Smoked Salmon & Dill Deviled Eggs

Hiiiiiiiiii!! Whatcha up to? Tell me everything. I feel like we haven’t caught up in a while since my newest cookbook has been releasing and I’ve been out on book tour. I’ve had signings in Denver, Atlanta, Boston and New York, and just have two more stop left in Pittsburgh and Chicago. It’s been pretty awesome because each event has been bigger and bigger, so huge THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who took time out of the their schedule to come visit me! I actually had my smallest event so far in my home town, WTF DENVER?! Shame on you. I hate you! No wait, I’m sorry, I still love you. Kind of.

Other than being hella pissed at Denver, I’ve been having a pretty great time so far! It was my first time in Atlanta and it was definitely hot as fuuuu. And I was there on a cool day. The humidity is no freaking joke there. But everyone is so incredibly friendly everywhere you go. I spent a night eating with friends and catching up and a day wandering downtown. No matter where I went, someone was nice in some way. But then that airport. Ew. Get some walkways airport. Carrying a 50# bag on your shoulder through the most giant airport of all time, with no walkways anywhere, made my mood sink. But at least the people were friendly to make up for my new lack of a shoulder.

Then I got to Boston…why are people so angry there? I mean, I have many happy friends there, but everywhere else, they are just so rude. I don’t know if I’m used to extremely happy people because Colorado people are all high or they have constant endorphins from the sunshine, but man, some Boston people were intense. Whenever someone was nice, I’d think to myself, “They’re not from Boston.” Is that terrible? Whatever. The people at my Boston signing were freaking fantastic so there’s hope!

The last stop I had was NYC, which I took the amtrak from Boston to New York and fell in love with train travel. It’s so much less stressful. No taking off your shoes, no checking your bags, you have leg room, bathroom room, it was all quite lovely. I was so anxious and nervous about taking the train, just because I had no idea what to expect, and now that’s all I want.

Even though travel is stressful and annoying at times, it’s all worth it when I get to meet such fantastic people along the way. At each signing I’ve had more than one person tell me how I’ve helped improve their life in some way. Whether that was through recipes I’ve made, through telling my own personal story, or just by being positive, it’s pretty cool to see that I’ve helped someone. Especially women. So many times in life, women are competing against each other or putting each other down, and it’s really nice to be in a situation where I can lift women up in some way.

Ok, that go emotional there. Let’s get into the food. Do you love deviled eggs as much as I do? They are just the best snack ever. This one reminds me of bagels and lox. Now get after it!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I totally here you about Boston people and it’s the most annoying thing when you grew up there but had the experience of living in San Francisco for 5 yrs. It’s sad but you get through it. I loved meeting you at the Boston signing and chatting about Shellac and Frenchies!!! Keep doing what you do, you are a ROCKSTAR!!!! Oh and btw, the buffalo chicken casserole is BOMB.COM!!!

  2. I’m sorry about grumpy Boston people! Apparently they are still not over the 5432 feet of snow we got this winter, but it’s time folks!
    Hope you still had fun anyways

  3. HAHAHAH your comment about Boston people! So true. I have been living here for 6 (omg) years now and I always pay attention to the people passing when I’m walking my dog and I feel like I’ve experienced a small victory when a couple of them actually break a smile at my pup….hope you had fun here at least!!

  4. Hahah UY I would not have expected you to say that about Boston peeps!I have yet to experience much rudeness, but that may be since I grew up in New York all of my life, I notice that people here hold the door, stop when you’re crossing the street, etc., but I live in the ‘burbs now so there’s that. Enjoy the rest of your traveling! XO.

  5. LOL Juli!! Your blog posts always brighten my day!! Glad I’m not the only one to experience the rudeness of Boston people – I thought it was just me that felt that way!! These eggs look amazing BTW – I cannot wait to try them!! I love seeing all your photos from the book tour. Keep up the awesome work.

  6. Boston is actually one of my favorite American cities to visit. I’ve been 3 times and the people have been so friendly, and this is coming from an East Coast Canadian, where we are known to be quite friendly. Hoping that you have a better experience on your next visit and here’s to hoping that you get a chance to visit Canada’s east coast someday!! You would not be disappointed. 🙂

    Love your blog Juli….I read it every day!!

  7. Looking forward to your visit to LA! Odd your opinion of people in Boston – in the many times I have been there, I have found them over the top friendly. I guess I don’t find people in LA friendly – at all. Hate this city. 🙂 But looking forward to seeing you! Your trip looks amazing … congrats on everything!

  8. So last night I had a dream that I ran into you while you were on your book tour…and you were totally in a hot air balloon. It was this awesome blue and white balloon with your paleomg logo on it…maybe you could make that happen for your next book tour?? In my experience, hot air balloon travel is much more relaxing than flying commercial!

  9. Loved your Boston signing, even though you didn’t love our people! Your new book is truly amazing and we’ve loved everything we’ve made so far…both fried plantain recipes, the maple bacon pork, spicy sweet potatoes and jalapeño popper chicken chili….umm, what?! Thanks for making paleo living so damn awesome!

  10. Ugh, Amtrak was the worst travel experience ever! But mostly because they didn’t have my whole family seated together, I was next to a weird old guy, and the trip was all night long and we got ZERO sleep.

    To be fair…this was pre-internet, so they may have improved since then.
