June 14 National Strawberry Shortcake Day

National Strawberry Shortcake Day is observed each year on June 14th.  Either on a shortcake biscuit or a sponge cake, strawberry shortcake is an easy and refreshing summertime dessert!

Strawberries are sliced, mixed with sugar then allowed to sit for about an hour until they have surrendered plenty of their juices. The shortcakes are then split, and the bottom is covered with a layer of the strawberries, juice and whipped cream.  The top is then put back on, and more strawberries, juice and whipped cream are added to finish it off. –National Day

Warm buttermilk biscuits filled with juicy, sweet strawberries and whipped cream make the best strawberry shortcake.

June 13 National Sewing Machine Day

Today, June 13 is National Sewing Machine Day, and is observed every year. Can you imagine sewing your clothing by hand? Every stitch? Many people today, have began to sew more and to teach their children how to sew.

Skilled cabinet-maker and English inventor, Thomas Saint, received the first patent for a design of a sewing machine in 1790.  It was intended for leather and canvas, was never advertised and no evidence of it, other than his drawings, could be found.  In 1874, William Newton Wilson found Saint’s drawings in the London Patent Office, made adjustments and built a working model. The London Science Museum currently owns Wilson’s model. 

Industrial use of the sewing machine reduced the burden that was placed upon housewives, moving clothing production from them and seamstresses to large-scale factories. This also resulted in a decrease in production time which caused the price of clothing to drop considerably. –National Day Calendar

June 12 National Peanut Butter Cookie Day

Alabama’s American agricultural extension educator, George Washington Carver, was the most well-known promoter of the peanut. Carver compiled 105 peanut recipes from various cookbooks, agricultural bulletins, and other sources.  In 1916, he put together a Research Bulletin called How to Grow the Peanut and 105 Ways of Preparing it for Human Consumption. Included in this Research Bulletin were three recipes for peanut cookies calling for crushed or chopped peanuts as one of its ingredients.

It was in the early 1920s that peanut butter was found listed as an ingredient in cookies.

June 11 National German Chocolate Day

Its roots can be traced back to 1852 when American baker Samuel German developed a type of dark baking chocolate for the Baker’s Chocolate Company. The brand name of the product, Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate, was named in honor of him.

On June 3, 1957, a recipe for “German’s Chocolate Cake” appeared as the “Recipe of the Day” in The Dallas Morning News. It was created by Mrs. George Clay, a homemaker from 3831 Academy Drive, Dallas, Texas. This recipe used the baking chocolate introduced 105 years prior and became quite popular. General Foods, which owned the Baker’s brand at the time, took notice and distributed the cake recipe to other newspapers in the country. Sales of Baker’s Chocolate are said to have increased by as much as 73% and the cake would become a national staple. The possessive form (German’s) was dropped in subsequent publications, forming the “German Chocolate Cake” identity and giving the false impression of a German origin. –Wikipedia

June 10 National Black Cow Day

A Black Cow was originally made with root beer and vanilla ice cream.  Now it is sometimes made with root beer and chocolate ice cream or cola and vanilla ice cream.

Frank J. Wisner of Cripple Creek, Colorado, gets the credit for inventing the Black Cow way back in August of 1893.

One night, as Wisner, owner of the Cripple Creek Cow Mountain Gold Mining Company, was staring out the window and thinking about the line of soda waters that was producing for the citizens of Cripple Creek, he came upon an idea.  The full moon that night that was shining on the snow-capped Cow Mountain reminded him of a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  He hurried back to his bar and added a spoonful of the creamy vanilla goodness to the children’s favorite flavor of soda, Myers Avenue Red Root Beer.  When he tasted it, he knew he had a hit. Sure enough, he did!

Wisner named the new creation, Black Cow Mountain but the local children shortened the name to Black Cow.National Day Calendar

ROOT BEER ICE CREAM

We love root beer floats… so this was a given. Usually made with vanilla ice cream and root beer soda, root beer floats have been a favorite for many years. Well, now you can have it in ice cream form.

June 9 National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day

It’s National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day, time to enjoy a slice of a pie you many never have tried before. While Strawberry Rhubarb Pie has a long history, dating back to the 1800’s, not too many people have ever tried it. Some people, especially the younger crowd, do not even know what rhubarb is.

The rhubarb plant has a long, thick, edible stem with good flavor, but a tart taste. Rhubarb recipes use sugar to sweeten it. The leaves are not eaten, as they are poisonous. Through the years, debate has raged as to whether Rhubarb is a vegetable, or a fruit. It is commonly thought of as a fruit, as this is the way it is used. In actuality, Rhubarb is actually a vegetable.

Are you ready to be adventuresome?  Dig into a piece of Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. You will not be disappointed.  – Holiday Insights

Today’s treat is a most delicious Strawberry Rhubarb dump cake recipe! It is also commonly known as super easy Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler made in the oven. It is really easy to make too! And boy will it put you in high favor with all those that taste it!

Instead, I mixed in sifted strawberry rhubarb powder (I’ll show you how to make this). The end result was an intensely fruity meringue. Score!

Being Kind in our world {and Teaching Our Children to do the Same}

let’s say you are checking out at the grocery store and you notice the checker appears a little unhappy.  You approach the check out with the most happy demeanor and compliment her as you have a pleasant conversation.  You then hand her a chocolate bar that you just purchased and let her know that you bought it with her in mind in hopes that she have a wonderful day.  Not only does being kind to her effect the checker and future people who come into contact with her, but you also leave a little bit more cheerful having made her day.  This “ripple” that was created from one small act of kindness could potentially keep “rippling” and effect hundreds of people that day as everyone works a little harder at being kind.

June 7 National Doughnut Day

National Doughnut Day started in 1938 as a fundraiser for Chicago’s The Salvation Army. Their goal was to help those in need during the Great Depression and to honor The Salvation Army “Lassies” of World War I, who served doughnuts to soldiers.

In Chicago and other cities, National Doughnut Day is still a fundraiser for The Salvation Army. In 2017, the organization joined with Russ’s Market, Super Saver, LaMar’s Donuts, Hurts Donut and Krispy Kreme in Lincoln, Nebraska and Tempe, Arizona to raise funds on National Doughnut Day. –Wikipedia
