Pumpkin Spice Mug Cake >

On 11.14.2016 by Laura Basher

Now that Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is around the corner, I can totally relish the fact that fall is in full bloom. Here in San Diego, it doesn’t cool off and feel like autumn until November. We still haven’t given up our flip flops, but we just wear them AND our sweaters! This is also the time of the year where I make homemade pumpkin purée. I always have a stash of pumpkin goodness in the freezer. I like to sneak pumpkin into everything I make: soups, chili, and even pancakes! My pumpkin spice mug cake only needs 2 tablespoons of pumpkin purée. A mug cake is a super easy and quick way to enjoy a warm and fluffy cake in minutes. The baking 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 >

Stay Fuller Longer with Eggs and Other Satiety-Boosting Foods >

On 04.20.2016 by Molly Bray Yunek

The primary purpose of food is to satisfy hunger, provide energy, and supply our bodies with essential nutrients. Although we also choose what we eat based on taste and personal preferences, it is important to have a strong foundation of satiety-boosting and nutrient packed foods in our daily diets. What is a satiety-boosting food? Satiety-boosting foods are ones that are rich in fiber, healthy fats, and protein. They are digested slower, thus keeping us fuller for longer. On the other hand, foods high in refined carbohydrates, such as white bread and sugar-sweetened beverages, offer very little satiety and often lead to overeating. To build your foundation of satiety-boosting foods, check out these super-filling options. Pulses, avocados, and nuts increase satiety Pulses—also known as beans—are a Read More >

Southwest Omelette Breakfast Wontons >

On 10.12.2015 by Chris Cockren

I have to admit. I'm not a huge breakfast person. Never have been and probably never will. Usually it's just a grab something on the go, just to tide me over until I can get to the much preferred lunch and dinner (and then of course my favorite course: dessert). But once in a while, I get motivated to actually make something epic for breakfast. Let's see if this scenario happens to anyone else. You're excited to get your breakfast on, only to go into the fridge and find like just a few eggs left? Ugh. The worst. My breakfast hopes and dreams... crushed. Have no fear.  A legit breakfast can still be salvaged with this solution.  Southwest Omelette Breakfast Wontons. Those few eggs can go Read More >

Eggs: Safe from Avian Flu? >

On 05.04.2015 by Chantel Arsenault

Do news reports about outbreaks of avian flu or “bird flu” have you wondering? Recent news of avian flu findings in North America began appearing in December, 2014.  According to Agri-Pulse (April 23, 2015), “The H5N2 strain of avian influenza was first confirmed in January in the Pacific Northwest and has since spread to the Midwest, and recently to Iowa, the nation’s top egg-producing state.” Avian flu was also confirmed to have spread to Nebraska. On May 14, Nebraska Governor, Pete Ricketts, declared a state of emergency due to the avian flu outbreak, joining Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa as states that have taken the same action so far. As many as 47 million birds have been affected by the virus, and egg prices continue to Read More >

Breakfast Pizza for National Pizza Week >

On 01.13.2011 by Chantel Arsenault

This week, the second week in January 2011 is National Pizza Week. Having pizza week in January makes sense because three out of the top 10 weeks of pizza consumption occur this month. With more pizza being consumed Super Bowl week than any other week of the year. I have been interested in trying eggs on my pizza for awhile now. Since I have yet to find a restaurant near my Chicago neighborhood that makes a version of Pizza alla Bismark I did some searching online for a recipe. Smitten Kitchen's breakfast pizza was my inspiration. As my pictures show my recipe varied and due to the lack of a stand mixer my crust was a bit more rustic, but still delicious.
