July 31: National Raspberry Cake Day!

Ohhh I do love raspberries but I've never baked a raspberry cake before. Have any of you? I've made raspberry cupcake and cheesecakes but never a raspberry cake. This photo is a "White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Cake" and it makes you want to eat it right off the page! Ohhh yeah! Does anyone have this recipe? Or how about any raspberry cake recipe that you would like to share?

The colors are so beautiful, this one would be great for Valentinest too-

Happy Raspberry Cake Day everyone!
Remember, today's the day to make a homemade raspberry cake ;)

Oh my gosh get a look at that cheesecake! My mouth is watering right now. Today (July 30) is National Cheesecake Day and this is one dessert that I just don't get to eat enough of. I think I favor Boston style cheesecakes a bit more that New York style cheesecakes. Don't get me wrong I could devour both of them giggle~ but it seems the New York style is heavier and I tend to like fluffy- It feels like you can eat more if it's fluffy. Hummm I don't think that's a good thing is it :(

For the life of me I couldn't find any resources to who created this holiday at all. I found plenty of blogs that write about cheesecake day but no real trail to it's origination at all. Maybe someone could tell us.

Happy Cheesecake Day ya'll- I'm on my way to the kitchen to make the easy cheaters recipe of cream cheese and lemon juice. You know the no-bake one- in a ready made graham cracker crust. What can I say-

We say goodbye to July and hot dogs

Ahhhhh- it's the last day of National Hot Dog month and I have to tell you I really hate to see it go. I have had a hot dog of a time (giggle~) doing research on the many types of hot dogs and I have to tell you I don't think I have ever ate so many hot dogs in all my life. As I was reading all the different ways that hot dogs are ate around the world; I found myself cooking up another hot dog so I could see what it tasted like ;) I love hot dogs anyway and testing out new flavors was right up my alley. I can literally say I ate hot dogs all month long- Even though we say goodbye to hot dogs we are replacing it with August and National Sandwich Month. (is a hot dog a sandwich? there are those that say it's not) Either way we are in for another month of combined flavors in a sandwich once again and I couldn't be happier ;) Goodbye hot dog month and hellooooo National Sandwich month!

I can't tell you how many times I pigged out on Aunt Pat's fried chicken. She could cook the best friend chicken ever and she always cooked it in a big black cast iron skillet too. Ummm umm it sure was good! If she was with us today; I would sure be knocking on her door to help her celebrate National Fried Chicken Day! hahaha!
