It seems that I can't click anywhere on the internet without being inundated with information about the dirty dozen, salmonella, and the dangers of e. coli. There is always a segment about the dangers of raw eggs. This has made me think the last few times I've baked. When I was little I always licked the spoon when my mother was making cookies, muffins, etc. When we were in college we ate raw cookie dough at least once per week. But now I think twice about doing this, even though I love it. Do you? When did we all get so scared of raw eggs?
