One of the things I always loved about Easter was the deviled eggs and Easter eggs my mother would make me for lunch during the next week. Do you have a favorite way to use the hard-cooked eggs that you color and hide or put in Easter baskets? If so, please share it here. If you make deviled eggs or egg salad, what do you use? Mustard and Dijon, as I do? Sweet relish, as others prefer? Nouveau ingredients, like crab, bacon,  jalapenos or truffles? Whatever your preference, please share.

Farm eggs (these are from Sonoma's Aubin Farm) are so colorful these days you can do without the dyes and still have a colorful basket

And should all your eggs not be hard-cooked, here are some of my favorite ways to cook them in the spring, from the Seasonal Pantry archives, of course.

    I love deviled eggs and usually save them for Easter! I make egg salad all year round however just because I love it. I learned how to hard cook my eggs in a steamer basket and they come out perfect every time. Cook them for 13-15 minutes in a steamer then plunge into ice water. This gives you perfect eggs with no green ring and even the freshest eggs are easy to peel which is important for me because my eggs come straight from the hen!
