The other day, we posted a lunchtime poll asking readers about the frequency of their families' dinner when they were growing up. The comments made us hungry for more.

"We were only allowed to miss family dinner two nights a week when I was growing up and sports/church choir/etc. counted as a miss in addition to hanging out with friends on Friday or Saturday nights. It was tough in high school and at times I really resented it, but it was great. The only problem now is that as an adult living on my own I'm ALWAYS going out to eat with other people because eating by myself seems so lonely after 18 years of family dinners!" - Kate

Use: I'm a major chilehead, so the more capsaicin, the better.

Breakfast Buffet

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

June 23 marks a countrywide observance of the utmost importance:  it's National Pecan Sandies Day.

Pecan sandies are similar to the standard shortbread cookie: crisp, crumbly and loaded with butter.

The cookie's namesake stems from the addition of chopped pecans to the dough, and its characteristically "sandy," or sugary, texture (a little sprinklin' of sugar never hurt anybody).

Go on - embrace your inner Cookie Monster.
