June 8 National Upsy Daisy Day

National Upsy Daisy Day is set aside to encourage you to face the day positively and to get up ‘gloriously, gratefully and gleefully’ each morning.

Every day is a gift and if we remember that as we rise each morning, it will help us carry a good attitude throughout the day, whatever the day may bring us.  Life is full of challenges and bumps in the road, and it is our attitude that helps us over the bumps and through the challenges to move onward with a smile. –National Day Calendar

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

Chocolate Hazelnut Cream Doughnuts

This is a yeasted doughnut recipe, which means they’re ultra fluffy and almost pillowy on the inside, and nice and crunchy on the outside. A quick coat in cinnamon sugar makes them extra special! And the filling, which is in my opinion the best part, is rich and creamy, with a subtle crunch from the roasted hazelnuts. It’s made with just 4 simple ingredients: heavy cream, butter, salt, and chocolate.

June 5 National Gingerbread Day

Many people are familiar with the gingerbread house at Christmas time, however, there are some delicious gingerbread bread, cake, bars, biscuit and cookie recipes that are perfect any time of the year. 

The term “gingerbread” originally referred to preserved ginger, later referring to a confection made up of honey and spices.

Sources indicate that in 1444, Swedish nuns were baking gingerbread to ease indigestion.

Gingerbread cake is one of my favorite ways to make old-fashioned gingerbread because I love the soft texture of the cake, and I love how quick and easy it is to make. Gingerbread cookies always take a lot of time to roll out the dough and to wait for multiple batches to bake (not to mention the disaster that my kitchen always looks like by the time I’m done.

June 4 National Cheese Day

Excellent as a snack on its own, cheese is also a perfect ingredient in pasta, soups, souffle and many other recipes. We slap it on a sandwich cold but why stop there when it can be grilled and melted like this amazing Swiss and Tomato Grilled Cheese recipe.  When company comes to visit, nothing is better than a cheeseball, especially when bacon is added.

Cheese is multinational, too! Every nation in the world has its own variety of cheese.

DIY: HOMEMADE VELVEETA CHEESE

The process for making the homemade Velveeta is very similar to that for homemade American cheese, but the ingredients are slightly different and it’s even easier, in my opinion. The most important factor, of course, is how well does it compare to the real thing? I would venture to say that’s it’s nearly identical. The consistency is the same, the flavor is the same, and it melts the exact same way. Mission accomplished!

June 3 National Chocolate Macaroon Day

National Chocolate Macaroon Day is celebrated each year on June 3. The day comes right behind National Macaroon Day which is observed on May 31.

Macaroons are a quick and easy dessert made mostly of coconut, eggs and sugar with some variations.

Coconut macaroon is the best known variety in America. Commercially made coconut macaroons are generally dense, moist and sweet, and often dipped in chocolate. Homemade macaroons and varieties produced by smaller bakeries are commonly light and fluffy. Macaroons made with coconuts are often piped out with a star shaped tip, whereas macaroons made with nuts are more likely shaped individually due to the stiffness of the dough.

June 2 National Rocky Road Day

Although there are many variations, traditionally, Rocky Road ice cream was composed of chocolate ice cream, nuts, and marshmallows.  Today, there are variations with vanilla ice cream, chocolate chips, and almonds.

National Day

According to one source, the flavor was created in March 1929 by William Dreyer in Oakland, California when he cut up walnuts and marshmallows with his wife’s sewing scissors and added them to his chocolate ice cream in a manner that reflected how his partner Joseph Edy‘s chocolate candy creation incorporated walnuts and marshmallow pieces.[2] Later, the walnuts would be replaced by pieces of toasted almond. After the Wall Street Crash of 1929, Dreyer and Edy gave the flavor its current name “to give folks something to smile about in the midst of the Great Depression.”[2] Alternatively, Fentons Creamery in Oakland claims that William Dreyer based his recipe on a Rocky Road-style ice cream flavor invented by his friend, Fentons’ George Farren, who blended his own Rocky Road-style candy bar into ice cream; however, Dreyer substituted almonds for walnuts.[3]
The original Rocky Road ice cream used chocolate ice cream with no chocolate chip pieces.[4]

The Salty Marshmallow

ROCKY ROAD COOKIES

Like their name entails, these cookies get their inspiration from rocky road ice cream: a chocolate base with almonds, chocolate chips, and marshmallow fluff both on the inside and drizzled on top. The best kind of rocky road ice cream has a marshmallow swirl rather than simple marshmallows, so naturally we’re going with the marshmallow fluff. And why not have twice the fluff with marshmallow flavor in the middle and on top? Yes, please!
