When Ben Franklin said, “an ounce a prevention is worth a pound of cure,” he may not have been thinking specifically about foodborne illness, but it still applies. Old Ben’s famous saying is especially relevant since it’s National Food Safety Month.
Salmonella is the #1 bacteria-related foodborne illness, and there are about 1.4 million cases in the U.S. each year, according to the CDC. And 4 out of every 5 cases of Salmonella enteritidis are caused by raw or undercooked eggs.
Egg pasteurization destroys bacteria and viruses, but the majority of eggs in your grocery store are not pasteurized. Remember 2010? That year, 500 million fresh eggs were recalled due to Salmonella. Pasteurized eggs were the safest option then—and now.
Safe eggs for every recipe
Did you know that undercooked eggs in some favorite recipes—like sunny-side up or poached eggs—can causeRead More >

We are back in the weeknight swing and I’m working on some new dinner recipes to add to my current repertoire. Over the summer we got into two dishes: zoodles and shakshuka. Both are simple to make and taste delicious. Until now, I’ve been serving them separately, but this week I decided to combine them into one easy dish, eggs with zoodles. My plan was to bake the eggs in the tomatoes and serve them over zoodles for an easy, healthy dinner.
Procuring the ingredients was easy. And, while I was doing so, I picked up some Davidson’s Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs. They are pasteurized in an all-natural warm water bath to eliminate the risk of Salmonella. Knowing this eases my mind when it comes to serving eggs to myRead More >
Gasp, the holidays are coming up and they’ll be here, along with house guests, before we know it. It’s a great idea to have a few breakfast and brunch recipes in your cooking arsenal that can feed a crowd and be made ahead of time. Who wants to wake up hours before everyone else to prep meals? Am I right?
This strata is vegetarian. It’s packed full of egg, spinach, and cheesy goodness. You can, however, appease your carnivore taste buds by adding some crispy prosciutto or bacon bits to the top. Because bacon.
Make this cheesy spinach and strata recipe the night before, pop it in the fridge and then into the oven the followingRead More >
This September we are celebrating National Family Meals Month™. Family life can be hectic and getting everyone to sit down around the table to enjoy a meal together might not always be an option. But research has shown that just a few meals per week shared between parents and their children can have several health benefits. Kids and teens who share meals with their families three or more times per week are less likely to be overweight, more likely to eat healthier foods, and show more respect for their families.
Quick and easy meal ideas
We understand time can be limited during the week. Here are a few quick and easy skillet meals that everyone in the family will love. Each is ready in less than 30 minutes and only requires one pan so clean up is aRead More >
It’s September – which means it’s back to school time!
My kids have been back for a few weeks now and are starting to get back into the routine. The routine of go, go, go that is. With all the rushing around in the mornings, after school activities, and homework we don’t have a lot of time to make big dinners or from-scratch breakfasts.
Today, I’ve got a great recipe for a bacon and eggs breakfast pizza that comes together in just a few minutes and is perfect for those nights when you’re craving breakfast for dinner. Even better, the leftovers are just as yummy heated up for a quick breakfast the next morning.
Growing up, it was always a reason to celebrate when mom would announce we were having breakfast for dinner (usually because that meantRead More >
September marks the official start of fall. While I’m a bit sad to see summer weather and weekly barbecues go away, an exciting new chapter of seasonal recipes is upon us. In-season harvest flavors such as apples, cranberries, pears, sweet potatoes, and of course pumpkin are coming.

It’s a simple recipe that uses mostly common pantry ingredients and takes less than 30 minutes to make, including baking time. Ideal for a weekend brunch, holidays, or even an easy comforting weekday breakfast.

Pregnancy is a time when you are keenly aware of caring for your health. And during this special time, food safety is particularly important, because your immune system may not be as strong as usual. Both mom and baby are at heightened susceptibility to foodborne illness.Pregnant moms at risk
In fact, 1 in 7 people who contracts the foodborne illness called Listeriosis (caused by Listeria monocytogenes bacteria) is a pregnant woman, according to the CDC. This serious illness can result in miscarriage. Unpasteurized milk and soft cheese made from unpasteurized milk are major sources. Lunch meats, hot dogs, and smoked seafood can also be sources. Listeria grows even under refrigeration, so even processed meats, if contaminated, can be a problem if stored tooRead More >
