Cozy Food Friday!

This week's recipe is from
Book 11 in the Hayley Powell Food and Cocktails Mysteries
Lee Hollis

For Matron of Honor Hayley Powell, catching a half-baked poisoner before her friend's wedding will be icing on the cake . . .
Liddy Crawford, best friend of food and cocktails columnist Hayley Powell, is getting married. The wedding is the talk of the town in Bar Harbor, Maine, including snide gossip about the age gap between the bride and her groom, local lawyer Sonny Lipton. But the cruelty of the comments is nothing compared to the nasty wedding cake baker, Liddy's quarrelsome cousin Lisa.
So when the belligerent baker is found facedown in a three-tier cake, the victim of a poisoned slice, there are more suspects in town than names on the guest list. With Sonny getting cold feet, Liddy getting hot under the frilly collar of her wedding gown, and a killer possibly crashing the ceremony, Hayley vows to solve the crime before her best friend walks down the aisle . . .
Includes seven delectable recipes from Hayley’s kitchen!

   Cut your eggs in half lengthwise and remove the yolks. Place the yolks in a medium bowl and set your whites aside on a plate.

   Mash your egg yolks with a fork, then add your pimentos, cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, paprika, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. 

   Stir your mixture until it's all well-incorporated. Taste and add a little more salt and pepper if needed.

   Fill your eggs with the mixture and refrigerate until needed. Right before serving, sprinkle a little more paprika on the eggs. Serve and watch them quickly disappear.
