Pick Strawberries Day is May 20th

May 20th is Pick Strawberries Day, being from San Diego this is a day to look forward to because the one thing better than strawberries is freshly picked strawberries. Strawberries are mostly used for jams or in desserts but are also amazing in salads.

PickStrawberriesDay

Hand picking strawberries is a blast and especially fun with kids, if picking fresh strawberries isn’t an option for you, be sure to pick a pound or two up from your local grocery story to try these delicious recipes. If you really love strawberries pick up a couple extra pounds they freeze well, just wash (dry) and hull them before freezing. Frozen strawberries are also great in smoothies!

 

 

National Chocolate Chip Day is May 15th

May 15th is National Chocolate Chip Day!
Did you know chocolate chips were created at the Toll House Inn in Massachusetts when Ruth Graves Wakefield ran out of bakers chocolate and instead used some chopped up semi-sweet chocolate. Ruth’s chocolate chip cookies were an instant hit in the 1930’s and now they are the classic go to for a sweet treat.

National Pecan Day is April 14th

April 14th is National Pecan Day. I love pecans and am excited to try out some of these fabulous recipes!

NationalPecanDay

If you live in the South, chances are you celebrate this holiday every year as the United States, more specifically the south, is where pecans are grown. If you head to Texas you may be able to find some wild pecan trees, it is, after all the Texas state tree. Not ready to travel? Then head to your local grocery store and pick a bag, or two up and try one of these recipes, maybe even share some with a friend or neighbor.
