Easter is only a few days away, so if you already have your beverages and your entree set, what will you give your friends and family when they arrive at your home? Instead of cheese and crackers or a veggie plate, surprise your relatives with homemade deviled eggs that you can make on your brand new Gerhards appliance.
This recipe is very easy to throw together and there's plenty of versatility with toppings and spices to suit your family's palette. According to the Food Network, after hard boiling as many eggs as you'll need, cut them in half and remove the yolks and place them in a small bowl. You can then add mayonnaise, pickle relish, salt and pepper until the mixture reaches the consistency you desire.
Manually place the egg mixture back into the egg whites, or place it into a frosting bag to give it a whipped look. You can top the finished product with paprika or a bit of cayenne pepper if your family loves spicy foods.
This is a wonderful dish to break out for your Easter brunch or dinner. It's the perfect light snack for cocktail hour and will make a wonderful addition to your table spread.
Roasting a chicken on your charcoal grill is a delectable meal during any season, but now that spring and summer barbecue season is on the horizon, you can try something new this year on your Gerhards appliance. Beer can chicken is an innovative way of cooking an oven stuffer and it will trap the internal juices far better than simply placing it on the grill.
First, you should coat the outside of the chicken with a spiced rub of your choice. Do a bit of research to find the perfect combination of flavor and spice that will work with your guests' palette.
When the chicken is ready, find a can of beer that you love and drink half of it. Typically, the best beers with this recipe are those with spiced notes, such as summer ales and light lagers. Put the end of the can in the open area of the chicken and place it on the grill with it standing upward. After about an hour and a half or when the internal temperature of the kitchen gets between 165 and 180 degrees, it should be ready to carve.
The slow evaporation of the beer will make the meat far more juicy and impart a unique flavor that will make this one of your favorite seasonal recipes.
Whipping up spaghetti and meatballs is a quick and easy dish for many families during the week, but you may cut corners when it comes to your garlic bread. However, you can put a healthy and tasty twist on this dish that can help you cut costs and refine your family's palette for homemade foods.
Making homemade garlic bread couldn't be easier and you can find all the ingredients in your local supermarket.

You can put this on your buttered bread and pop it right into oven at 350 degrees. You can speed along the process by placing the bread in aluminum foil, and it should be ready in just five minutes.
Making homemade meals is just one of the many things you can do with your new Gerhards appliances, which can dramatically improve your culinary capabilities.
Hosting an Easter brunch is a wonderful way to give your family a wide variety of dishes to enjoy during the holiday, but you may be looking for a time-saver.

Working a 9-5 job will sometimes lead to questionable eating choices, and if you're heading out for lunch every day, the expenses can add up pretty quickly.

A turkey avocado sandwich is a satisfying meal that you can whip up for lunch or dinner for your family in a pinch.

March Madness is in full swing, so if your team is out of it or your bracket is still looking promising, you may throw a get-together to watch the games in the coming weeks. If you have a group of friends that consider themselves health food nuts, you may not want to break out fatty nachos or wings – this year, try black bean dip instead!
Black bean dip is a great compromise that can combine easily with game day snack foods but is far healthier. Start by placing a plum tomato, a tablespoon of cilantro, and two tablespoons of a red onion in a food processor. When this is chopped, you can add two cans of drained black beans, a tablespoon of cumin, a pinch of salt and as much hot sauce as you'd like.
According to the Food Network, you can gradually add spice and other ingredients until you reach the heat level you desire. While the dip works great with tortilla chips, you can put out some whole wheat pita crisps or flat bread to appease your health-conscious guests.
The process is made much easier with a modern cooktop or a similar Gerhards appliance that can improve the versatility of your kitchen and infuse it with modern style.

Best of all, this dish will stay fresh for days, so you and your family can use it for lunches or a delicious leftover meal. This is just one of many spring-inspired recipes that can help your family eat healthier and make your weeknight meals much easier.
March Madness is one of the most exciting times of the year for basketball fans, and if you're holding a party in the coming weeks, whipping up a few tasty appetizers is always appreciated by your guests. This year, skip the salsa and the guacamole and try a tasty chorizo queso dip instead.
According to the Food Network, this recipe couldn't be easier and it will yield fantastic results. All you need is a ½ pound of Mexican Chorizo, a cup of Mexican melting cheese or pepper jack cheese, two scallions and tortilla chips for dipping.

This recipe will make great use of your new Gerhards appliance and can be a welcome change from your game day staples.
There are few things that are more delicious than a good hamburger, and it's one of the easiest dishes to whip up for your family. However, eating excessive amounts of ground beef isn't good for their health, so finding a nutritional alternative should be a top priority. Turkey burgers are a great change of pace for your weekday dinner menu and they can be customized to suit your family's tastes.
Making turkey burgers is just as simple as making beef patties, but since turkey isn't as flavorful as beef, you'll have to compensate. Consider chopping a few garlic cloves, peppers and onions to add to the batch to give the burgers a tasty boost.
You can choose to cook the burgers in a pan or simply throw them on the grill. Instead of adding cheese to the burgers, consider whipping up an aioli spread or roasting some onions to put on top. Lastly, opt for wheat rolls instead of white bread to give your family a healthier option.
With spring on the horizon, now would be the perfect time to invest in a Gerhards appliance for the kitchen or the outdoors to improve your culinary capabilities.
