“It's not even Easter, but I boiled a bunch of eggs so I had an excuse to prepare another one of my favorite naughty foods--deviled eggs. This is a simple recipe, but very good. I have to confess, I never bother with a piping bag because deviled eggs never last long enough for me to look at. I don't have the patience to make them pretty--I just want to eat them. It's kind of like, why bother making the bed when I'm just going to get back in it? Recipe courtesy of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Comfort Food.”
