Last week, I happened to checked the dashboard for my blog.  For those of you who don’t know, the WordPress dashboard is basically where you check your settings, create posts on your blog, etc. 

Granted, I don’t check my dashboard everyday.  But I decided to check because I hadn’t in a while.  Normally, I average about 10-15 hits to my blog each day.  But last week, I was getting more than 50 hits a day!  It had been more than two weeks since I posted anything so I was curious what was driving traffic.  Well, it was eggs. 

People were looking for recipes for deviled eggs.  National Deviled Eggs day was back in November so anytime someone was looking for a recipe, my blog would show up because of that post

Now, I find myself with about 8 eggs I need to crack.  So I thought I would post some recipes.  You can also check out www.deviledeggs.com for some ideas.  Personally, I think I’ll try a basic recipe with a twist…BACON!
