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 schoolRead More >
This year Davidson’s Safest Choice® attended the International Food Bloggers Convention (IFBC) in Sacramento, California. If you were there, you may remember us from the Taste of Sacramento Culinary Fair, Expo, and Gift Suite held on Friday, July 29.

The fair was a huge success! We had the opportunity to meet some of our current customers as well as some new egg enthusiasts. If you stopped by our table you had the chance to sample our yummy cheesecake batter parfait–made safe with our pasteurized eggs.
If you recall, our parfait had a distinct creaminess toRead More >

Everyone knows that raw eggs can be a vehicle for dangerous bacteria such as Salmonella enteritidis. But do you know how to protect yourself from the risks of foodborne illness?
A simple egg safety checkup can give you the answers. Just ask yourself these questions:
- After you crack an egg, do you cook it to a safe temperature of 160°F?
- Do you wash your hands so that they won’t spread any Salmonella to other foods and surfaces in your kitchen?
- Do you use Davidson’s™ pasteurized eggs? If you do, you do NOT need to follow #1 and #2.

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 the risk ofRead More >
