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 >

Spinach, Kale, and Steak Torte Recipe >

On 04.28.2016 by Angie McGowan

About two years ago, after years of struggling with my weight, I decided to make a real change in mine and my family's diet. I decided it was time to start cooking breakfasts, lunches, and dinners in a more traditional fashion. That meant almost eliminating our sandwich routines, french fry addictions, and after dinner sweet treats. I also really cut back on all those unnecessary processed carbs like breads and crackers and replaced them with healthy carbs like fresh fruits and vegetables. Over the years, I’ve continued to make other changes, too. I’ve limited sugar, cut down on soybean oil (which I’ve realized is found in just about everything, even the body oil I was using!) and limited dairy. I’ve tried to model our diet and Read More >

Chorizo and Potato Hash Eggs Benedict with Cilantro Hollandaise >

On 04.12.2016 by Laura Davidson

Four years ago, during my second week of professional culinary school, I made my very first eggs Benedict from scratch. I arrived to my classroom early and anxiously looked at the white board to see our menu for the day. The famous, sweat-inducing word appeared before me: Hollandaise sauce. Or, as my chef instructor preferred to call it, “the sauce that smells fear…”. Traditionally, Hollandaise sauce is served with eggs Benedict, a classic American breakfast consisting of toasted English muffin halves topped with Canadian ham or bacon, runny poached eggs, and Hollandaise sauce. Hollandaise sauce is made from raw egg yolks, butter, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and salt. For that reason alone, Davidson’s Safest Choice® Pasteurized Eggs are essential for this recipe. Not only are Read More >

Spinach and Ham Sweet Potato Hash >

On 03.24.2016 by Matt Ivan

With Easter being the big food holiday in March, you may find yourself with a plethora of leftover ham—if you’re like me, you will for sure. My friends, family, and I make it a point to enjoy epic, elaborate meals that somehow always provide more food than we need. Good thing we all love leftovers too! You look in the fridge and see a large container of leftover bone-in ham plus extra sweet potatoes you tried to fit into the pan, but somehow that five pound bag doesn’t always fit. Naturally you should make spinach and ham sweet potato hash. All you need is a few more ingredients, including Davidson’s Safest Choice® Pasteurized Eggs, for a hearty Easter themed brunch recipe. It’s ideal for feeding Read More >

On 03.08.2016 by Chantel Arsenault

Looking to jumpstart healthy eating? Why not start your day with light and healthy baked huevos rancheros—MyPlate style? The USDA resource called MyPlate tells us that everything we eat matters. The secret to good healthy eating? “Focus on variety, amount, and nutrition,” advises the USDA.

National Nutrition Month® – Making the Most of Breakfast >

On 03.03.2016 by Molly Bray Yunek

March is National Nutrition Month®, which makes this a perfect time to review some of the best recommendations for achieving a healthy diet. There is a lot of confusing and conflicting information when it comes to improving our eating habits. With new diet trends that focus on a “free-from” platform, it may seem that eating healthy is becoming increasingly complicated. We are being told to select foods that are free-from gluten and free-from dairy. There are dozens of other elements misleadingly being labeled as dangerous for our health. U.S. adults not getting enough fruits and veggies Let us take this opportunity during National Nutrition Month® to step back and practice the fundamentals of healthy eating. Before we remove anything from our diet, let’s start with Read More >

Baked Scotch Eggs with Guacamole >

On 02.17.2016 by Lindsay Livingston, RD

As a Registered Dietitian, I’m constantly touting the benefits of starting your day with a healthy breakfast. I’ve always been a breakfast lover and considering the fact that I pretty much HAVE to eat something within 15 minutes of waking up, I always find it somewhat baffling that there are people out there who don’t really care about breakfast. (Cough…my husband…cough). Say what?! Luckily for me, my 15-month-old son has definitely inherited my love of breakfast. In fact, his love is so strong that if he decides he wants breakfast and you don’t have it ready in about 30 seconds, a total meltdown will inevitably ensue. So, I do my best to plan ahead and make sure I have breakfast options cooked and ready in Read More >
