The holiday season is in full swing—my favorite time of the year! It’s a period full of quality time with friends and family, along with celebrations galore. And where there’s celebration, there’s a bit of decadence. And where there’s decadence, there better be crème brûlée!

Now that Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is around the corner, I can totally relish the fact that fall is in full bloom. Here in San Diego, it doesn’t cool off and feel like autumn until November. We still haven’t given up our flip flops, but we just wear them AND our sweaters!
This is also the time of the year where I make homemade pumpkin purée. I always have a stash of pumpkin goodness in the freezer. I like to sneak pumpkin into everything I make: soups, chili, and even pancakes!
My pumpkin spice mug cake only needs 2 tablespoons of pumpkin purée. A mug cake is a super easy and quick way to enjoy a warm and fluffy cake inRead More >

Macaroni and cheese—it’s an American staple. Who doesn’t love mac and cheese, right? There are so many ways to make it and so many add-in possibilities. It might be the perfect food, because it’s completely customizable. It starts with a stove top or baked version. Today we’re exploring a classic version of baked macaroni and cheese. It’s the perfect accompaniment to most meals or, if you’re like me, perfect on its own.

Having worked as a baker for a dessert food truck, I have a strong affinity for cupcakes. I’ve made thousands upon thousands of them. They might have started as a food trend but, in my humble opinion, they’re here to stay.
These pumpkin cupcakes with marshmallow frosting and caramel drizzle are the perfect portable, festive, fall dessert. Inspired by classic sweet potato casserole with marshmallows, the pumpkin cupcakes are topped with a light and fluffy marshmallow frosting and finished with a light drizzle of homemade caramel (or store-bought caramel if you are short on time!).
Similar to homemade meringue, the marshmallow frosting is made with just a handful of ingredients: Davidson’s Safest Choice® pasteurized egg whites, fine granulatedRead More >
Vegetarians come in many varieties. Some incorporate dairy and eggs into their diets. Ovo-vegetarians eat eggs but not dairy. Vegans, on the other hand, typically follow a plant-based diet that excludes all animal products. But egg-eating vegans? For some, eggs are an important addition to a stricter vegan diet. In fact, CNN recently reported that more and more vegans are eating eggs to help round out their diets with essential nutrients.Eggs and nutrition
According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, diets that do not include eggs, fish, or a whole lot of algae are typically low in needed omega-3 fatty acids. Vegetarian diets also have a lower availability of iron, and can sometimes lack vitamins D and B-12. Davidson’s Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs are a great source of each of these importantRead More >

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 >
