The Easter Bunny is starting to hop hop hop this way!

I have always been a huge fan of deviled eggs. Something about the tangy devilish filling makes me regress right back to those happy childhood memories of Easter egg hunts and frilly spring dresses.

I think deviled eggs are the one Easter tradition I tend to keep. That and the whole inhale-massive-amounts-of-chocolate thing. I am realllllly good at that one.

Speaking of chocolate, I may or may not have completely covered my oven in chocolate cake batter over the weekend. If I did it was obviously a massive conspiracy and did not involve me simply filling my pans too much so the batter would overflow in every direction.

I am daring to go round two with this cake batter next weekend. Maybe it was just the universe telling me that I should make 6 layers instead of 3…

I think I better just stick with these easy eggs for a little bit and get my chocolate elsewhere. Like from a jar of Nutella.
