Mealtime Mama: Boil extra Easter eggs and make this!


Christy Walker, who blogs locally at Violets Before Roses, loves to collect cookbooks.

She recently shared this “deviled eggs” recipe with us and she said they are absolutely delicious. She plans to make them for her family’s Easter brunch. The original source is Susan Bigelow of Westover Jr. H.S., Morgantown, West Virginia.

Ms. Bigelow was a Home Economics teacher and her recipe was printed in a cookbook from 1988.
