Eggs with Zoodles Recipe >

On 09.23.2016 by Kelsey Banfield

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 Read More >

Make Ahead Cheesy Spinach Strata Recipe >

On 09.20.2016 by Paula Jones

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 following morning. It makes a generous 8 servings. I choose Read More >

September is National Family Meals Month™ >

On 09.16.2016 by Molly Bray Yunek

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 Read More >

Bacon and Eggs Breakfast Pizza Recipe >

On 09.16.2016 by Jamie Sanders

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 Read More >

Cranberry Orange Corn Muffins Recipe >

On 09.15.2016 by Matt Ivan

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. These cranberry orange corn muffins feature some of my favorite fall flavors in a unique breakfast treat that’s full of flavor and texture, with a large amount of cornmeal adding distinct crunch throughout. 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. When I was growing up, the fall season was one of Read More >

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 >
