About Sheryl

I have been organizing BIG church events for over 25 years. From Thanksgiving dinners, Vacation Bible School, Fall Festivals, Easter Brunch and Rodeo Fest. I think I’ve done it all and loved every minute of it. So I decided to bring some of that experience to Lady Behind The Curtain. Of course writing a blog is way different then orangaizing an event. I have learned so much about recipe development, food staging and photography. All creative outlets.

Cheesy Peasy Deviled Eggs - Lady Behind The Curtain

I love Layered Pea Salad and that is exactly what these Cheesy Peasy Deviled Eggs remind me of.  I just love the versatility of the deviled egg.  Make them as an appetizer for a dinner party or take them on a picnic.  Plus, you can add anything to them.    Like these Cheesy Peasy Deviled Eggs.  You still get the tangy flavor you love but with little bits of cheese and petite peas.  My Easter table is not complete without deviled eggs.  This year I think I’ll serve these instead of the traditional ones.
