It is hard to think about Easter without thinking about eggs and deviled eggs are a great way to include some eggs in your Easter menu. Deviled eggs are hard boiled eggs that are served cut in half and stuffed with a mixture that typically includes the egg yolk along with some mayonnaise, mustard and a touch of hot sauce or a garnish of chili powder. Although your basic deviled eggs are great all by themselves you do not have to stick with the basic filling; you can go crazy with the flavours and one of my favourite ways to stuff them is with guacamole! You cannot go wrong combining two already amazing things like eggs and guacamole in a new dish like guacamole deviled eggs! As good as the guacamole deviled eggs sound I could hardly resist stopping there and I had to throw in another amazing ingredient, bacon! Bacon and eggs is a match made in heaven and bacon and avocado is not far behind so why not combine them all in bacon guacamole deviled eggs? No matter how you cut it, these bacon guacamole deviled eggs are bound to be a hit at your Easter gathering!
The only real problem with these little gems is how quickly they will disappear; so make a lot!
So pretty and finger lickingly good!

Donald’s Just Ducky Cupcakes by Cindy Littlefield
We all know Donald can be a cantankerous duck, but these cute candy-billed cupcakes are inspired by his sweet side. Serve them at a birthday party or make a batch for a quick-and-easy everyday dessert.
What you’ll need
Batch of baked cupcakes
Yellow Swedish Fish candies
Kitchen knife or scissors
Small black jellybeans
Tube of black decorating icing
How to make it
Frost the cupcakes, using the knife to pull the frosting up into a couple feathery peaks at the top of the head.
For a duck bill, slice a yellow Swedish Fish candy in half lengthwise. Then press the two halves into the frosting, separating them slightly, at the very edge of the cupcake top (opposite the feathery frosting peaks).
For eyes, press two black jellybeans into the frosting. Use the black decorating icing to pipe on curved eyebrows about 3/8 inch above the eyes.
