetheart of a kid sister named Holly.  Holly was 13 when I started dating Nolan.  She was a little firecracker…ton of energy, and could talk a mile a minute (a solid trait of the Bedford’s).  Holly had this long wild naturally curly hair, the cutest little figure (which almost got me into a few fights), and a super bubbly (almost goofy airhead) type personality.  She was a typical tweenager…into cheer leading, and loved going to the mall.

When Holly grew into a young woman, she adopted the retro look of the 40s, and it really suited her.  Then she got into restoring old cars with her now husband.  So when I think of Holly, I think of Rosie.  Heavy machinery, old steel, with every feminine quality of a woman.

At some point before she got into cars, Holly was a cook at a health food restaurant.  I was really impressed by this because the Holly I knew as a youngster couldn’t keep track of a thought, much less a recipe.  Well, Holly has grown into an impressive young woman, and I’m so lucky to have her in my daughter’s life (this is her aunt), and blessed to have been in small bits in pieces part of her life too.

I haven’t had too much of her cooking, but this girl can make some hen fruit into something killer diller! (that was some 40s slang for ya).

What a delightful story, I enjoyed reading it. I do love deviled eggs. I leave the eggs to my mom, they have always been her specialty. She is now too old to throw dinner parties but she always brings the eggs to every single get together we have. So Deviled eggs will always be special to me, because they will always remind me of MOM. The recipe you posted sounds so good.

About Me
Born in Mexico...raised a California girl, I'm always trying to find my roots with my cooking. I have a big family with my mom as matriarch and master cook. So I have some big shoes to fill.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking food that my mom always made when we were younger. She doesn't really have any recipes, so it's a challenge. Every time she cooks, it's a unique experience since variations on ingredients are never the same. I also love Mexican food El Paso style. I would like to dabble more in Italian and Filipino dishes. My all time fav is BBQ and down home Southern comfort food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a Mexican Family. Family gatherings center around the kitchen and dinning areas. I love having family around the kitchen cooking, sitting around the dinner table talking, laughing,joking, drinking and eating.
My cooking triumphs
Mastered flour tortillas in 2013!!!
My cooking tragedies
That I mastered flour tortillas in 2013...I think I gained 5 lbs in one week.
