Halloween has always been a personal favorite holiday. Well, one of my favorites, that is. For one, I’d always make an effort to look for the cutest gruesome decors to put in my halloween nook at home. However, since I spend most of my time inside the office on the weekdays and sleeping on the weekends, this year, I’d resort to some cooking and play time inside my kitchen.
This year’s theme? Eggs. What better way to dress them up but by making a classic and updating it. Here’s a list of my personal favorite Deviled Eggs variations. #1 and 2 are my top favorites.
