Honey! Who doesn’t love honey? Well, I guess if you’re allergic or are afraid of gaining weight, you might not have a bottle or two of good honey in your home. I, on the other hand, love this golden treat that is sweet and delicious on food, inside food, or in my tea! Since I drink a lot of tea, it comes to me as a no-brainer to have some honey on hand and yes I will squeeze a little in my pizza dough (try it!). Since I was little my go to breakfast was a slice of bread with butter and honey with a hot cup of chamomile tea on the side. Yummy-yum-yum! My mother would also beat a fresh egg and honey together till it was really foamy and we would drink it before we left for school. You might be thinking ‘Ew fresh egg and honey?!’ but I’m telling you it’s another delicious treat you should try at least once! Maybe it’s just a European thing, but thank I love my sweet-golden-yummy-sticky honey!
