The FDA has sent Hillandale Farms of Hampton, Iowa, a releasing letter allowing the company to start shipping its eggs, beginning Monday.
Hillandale Farms was one of two companies that recalled its eggs in August 2010 because of the potential for Salmonella poisoning. According to the FDA, since August, three egg-producing houses owned by Hillandale have been extensively tested and have been found to have no evidence of Salmonella contamination. Four others overseen by the company still are undergoing further testing before they are allowed to ship. Hillandale has also promised to enhance its systems in order to detect Salmonella in the future.

The Sunday Supper is making a comeback - just ask Chef Anne Quatrano.
Quatrano, along with her husband Clifford Harrison, are the James Beard Foundation award-winning duo behind some of Atlanta's most adored eateries: Bacchanalia, Quinones, Floataway Café, Star Provisions, Quinones and Abattoir.
For those of us non-Southerners scratching our heads over the difference between "dinner" and "supper," Quatrano explains it as such: "Sunday Supper is a midday meal around a communal table."
"How Southern!" she adds.
If you ever needed a reason to pull up a chair on a lazy Sunday and celebrate food together - here it is.
Five Reasons to Revive the Sunday Supper: Anne Quatrano
Areas devoid of fresh food outlets, like Newark, New Jersey, have been deemed "food deserts."
As part of the Newark Fresh Foods Program, the Small Grocer Initiative helps small-scale food marts in Newark, like the Food Plaza, expand and increase their supply of fresh fruits and vegetables.
We hate to be the ones to break it to you, but if you don't have your turkey purchased, thawing, possibly cooking, your pie crusts vented, sweet potatoes peeled and green bean casserole festively Durkee'd by approximately 2 p.m. EST today, your family and all of your loved ones will be spending Thanksgiving huddled together in a torn Denny's banquette, fighting over roll scraps and hating your guts.
That is, if our inbox is to be believed - which we tend to think it oughtn't. To paraphrase this weekend's BlogWorld co-panelist, L.A. Times food editor Rene Lynch, as a food journalist, 364 days of the year are spent fussing over Thanksgiving coverage, then there's the actual event, and then the day after - 364 days more fret. And yup, we pass the panic on to you. Sorry about that.
So how does it work in your house, and how might we be of most use to you, as a food site?

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.
Like cake, only cuter: October 18 is National Chocolate Cupcake Day. As if we needed an excuse to eat one ... or three.
The first mention of cupcakes can be traced back to 1796, when “American Cookery” included a recipe for “a cake to be baked in small cups.” Still, chocolate cake mixes didn’t become widely available until the 1900s, leaving the non-scratch baking public unable to combine the two delicacies for more than 100 years.
To make up for lost time, treat yourself to all the fixin's: sprinkles, chocolate shavings and heaps of icing. Seconds, anyone?

Donna Huntley had never had a sip of wine in her life – until she found out that her birth grandmother had owned a vineyard. Now she's on a mission to get in touch with her roots, via vino. Read the first installment here.
Over the last couple of weeks, I have been trying to learn about wines. To anyone taking on this challenge - good luck, as there is a lot to learn.
My starting point, since it was the first restaurant that came to mind, was the Olive Garden. I knew they served wines and may even have a bartender who could suggest where to start.
This was a good move. Olive Garden actually has a wine tasting deal where you can try a sip of a wine for 25 cents. Not bad. Once I explained to the bartender what I was doing, she was more than willing to assist. She even made a few suggestions.
