When I was pregnant with my second child, I craved hardboiled eggs. At first, I ate them plain or with a sprinkle of sea salt flakes. Then I used them as a sandwich filling at breakfast or lunch. Finally I started making deviled eggs for one…well, technically two. My experimentations with deviled egg recipes ranged from using dry mustard to capers to bacon to chives. As many deviled eggs as I ate from one trimester to the next, I never did get sick of them.
