s+s chow: eggscellent

Ahhhh Easter. The holiday where it is socially acceptable for me to ingest a dozen in eggs mixed with mayonnaise and seasonings (specifically papa-rikahhh as Paula Deen would say) all in one day. Keeping it super low key around here. Just too, too much going on. So apologies are in order for no Easter table inspiration. Sorry, sorry, sorry. This Easter will consist of shoving boxes out of the way to clear a space for table side dining. Let's be honest, to the couch we will go. However, you all are still glamazons and can totally impress your guests with these uber chic Easter eggs. 

Ok, ok. So you can't eat all of those. Let's get down to the edibles. Let's face it, my plan this weekend is to consume an astonishing amount of deviled eggs. Morning, noon and night. Around the clock. 

My go to, true blue in the family deviled egg recipe:

12 eggs, hard cooked and peeled
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon creamed horseradish sauce

A dash of pickle juice
Pinch of salt
Fresh ground black pepper 


Boil eggs. Obviously. Cut the eggs in half. Carefully remove the cooked egg yolks into a separate bowl, leaving the egg white shells opening side up. Mix yolks with mayonnaise, mustard and horseradish sauce. Mix ingredients furiously. After the consistency is established, then you can determine how large your dash of pickle juice shall be. Add salt and pepper. Spoon a little bit of the mixture into each egg white half, dividing mixture as evenly as possible between the eggs. Sprinkle eggs with paprika. In our house, lots of paprika. 

And for you adventurous, nonconventional egg makers, you.

And wash them down with a few, ok maybe a carton full, of these chocolate dipped peeps. How adorable are these?! Honestly.

Happy Easter, Spring, or deviled egg day or whatever you shall celebrate!
