all about eggs....

because I LOVE deviled eggs......oooh...why don't i have one of these fancy plates?!

The term "deviled" dates back to the 19th century, referring to the use of particularly hot spices in cooking. Contemporary versions of deviled eggs may include a wide range of seasonings and added foods, such as garlic, horseradish, wasabi, cheese, chutney, capers, salsa, hot sauce, mushrooms, spinach, sour cream, caviar, smoked salmon, or other seafood.

have you ever heard them called sliders?? (our penzey's cayenne pepper jar calls them that) two possible reasons: they would slide pretty well, when you think about it -- imagine a slippery plastic picnic tablecloth racecourse, halved hard-boiled eggs hurtling down it -- or, maybe it's like backsliders? i suppose they would slide on their backs, not on their frothy yellow faces, but i mean backslider in the religious sense -- going back down the devil's path -- a way of saying deviled in polite company? 'sliders.
