“When it comes to eggs, there is a huge debate on where they should be kept, with some saying in the fridge and others saying on the counter,” she told The Sun. “The general consensus is to store eggs in the fridge, but not in the egg racks commonly found on the fridge door.”

The Debate Is Over: Here’s the Truth About Refrigerating Butter

  The Debate Is Over: Here’s the Truth About Refrigerating Butter Butter can make even the blandest piece of toast taste good. You’re probably thinking, 'Butter is dairy, there’s no way I can leave it out on the counter.' You’re actually wrong; you don’t need to refrigerate butter. The USDA listed butter as the only dairy food that is safe to keep in a power outage.

Here in the good old U.S. of A., storing your eggs in the fridge is about as American as apple pie and baseball. But depending on where you place them in the fridge , you could be harming your health, a storage expert reveals.

The fridge door is the warmest part of the fridge and is subject to constant temperature fluctuations which is why it's the worst place to store eggs , or milk for that Most experts agree that it's best to keep eggs chilled but one doctor says that for some dishes, eggs should be at room temperature.

Why this little-known rule? Placing the eggs in the door of the fridge could expose them to fluctuating temperatures as you open and close the door throughout the day, Lake said. That, in turn, causes them to rot faster. You’d be better off storing the eggs on a shelf in the fridge, where the temps will remain fairly constant. These foods, on the other hand, are better off on the counter or in the cupboard.

There you have it! Now that you’re in the loop on this dangerous storage mistake, you’ll want to pay attention to the eggs’ color, too. This is the difference between brown and white eggs and what an egg yolk’s color reveals about its nutrition.

The Not-Quite-Carbonara Pasta That's Mostly Eggs .
A funny thing about interviewing people based on recipes they’ve submitted to a website is that you never know who you’re going to be talking to. When I reached out to Rhonda Thompson, aka Rhonda35, about her recipe for Spaghetti with Fried Eggs and Pangratto for One, I really only knew a handful of things about her. 1. She was the author of a truly extraordinary recipe that prizes the rare pleasure of eating alone, so I suspected she was a lovely person. (Was I jumping to conclusions? Maybe. Was I wrong? Read on to find out.) 2. Her recipe headnote and instructions (including the bit about pouring yourself a glass of wine at the end) were written with a capable humanity, so I guessed she had quite a bit of experience in a home kitchen. 3. Her husband was in the Air Force (which is when she developed this recipe), and she has a sister named Amanda. Thank you, Rhonda! Photo by Ren Fuller After speaking with Rhonda at 11:00 at night—she’s a night owl—I learned that I was correct about my first assumption. Rhonda is lovely; so lovely, in fact, that even though she was thousands of miles away in Colorado, I felt as if we were in the same room, and like I wanted to be her friend. She was funny and articulate and before I knew it I found myself talking about my grandmother and what I’d made for dinner that night (a cauliflower curry from Meera Sodha, if you must know), as though we were old pals. I was also correct about my second assumption: she has experience cooking.
