Inspiration and Ideas

These Delicious, Nourishing Egg Recipes Are Great Any Time of Day
Crack open an egg and all sorts of magic can happen. The secret to these delicious sleights of hand is heat -- flash in the pan, low and slow, or somewhere in between. Gather your favorite spring ingredients, turn on a flame, and conjure a satisfying meal at any time of day.

Cinnamon Rolls

Fragrant with cinnamon and enriched with a cream-cheese glaze, these morning buns make an unforgettable breakfast. Mashed potato is the secret behind their light texture, while bread flour provides structure and chew. It might be tempting to enjoy the rolls straight out of the oven, but be sure to let them rest at least 20 minutes before serving--this completes the cooking process and yields tender and airy, not gummy, buns.
