Advocate staff photo by CATHERINE THRELKELD -- Shrimp Deviled Eggs are a popular party appetizer with all ages.

Robyn Smith, of Baton Rouge, has shared several recipes with me this past year.

She likes cooking and planning for parties or get-togethers, especially if it’s connected to a ballgame.

If she makes a dish and likes it, she makes notes on her recipe and possibly adds suggestions for when she makes it again.

Best of all, she has a good filing system.

Her Shrimp Deviled Eggs are often requested for party appetizers, she said. She experiments with different stuffings, but this is one of her favorites. They’re popular with all ages and relatively inexpensive.
