Eggs are quick to prepare, packed with quality fats, and the perfect delivery system for various sauces and condiments.

Yesterday I woke to the sound of my son asking for bread. Since we don't normally have bread in the house it meant he wanted me to bake a loaf of bread. When my little foodie has a request, it's not always easy to get out of it. So, I rummaged through my book of recipes and deciding to whip up a batch of sticky buns. Coincidentally, sticky buns are a celebratory spring dish and since the equinox was just a day away, it felt like the perfect time to bake up these delicious treats.
