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

This is the time of year that teachers like me loathe.  The countdown to the upcoming school year is creeping closer and closer.  The end is officially near.  This year it’s going to be extra hard to go back to school… our little baby girl was born July 1st and I’ve been so lucky to be able to spend these past two months with her all day, every day.

And instead of getting all sad and bummed out about the whole having to drop her off at the babysitter thing, I’m bringing you a recipe that reminds me of one of my favorite days I spent with Asheley and my little love bug.

Cheesecake Batter Parfaits >

On 07.30.2015 by Michael T. Roddey

Today is National Cheesecake Day, and I am pleased to announce the release of another SafeEggs TV video! The second release from the “Eggs Up!�? series featuring yours truly will deliver an instructional video for Cheesecake Batter Parfaits utilizing Davidson’s Safest Choice pasteurized shell eggs. As I follow trends and explore new recipes to feature our pasteurized eggs, the utilization of batters is a timely topic. The movement to smaller desserts and at times duets or trios of desserts all play into the application of the Cheesecake Batter Parfaits. Regardless, if you are at home or in the restaurant, the ability to utilize it in various quantities and applications is a sure benefit. If you have ever been warned about eating raw cookie dough or cake

Mason Jar Sriracha Shrimp Caesar Salad >

On 07.24.2015 by Gina Matsoukas

I’ll fully admit I didn’t get the point of this mason jar salad trend until recently. It just seemed so stupid to me as I sat there wondering why you’d shove all the ingredients of a salad into a jar and how you’d get your fork all the way to the bottom to eat it! Then I realized it’s the whole convenience factor for portability and even more important, an excellent way to keep the dressing from turning the lettuce soggy or requiring an extra container to carry it in to avoid that. Hindsight is 20/20 I guess because now I realize the whole concept is actually kind of genius.

My husband has a Caesar salad addiction. I’m not even exaggerating when I say

Open Faced Burger Eggs Benedict >

On 05.27.2015 by Gina Matsoukas

Prior to 2009, I had never had eggs Benedict. I have no idea how I let myself get to 27 years old without experiencing the deliciousness that is a perfectly poached egg on a crispy English muffin with creamy, buttery hollandaise sauce on top, but somehow it happened.

In March of 2009 we found ourselves at a Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico on vacation and with enough points racked up from work travel, we got free breakfast every morning in the hotel restaurant. Usually hotel restaurants are nothing to get excited about but on the first morning when I saw 5 different types of eggs benedict options on the menu, I knew breakfast would easily become one of the best parts of the

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.�?
