Eggs-ellent Eggs.

So, just recently I was looking up different ways to cook eggs. I've been trying to put them back into my diet more frequently because 1/they're DELICIOUS and 2/they work with pretty much anything. In my searching, I came across this adorable infographic by Culinaut. How cute is this? All types of eggs and ways to cook, see below:

I'm hoping that all of you are buying organic, free range eggs whenever possible, because as we all know: what is better for the chicken, is better for the human! Plus, they are oh-so-cute and treating animals with respect is always important.

As for cooking: what do you prefer? I personally love two over-easy eggs on toast with truffle salt. Mmmm! Poached is my second favorite, but I'm just terrible at making them. Anyone have any tips? I always end up with broken yolks, which are no fun. Can't get enough? I made a little collage of my favorite eggy-goodies below. Bon appetit!

1. Sweet stamps from The Small Object in brand new packaging! Available in our online shop. $6 - $24.

2. Kinder Eggs! I spent a bit of my childhood in England and was lucky enough to experience these chocolate eggs with little toys inside. They are actually banned in the US, however, "because it contains a "non-nutritive object embedded in it [FDA]." Okay...We'll get our European friends to send us some.

3. I love this sleek, classy ceramic egg crate from Crate & Barrel. Eggs are technically supposed to be stored at room temperature, so one of these on your counter would be pretty and functional! $6.95

4. Alas, my favorite of the bunch: gorgeous Mid-Century Modern stackable egg cups from French Attic Finds on Etsy. Beautiful! $14 for 4.
