Here's the scenario: you are at home and hungry. You have to cook up something scrumptious for you and your boyfriend/girlfriend/ spouse/child/friend, but have limited ingredients on hand.

You have eggs, fresh chives, and a new pepper-mill filled with black peppercorns. Using these products, along with whatever you currently have on hand in your cupboard and refrigerator, what would you make?

To see what I would make,


  1. Since Easter is around the corner I have been craving deviled eggs like mad! I would start by hard boiling some eggs.
  2. While they cook, I'll chop the chives and raid my fridge for any other ingredients that might be tasty in deviled eggs. Red pepper will work well if finely minced.
  3. After the eggs have cooled I will shell, slice in half, and remove the yolks.
  4. Next I will mix the yolks with some mayonnaise, spicy mustard, the chives, the red pepper, salt, and lots of freshly ground pepper.
  5. Finally I will scoop this back into the middle of the egg yolks and chill until it's time to enjoy!
