Do holiday baking, eggnog-making, casseroles, entrees, and festive desserts leave you with an odd number of egg yolks or egg whites? Good news! You can store your yolks or whites and put them to use in other recipes. Yolks should be stored in an airtight container, refrigerated, and used within two days. Raw egg whites will keep a little longer than yolks in the fridge, and up to a year in the freezer. It is not recommended to freeze egg yolks.
Here are some ideas for using extra egg yolks or extra egg whites.Using extra egg yolks

If you are among the one in five Americans aiming to eat gluten-free, perhaps you’ve dabbled in gluten-free baking. You may already know it can be challenging to replicate the texture and pleasure of traditional baked goods when you eliminate gluten from your baking recipes.
The egg, a naturally gluten-free ingredient, can be a gluten-free lifesaver in your kitchen.
Here’s why: gluten is a protein. In the words of the American Egg Board, gluten “entraps and holds air bubbles. A leavening agent causes the gluten network to expand; the heat causes the bubbles to rise, and then the structure sets, forming a combination of expansion, elasticity and rigidity.”Egg protein complements gluten-free flour
Depending on the variety, gluten levels in traditional wheat flours vary from pastry flour (low) to bread flourRead More >

I have to admit. I’m not a huge breakfast person. Never have been and probably never will. Usually it’s just a grab something on the go, just to tide me over until I can get to the much preferred lunch and dinner (and then of course my favorite course: dessert).
But once in a while, I get motivated to actually make something epic for breakfast.
Let’s see if this scenario happens to anyone else. You’re excited to get your breakfast on, only to go into the fridge and find like just a few eggs left? Ugh. The worst. My breakfast hopes and dreams… crushed.
Have no fear. A legit breakfast can still be salvaged with thisRead More >
This is the time of year that teachers like me loathe. The countdown to the upcoming school year is creeping closer and closer. The end is officially near. This year it’s going to be extra hard to go back to school… our little baby girl was born July 1st and I’ve been so lucky to be able to spend these past two months with her all day, every day.
And instead of getting all sad and bummed out about the whole having to drop her off at the babysitter thing, I’m bringing you a recipe that reminds me of one of my favorite days I spent with Asheley and my little love bug.

Today is National Cheesecake Day, and I am pleased to announce the release of another SafeEggs TV video! The second release from the “Eggs Up!” series featuring yours truly will deliver an instructional video for Cheesecake Batter Parfaits utilizing Davidson’s Safest Choice pasteurized shell eggs. As I follow trends and explore new recipes to feature our pasteurized eggs, the utilization of batters is a timely topic. The movement to smaller desserts and at times duets or trios of desserts all play into the application of the Cheesecake Batter Parfaits. Regardless, if you are at home or in the restaurant, the ability to utilize it in various quantities and applications is a sure benefit. If you have ever been warned about eating raw cookie dough or cakeRead More >
I’ll fully admit I didn’t get the point of this mason jar salad trend until recently. It just seemed so stupid to me as I sat there wondering why you’d shove all the ingredients of a salad into a jar and how you’d get your fork all the way to the bottom to eat it! Then I realized it’s the whole convenience factor for portability and even more important, an excellent way to keep the dressing from turning the lettuce soggy or requiring an extra container to carry it in to avoid that. Hindsight is 20/20 I guess because now I realize the whole concept is actually kind of genius.
My husband has a Caesar salad addiction. I’m not even exaggerating when I sayRead More >
