Kale, Bacon, and Cheese Strata Recipe: A Make-Ahead Lifesaver! >

On 08.22.2016 by Nam Nguyen

It’s back-to-school time—can you believe it? Where has the summer gone? And as someone who also works in education, I’m double bracing myself for the full flurry of classes being back in session. If you’re like me and love breakfast, it can be tough this time of year to take the time to enjoy a delicious meal to start the day. That snooze button on your alarm can be so tempting and before you know it, you are in a mad flurry running out the door while hoping that you’re at least wearing matching socks. That is why prep-ahead meals are a lifesaver in my home. With just a small bit of planning and assembly the night before, you can have a scrumptious, Sunday brunch-worthy Read More >

Egg In A Hole Breakfast Sandwich >

On 08.15.2016 by Lindsay Livingston, RD

I’m sharing the fourth recipe in a delicious series! So far we've covered protein-packed snacks with these baked scotch eggs, veggies for breakfast with this  spring breakfast salad (would be delicious with your fav summer veggies) and a summertime dessert with this strawberry cookies and cream ice cream (no ice cream maker required!) Today we're talking about back-to-school breakfast ideas. Even though I don’t yet have a kid in school, I know how hard it is to get back into a morning routine once school starts up again. Since breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, I hate when I hear about people skipping it this time of year because they feel like their mornings are too busy. So I thought I’d help you out a Read More >

Raspberry Almond Olive Oil Scones >

On 08.12.2016 by Laura Basher

Another summer vacation has come and gone. No more sleeping in, lazy mornings, or staying in pajamas ’til noon. And not just for the kids, but for me, too! With school back on the horizon, I am quietly bracing myself for the morning rush, the crazy carpool schedules, and the homework battles. But, at the same time, I am excited for my baby who is now entering middle school, my middle child who will rule the school as an 8th grader, and my eldest who is ready to hunker down with his sophomore year in high school. It’s going to be a great year! Back-to-school also means meal prep, and not just lunch boxes. There’s getting dinner ready among the chaos of after school activities. Read More >

Strawberry Rhubarb Ice Cream Recipe >

On 07.15.2016 by Kelsey Banfield

There is something about the strawberry and rhubarb flavor combination that screams summer to me. The tart rhubarb and extra sweet strawberries complement each other so perfectly. One can easily tell that the sweet flavor isn't from granulated sugar, it is a natural sweetness that can only be produced by warm fruit that has enjoyed a long spring growing in the sunshine. This ice cream opened the summer season for us last week. We returned from our annual Cooperstown 4th of July celebration and I set straight to work making it. I even made our homemade ice cream activities a little easier on us this year because I used our favorite Davidson’s Safest Choice®  eggs. They are pasteurized in an all-natural warm water bath to eliminate Read More >

Red Velvet Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Recipe >

On 07.13.2016 by Jocelyn Delk Adams

I have a serious jones for red velvet cake. In fact, it ended up being on the cover of my first cookbook so you know I adore it. My love for all things red velvet had to end up in an ice cream flavor at some point. Thanks to Davidson's Safest Choice®, you will now be able to experience the most sensational and delicious ice cream red velvet style. This recipe starts with building a rich custard base. Because Davidson's Safest Choice® eggs are pasteurized, this recipe is beyond safe to consume and even have the kids help with, because there's no risk of Salmonella. These eggs are hormone free, antibiotic free, and vegetarian-fed which means you can just have fun with your family instead Read More >

Toasted Marshmallow Frozen Custard Recipe >

On 06.21.2016 by Angie McGowan

Summer is my favorite season. There’s so much fun to have and so many things to do. One of my favorite things we’ve been doing for years now is our weekend beach trips. We live very close to Daytona, so we get to drive on the beach. I’ll pack a picnic lunch and we’ll spend the afternoon on the beach. It’s so much fun and so easy because you have your car right there. When we’re headed home we always stop at the same frozen custard shop. It’s my favorite and the perfect way to end a fun filled beach day. They have so many different flavors, but I love the simple flavors like vanilla the best. Then I can add any topping I’m in the Read More >

Roasted Berries Ice Cream >

On 06.17.2016 by Nam Nguyen

We are mere days away from summer…and you know what that means?? Sunny days, beautiful weather, shorts and flip flops all day long, and ice cream 24-7. Oh yes, ICE CREAM! And when ice cream is homemade—it’s even better. So dust off those fantastic churning machines and let’s get to work! Now I’ll be the first to admit, every time I think about making ice cream, I always stop and ask myself—is it worth the effort? Why not just go out and grab a pint? But then I remember how ridiculously easy it is to whip up a batch, particularly when you have a trusty ice cream maker that does all the churning work for you. Added bonus? You know every ingredient that goes in Read More >

Strawberry Cookies and Cream Ice Cream >

On 06.15.2016 by Lindsay Livingston, RD

Summer is here and so is the heat. If you’re looking for an easy treat you can make at home for the hot summer months, homemade ice cream is always a winner in my opinion. Today I’m sharing a simple recipe for Strawberry Cookies and Cream Ice Cream with you. Added bonus- I chose to make a recipe that didn’t require an ice cream maker so anyone can make it! No special equipment needed. The trick to making ice cream without an ice cream maker is whipping the cream yourself to help infuse air into the recipe. The trick to making ice cream extra creamy, in my opinion, is adding egg yolks. The benefit of using Davidson's pasteurized eggs is that you can mix the yolks right Read More >

Mirza Ghassemi (Persian Eggs with Eggplant, Turmeric, and Tomatoes) >

On 05.19.2016 by Laura Basher

I spend a lot of time learning as much as I can about my Persian background. You see, my mother is Iranian and my father is American and I have lived most of my life in the U.S.  And since I married an Iranian, well, I have a lot to learn. Persian food and Persian culture, the real Persian culture without religion mixed in, is quite extraordinary and beautiful. Both include vibrant colors and robust flavors. We love our herbs and our dishes are not heavily spiced or spicy like other cultures. Everything melds together to create a very flavorful dish. Stews, basmati rice, and kabobs—we have quite a variety of meals to share with the world.  I enjoy discovering them, cooking them for my Read More >
