Variety of eggs

How do you like your eggs?

With so many egg options, how are you supposed to know which ones you like best, how to make them, or (at the very least) what to order at your favorite breakfast joint? We have put together a guide to all things egg so that you can enjoy your protein packed, make-it-or-break-it breakfast essential at any time of the day.

Hard Boiled

A hard boiled egg isn’t just necessary for Easter Deviled Eggs (though delicious), you can enjoy them by themselves for breakfast, crushed in a salad, or in a sandwich. A hard boiled egg is cooked in a rolling boil in its shell to create a fully cooked (hard) yolk.


Scrambled eggs, though made in a variety of ways, are the most beloved of all the egg cooking varieties. To make the perfect scrambled eggs, heat a pan over medium-high heat, add 1 tbs. of butter per egg and continually mix the mixture until you have reached a soft scramble. Add a splash of milk and cheese or seasoning, mix and serve.

Sunny Side Up

Say good morning to the sun with a sunny side up egg. In our opinion, sunny side up eggs are best paired with cubed potatoes or over toast so that the yolk can run and combine all of the breakfast flavors.

Over Easy

Over easy eggs are essential a sunny side up turned upside down. These are great to enjoy on burgers or really anything that requires the buttery taste of the egg white and the runny goodness of the yolk. Note: do be sure to use a non-stick pan. The flip can be extremely tricky.


A poached egg is often served in the most eggtastic way with a Hollandaise sauce. To create egg-filled dish, start with the poached egg. bring 4-5 inches of water to a simmer, add a dash of vinegar, and swirl the water just before adding the egg. Cook the egg for 8-10 minutes until the white have solidified and the yolk is still runny. In the meantime, make the Hollandaise sauce by whisking the yolks, lemon juice and water over very low heat. Then add butter slowly until sauce has come together. Drizzle the Hollandaise sauce over your perfectly poached eggs for a breakfast of champions.

April Produce Guide

April Produce Guide

April showers bring extremely delicious and fresh produce items. For the most optimal and fresh produce of the month, shop our April produce guide. Throughout the month, we recommend eating fresh or cooking with strawberries, avocado, beets and carrots.


Perfectly sweet strawberries don’t even need a chocolate drizzle (however, we certainly don’t judge if you decide to do that with your fresh strawberries). Buy these perfect berries in bulk and make and freeze jam to use for the rest of the year, make a strawberry crisp, or simply eat them as is.


The creamy avocado is the best alternative to butter you can find, especially when it’s in season. Try spreading on toast, making brownies, or tossing in an avocado salad for optimal enjoyment.


Beets- what more can we say? They are great canned, but even better fresh! You can enjoy these as hummus, in hummus, in a salad, or juiced (as well as hundreds of other amazing ways to enjoy beets). P.S. they make excellent natural dye for shirts and Easter eggs.


Carrots are ideal for nearly every meal that includes a mirepoix as well as all on their own. Hold on to the last chill of the fading winter or

Strawberry Crisp

Full Circle Strawberry Crisp

It’s the season for perfectly sweet strawberries and there’s no better way to use them than in dessert. This recipe is a single serving, but don’t feel like you can’t double, triple, or even quadruple the recipe to share with your friends and family.


1 cub strawberries

2 tbs. sugar

1 tbs. lemon juice

1 cup Full Circle oats

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 tbs. butter, softened


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Over medium high heat, mix strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer for 10-15 minutes until the strawberries have reduced and thickened.

While the strawberries are reducing, mix oats, butter, and brown sugar until well combined.

Pour the strawberries into a seasoned cast iron pan and top with oat mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes until oat topping has browned. We personally recommend enjoying with ice cream.
