I couldn't give you a recipe for naturally decorated hard boiled eggs and not give you a recipe for deviled eggs!
Even though deviled eggs remind me of Tupperware parties from 1950-something and seem like they should ONLY be eaten at Easter because after dying, well, like 4 dozen eggs, what else are you supposed to do?
Well folks, even though deviled eggs DO remind me of poodle skirts and bobby socks and brightly colored Easter eggs, I am here to tell you that deviled eggs are making a come back!
Deviled eggs can be dressed up with so many flavor combinations and pretty plate presentations. Like, take the recipe today... with lemon juice, capers, and Dijon mustard; these ain't yo' Mama's deviled eggs!
