Good Morning Sunshine Eggs

I’ve gotten into the habit of addressing my loved ones with “Good Morning Sunshine” and following it with a wonderful breakfast to start the day…usually eggs. If you never really thought about Eggs you should. A good egg, organic, free range, natural it’s worth the money.

Is she REALLY blogging about how to a basic egg? YES! I cooked some eggs for my boyfriend a couple of weeks ago and you’d think he died and gone to heaven. Literally, he’s been talking about these eggs for WEEKS! “You need to blog about your eggs…I’m serious!” If you can, splurge a bit and purchase the european butter. There is distinct difference in flavor and the eggs are a great place to showcase this fantastic butter.

The best description I can think of is rich, creamy, fluffy, and decadent also know as GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE EGGS 🙂

If you love glazed carrots, but you never master the art of the perfect sugar or honey ration to water, lemon-lime soda is the answer! Take a peek at this gourmet recipe made easy and leave your comments! Enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 lbs. carrots, sliced

12 oz. lemon-lime soda

Uncover the pan and continue to cook until the carrots are tender and the liquid is almost evaporated.  Add the butter stir until melted and add seasons.  Salt and pepper to taste.
