June 6 National Applesauce Cake Day

National Applesauce Cake Day is observed annually on June 6th.  This food holiday is a day to enjoy a delicious piece (or two) of the moist and tasty applesauce cake.

In any cake recipe, applesauce may be substituted for the butter or oil for a healthier alternative.   It is also said that one-half cup of applesauce may be substituted for one egg in some baking recipes for those who have egg allergies.

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!
