I am a big believer in eggs.
Someday, I'd love a backyard with a little chicken coop, where I could gather my own fresh eggs from my clucky ladies and make a cozy breakfast for little children.
Soft-boiled eggs are one of my favorite breakfast foods.
They bring me back to my childhood, when our parents would peel our eggs for us, since our unweathered little fingers couldn't handle the heat.
They bring me back to Germany and Austria, where a proper breakfast includes a soft-boiled egg, served with The Best Coffee in the World, a fresh roll, cold cuts, and jam.
And they bring me back to every adult snow day I've had, when the slow morning start inevitably carries me to a pot of boiling water, a sunny kitchen seat, and my favorite Delft egg cup.
Promise me you'll enjoy some soon. (Just be sure to buy your eggs as humane as possible.)
