National Cheese Lovers’ Week… and other foodie holidays

Did you know that this week is National Cheese Lovers’ Week? Neither did I until I logged onto Twitter about 10 minutes ago!

Then it got me thinking, what other National Foodie Holidays don’t I know about? There must be hundreds…

Well, it turns out there is pretty much a day for everything!

For example: February 4th is Stuffed Mushroom Day (hooray!), March 20th is National Ravioli Day, May 8th is Empanada Day, June 19th is National Dry Martini Day, July 29th is Lasagna Day… and the list literally goes on and on!

I’m not one to pass up a good holiday celebration, so in honour of National Cheese Lovers’ Week, here are three of my favourite cheesy recipes…

It’s National Soup Month! What’s in Your Bowl?

Did you know that January is National Soup Month? Thank goodness because it’s cold outside, and who doesn’t love a bowl of steamy hot soup on a cold winter day? I know I do!

It seems that soup is an overlooked item at my house – it’s easy to make, I often have the ingredients on hand – but it’s never top of mind when I’m staring into the fridge thinking “what the heck should I make for dinner?”

It must have been a recent case of the winter “blahs” that had me stepping into my kitchen thinking about making soup… or it could have been these delicious soup recipes I have been drooling over for the past month or so.
