How to Make Perfectly Fried Eggs

Spring is here and the eggs are abundant. We have eggs coming out of our ears!  So many eggs, that I find myself giving away cartons to friends and family.  One of my favorite, easy and simple ways to enjoy some of those eggs is to fry them up.  I love fried eggs.  Over medium is my favorite preparation.  I usually don’t give much thought to frying eggs, but today, I thought I’d share just how I make fried eggs.  It’s super simple and fun, plus delicious!

Spring’s Promises Arrive

I’ve always loved birds. The intrigue and the lure of their world has always called to me, even in my dreams. As a little girl, I can remember having the most amazing dreams about flying. I was just high enough that when I would soar over the crowds, no one could reach me with their upward stretching arms. Now as part of spring’s promises, it’s hard to miss their singing. Because their songs start early, perched in the bushes and tree outside my bedroom window. Even more, I like to think that the birds are announcing spring’s arrival, just as regal trumpets would announce the arrival of royalty.

Bake It: Tilly’s Tornado Cake

One of my favorite things about social media is learning about new recipes. A couple of months ago, a recipe for something called a Tornado Cake, came across my feed. As I researched it further, I discovered that there are so many different versions and edits to this recipe. As I read over the recipes, I realized that they were all essentially the same. Certainly, the cake sounded SO delicious that I was practically drooling. I had to make it!
