Adorable Deviled Eggs

When I saw these absolutely adorable deviled eggs on Pinterest a while back, I literally squealed in delight.

Last week, while I was browsing Pinterest, this recipe for zucchini boats with tomatoes and cheese caught my eye. I decided to try it tonight, paired with a … Continue reading
