I’ve been a big fan of Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs ever since learning about them a few years ago. They’ve taken the worry out of eating raw and undercooked egg dishes like Spaghetti Carbonara and custard-based desserts (Banana Chocolate Cheesecake Ice Cream, anyone?)  because they are actually pasteurized.

The method is simple –> eggs are placed in an all natural, gentle water bath, which eliminates the risk of Salmonella inside the egg but keeps the nutrition and flavor intact. (Learn more about the process here.)

So, I was thrilled – along with my co-founders – when Safe Eggs decided to sponsor Blog Brûlée for the second year in a row this past September. And I even learned something new about them – you can leave them out on the counter safely for up to 12 hours!

This is another selling point in my book because ever since I had a kid + hit my 40s, the absentmindedness has increased.

Case in point:

So, I know that forgetting the egg carton on the counter for hours or putting it in the pantry instead of the fridge is highly likely to happen in this house. But Safe Eggs has me covered (for up to 12 hours at least.)

Blog Brulee co-founder, Gretchen Brown of kumquat gets the credit for developing and photographing this divine dish. What I love about this salmon recipe is it’s so simple yet elegant at the same time. You could serve this as a quick weekday dinner or for a more formal affair, too.
