National Hot Dog Day | Sonoran Hot Dogs

Ah, National Hot Dog Day. A food holiday I started planning, or rather, thinking about since the very beginning of this thing. I know it’s unknown what exactly goes into hot dogs, but I think it’s safe to say that I love it. Ballpark dogs, grilled, boiled – I play even and love them all….

National Junk Food Day | Spicy Pizza Bianca with Meatballs

When I think of junk food, I think of chips, cookies, mostly salty foods you eat with your hands. I choose not to think of pizza as junk food. I mean, it is thin crust and I do have peppers on it so it’s okay, right? Anyway, if you’re going to eat junk food, it…

Lemon Spaghetti | Flavoring With Lemon Instead of Salt

Today’s post is sponsored by Sunkist, but my love for the Sunkist S’alternative option is all my own. Fun fact: I probably buy more Sunkist lemons than I do anything else in my kitchen.

National Fortune Cookie Day | Homemade Fortune Cookies

I’m happy to report that the thought of making fortune cookies is more daunting than the task is. I knew I wanted to try to make homemade fortune cookies, but I didn’t have the first clue how to begin, and it was a scary thought. Have you seen how perfect fortune cookies are? And the…

National Caviar Day | Caviar From Oystercatchers in Tampa

Can I be honest with you? SURE I can. I am totally going to skip making anything for National Caviar Day. First of all, aren’t the good caviars pretty expensive? I’m just a poor food blogger. Second, I don’t even like the stuff. I even order my sushi sans roe, that’s how much it creeps…
