Easter has always been one of my FAVORITE holidays! And being able to master “deviled eggs” this year felt so, so good.
In 2013, Justin and I celebrated our first Easter as a married couple in Shreveport, LA. Because he was scheduled to work at the hospital on Easter, the nurses got together and decided they were going to have an “Easter Potluck” in their break room.
Perfect! I thought. This will be a great time to surprise him and the other nurses with some deviled eggs! (My Sister has been making them for years- how hard could they be?)
What I didn’t account for was a huge storm to hit. Our apartment lost power twice. And when I say our home went “dark,” it went pitch black.
Because I couldn’t see what I was doing, I left the kitchen and the eggs cooking on the gas burner. (My logic was that the power went out, so the stove wouldn’t work either.)
Boy was I wrong! The eggs caught on fire and thankfully I was able to see the flames in our apartment right before the power went back on.
Panicking- I called my Mother (who lived in Houston.) I’m not sure what she could have done to help render the situation hahaha but it was worth a shot!
Because she didn’t answer, I tried to rip the fire extinguisher off of our wall. It wouldn’t budge.
Thankfully, my Mom called back and told me to turn off the stove and to put the eggs in water.
Needless to say, I didn’t attempt “deviled eggs” after that hahaha. Until this year…
This recipe, you guys, is so simple and delicious! (I derived it from my Sister’s go-to recipe.) And because we LOVE eggs in the Wolfe house, I had plenty of eggs to practice with.
The Easter Bunny did a FANTASTIC job with the Easter Baskets this year!
He knew we were big fans of the “Young, Wild and Friedman” Playdough kits, so he was sure to include these “minis” in with the Easter goodness.
The Wolfe kids had a blast on an “Easter Egg” hunt in the backyard!
And because we live in San Antonio now, Easter wouldn’t be complete without some cascarones!
It was the perfect introduction to “Fiesta!”
