Jamie Sanders, a native Texan, left the corporate world behind after having children. Now a mother of 2, she is the blogger behind Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom. Jamie started her blog a few years ago as a creative outlet for her many “scattered” interests. Her blog is a testament to her love of all things crafty; cooking, sewing, DIY projects and kids crafts. When not focused on her husband or children, Jamie can be found either in her perpetually messy craft room sewing and crafting up a storm or in the kitchen attempting to create simple, healthy and budget friendly family meals. Her biggest hope is that some of what she does can help inspire others to sew, cook and create!

The Raw Egg Risk
Safest Choice™ Eggs aren't just good for sunny side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard 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.
