Thanks to Laura Childs' for letting us use a recipe from her latest Cackleberry Club Mystery - Bedeviled Eggs.

In Bedeviled Eggs, Suzanne, the main character, is up to a new adventure with her friends and co-workers Petra and Toni. Besides serving really good food at their restaurant, the Cackleberry Club, they also sponsor book and knitting clubs. This time they're also offering something similar to speed dating. Throw in a couple of murders and a historic quilt trail, and you'll find there's never a dull moment at the Cackleberry Club.
