Making a delicious and hearty breakfast can be a chore when you're still trying to decide which pants to wear with your cap-toe shoes. Until recently, this was my daily struggle. Most days, I walked out the door with just brewed coffee and a piece of toast. No fun.
As far as holidays go, Easter isn't the most stylish. I mean, with all the pastels and baby birds and neon plastic grass, it's definitely not a season for the design-minded.

I eat a Cadbury creme egg about once every five Easters, just to see whether or not this might be the year I decide I like them. Hasn't happened yet.
I eat deviled eggs even less - I've had maybe three in my whole life. In some ways, they're the dish with the highest occurence of the five flavors I just can't get into: hardboiled egg yolks, things with mayo and sugar, and sweet pickle relish. (The other two being casseroles made with cream of anything soup and baby corn).
