Practical, science-based, safe, sane "low carb" book that doesn't pull any punches? (If simply "Atkins," which one?) I'm looking for a book that is gung-ho, but still spells out what can go wrong and why: I'm three days in to a self-created low carb diet. All sorts of good stuff has happened, but all sorts of disconcerting stuff has happened, too. [more inside]

Pregnant women are advised to not eat foods with raw eggs. I looked the the ingredients for standard store bought tarter sauce and it listed egg yolks. Is this safe to eat? Do all commercial products use pasteurized eggs? Is that a safe assumption to make?

I get strange headaches from eating omelettes (and sometimes, plain eggs). I'm curious as to what causes that. [more inside]

It seems to me that French eggs taste much stronger than American eggs. And therefore, any dish with eggs that I prepare in France tastes bad because the strong egg taste overwhelms all the other flavors (this especially ruins sweet dishes). Does anyone have advice on how to get rid of the taste (or better yet, to find eggs in Paris that don't have the strong taste)? [more inside]

Do you know any easy-to-make cookie (or just dessert) recipes that have no eggs? Bonus points if there are no ingredients that would require a trip to the grocery store (no buttermilk, no special chocolate, no fancy egg-substitute, etc.).
Need help from experienced bakers: how do I get rid of the eggy smell that clings to otherwise delicious biscotti (and some other baked goods) after they come out of the oven? The only advice I have found is to add a teaspoon of honey to the batter. (I use your standard eggs, out of the shell) Does this work? What causes the eggy smell anyway? How do industrial biscotti-bakers avoid having the smell?

What can I make today with six unexpectedly broken eggs? The answers "two quiches" or "a huge omelet" aren't great choices for me as I had a frittata for breakfast and am feeling a little egged out. One or more savory dishes would be good, and it would be great if they froze well, although that isn't required. [more inside]
