Halloween Happy Hour >

On 10.31.2010 by Chantel Arsenault

Happy Halloween! Tonight the spirits get spooky as I try the Food Network's Candy Corn Cordials, with some slight variations. I found blood red orange candy corn to make it extra gory. And, I used Safest Choice pasteurized eggs to eliminate the apprehension of using a raw egg white. The drink ending up being pretty sweet, so don't worry if you can't infuse your vodka for the full 3 hours. Also, while the blood orange candy corn tasted great, it turned the drink more of a pink-orange than the festive color I was hoping for. Cheers to a spooky and safe Halloween everyone!   Candy Corn Cordials (from foodnetwork.com) Ingredients For the infused vodka: 1/2 cup candy corn 1 1/2 cups vodka For the cordials: Read More >

Nothing says fall or Halloween quite like pumpkins. In honor of the orange gourd Safest Choice put our safe eggs to use by making a recipe found at The Nibble.com, a magazine about gourmet and specialty foods. While pumpkin pie may be the most popular pumpkin dessert we prefer this pumpkin mousse because with every light and airy spoonful the feeling of fall comes over you through the melding of the spices, orange zest and pumpkin. Also, it can be served in a number of fun ways. The Nibble suggested hollowing out mini-pumpkins or using champagne glasses to serve the mousse in. We used small and large glasses so the layers of mousse, whipped cream and chocolate chips could be seen. However you decide, there will be Read More >

Last Friday the World Celebrated Eggs >

On 10.11.2010 by Chantel Arsenault

World Egg Day was declared as the second Friday in October during an International Egg Commission conference in Vienna, in 1996. According to the International Egg Commission website, the date is meant to be a “unique opportunity to help raise awareness of the benefits of eggs and is celebrated in countries all around the world. At Safest Choice we love an opportunity to help raise awareness of the benefits of eggs. A widely available food that is relatively inexpensive, contains 12 percent of the recommended daily value of protein, is packed with nutrients, vitamins and is low calories deserves a day of celebration! Eggs are also extremely versatile making them a perfect ingredient for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack or dessert. This ensures that an egg Read More >
