Pumpkin Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting and Caramel Drizzle Recipe >

On 10.24.2016 by Laura Davidson

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 granulated sugar, cream of tartar, salt, and pure Read More >

An Egg-cellent Addition to a Vegan Diet >

On 10.21.2016 by Chantel Arsenault

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 Read More >

Egg Safety for National Food Safety Month >

On 09.27.2016 by Chantel Arsenault

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 Read More >

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 >

Gasp, the holidays are coming up and they'll be here, along with house guests, before we know it.

You can, however, appease your carnivore taste buds by adding some crispy prosciutto or bacon bits to the top. Because bacon.

On 09.01.2016 by Sue Grossbauer, RD

Pregnancy is a time when you are keenly aware of caring for your health. And during this special time, food safety is particularly important, because your immune system may not be as strong as usual. Both mom and baby are at heightened susceptibility to foodborne illness. Pregnant moms at risk In fact, 1 in 7 people who contracts the foodborne illness called Listeriosis (caused by Listeria monocytogenes bacteria) is a pregnant woman, according to the CDC. This serious illness can result in miscarriage. Unpasteurized milk and soft cheese made from unpasteurized milk are major sources. Lunch meats, hot dogs, and smoked seafood can also be sources. Listeria grows even under refrigeration, so even processed meats, if contaminated, can be a problem if stored too long. Read More >
