Kristin @ With Milk & Sugar {Guest Post}

Hi! I'm Kristin and I blog over at With Milk & Sugar, where I share my adventures in crafting, decorating ideas, life with my husband in San Diego, my love of travel and of course, my favorite recipes.
I like to keep things simple and try for an 80/20 rule for healthy eating, but I have a weakness for sweets and a serious obsession with cupcakes. Baking, decorating and eating them. 
But today I'm sharing something definitely not sweet.  In fact these little bites of goodness have quite the kick. That's right we're talking deviled eggs. 
The right deviled egg recipe can turn you into near celebrity status in one perfectly planned summer picnic.  Ok, maybe that's an exaggeration. But deviled eggs, when done right, are a crowd-pleaser. When wrong, well... you're more likely to become infamous.
The way I see it, there are three types of deviled eggs.
You've got your tangy, vinegar-y egg. 
The spicy, mustard-y egg. 
And then there's the sweet relish egg. Yuck! Let's just say, that's not my favorite. 
My recipe today is for the spicy, make you go "whoa", mustard deviled egg.  The secret? Ground mustard powder.  And A LOT of it.
Devilishly Deviled Eggs 
(makes 24)
Ingredients
1 dozen eggs 
1/4 c sour cream 
3 T mayonnaise 
1-2 T (Tablespoons) ground mustard powder 
salt to taste 
paprika for garnish 

Directions
1.  Hard boil eggs.  Add baking soda to the water to make the eggs easier to peel.  Allow eggs to cool in a cold water bath and then peel eggs and slice in half long ways.  Remove the yolks and place in a bowl. 
2.  Add source cream, mayonnaise and ground mustard powder to the yolks and mix until blended. Ground mustard powder is much more potent than prepared mustard, even compared to spicy dijon types.  So add at your own risk.  My husband likes them with lot's of mustard, but you may want to try it and add more as you go.  Add salt if you'd like. 
3. Add yolk mixture to the egg halves and sprinkle with paprika.  Serve to hungry people and enjoy!
Thanks Stephanie for having me! {Isn't she just the sweetest?}
