June Dairy Month is halfway over and summer is finally here! In the midst of all the heat, our Cool Food Panelists have been cooking up some exciting foods to celebrate Dairy Month. These delicious, flavorful and dairy-inspired recipes are fit for summer and a whole lot of family fun!
Thinking of making your dad brunch this Father’s Day? Great idea! Let me help give you some inspiration on hearty but healthy Father’s Day Brunch ideas that are sure to please. First, think about the star of the table, the item you will likely spend the most time on. If you have too many stars to make you will feel overwhelmed and pressured which makes everyone stressed and unhappy. Casual and relaxed and what dad really wants, and to eat before his blood sugar gets too low.
Our friends at Freschetta® recently partnered with several bloggers to prove it’s easy to throw a gluten-free pizza party that’s fun, delicious and safe for your family and friends. We wanted to share our favorite ideas with our readers because we know it’s hard to find a gluten free pizza everyone can agree on.
June is Dairy Month and we’re continuing to celebrate the innovative possibilities the dairy aisle has to offer! Whether you stick to the staples or enjoy trying out creative new products, you won’t run out of meals ideas and recipes to test in your kitchen.
As May comes to a close, we just aren’t ready to let go of all the celebrations that occurred this month. We celebrated both National Egg Month and National BBQ Month. We also highlighted important days from Cinco de Mayo to Mother’s Day to graduations to parties and picnics to kick off summer and all the in-betweens. We want to have one more celebration with you by sharing some of the most delicious dishes our Cool Food Panelists have prepared.
Today is yet another awesome food holiday to celebrate—it’s National Shrimp Day! Did you know that Americans eat more shrimp than any other seafood? Of the 15.5 pounds of fish and shellfish eaten by the average American each year, shrimp accounts for 4 pounds, topping the entire list.
We’ve all heard of Cinco de Mayo (“the fifth of May”) as a fun celebration with lots of Mexican food, but what is the history behind the holiday event? A common misconception is that Cinco de Mayo celebrates Mexico’s independence, but it is actually centered around celebrating Mexico’s victory in the battle at Puebla, which occurred during the Franco-Mexican War on May 5, 1862. It was unsure that Mexico could win the battle, since they were heavily outnumbered by French military forces. Ultimately the win became a significant source of pride for Mexico.
There’s a day for everything it seems. Some we can relate to, some not so much. National English Muffin Day – April 23 — is especially exciting for those of us English muffin lovers!
These days it’s all about veggies, veggies, veggies! Number one on Forbes’ list of the Top 5 Food Trends for 2017 is vegetarian comfort food. What is that you ask? Well, people are looking for new comfort foods that include mashed cauliflower and innovations such as vegetable crust pizza. As plant-based diets gain popularity, certain vegetables are on the rise as well including eggplant, broccoli and squash. (Bet you didn’t know plant-based bacon is a thing!) 😉
