I made these devilishly-deliscious treats recently. I could not stop eating them! A must try!
Safest Choice™ Eggs aren't just good for sunny side
up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature
raw eggs, like
Caesar salad dressing,
raw cookie dough,
and more. Take homemade ice cream,
for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to
Salmonella bacteria in homemade
ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
