Cooking Safety! Temperature Charts

Just like the last blog, I admit I am frequently looking up information on various cooking details. If internal cooked temps of meat stress you out and you often times find yourself on google moments before dinner is finished.....then this chart is for you! I now have these charts hanging up on the inside of my cabinet doors with easy access, vs referring to my phone, thus wasting even more time :)
