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

Look on the bright side, today's food holiday is anything but pulp fiction: May 4 is National Orange Juice Day.

Grab a glass of the good stuff and pump yourself full of Vitamin C.  Not only is it good for boosting your immune system, but drinking orange juice feels and looks good on ya.

You can enjoy other parts of the orange as well because May 4 is also National Candied Orange Peel Day.  It's like a bonus!

If you have the patience, Giada De Laurentiis has a recipe for making your own chocolate-covered version.  These treats are sure to turn your frown upside down. After all, a rind is a terrible thing to waste.

    OJ gives me heartburn if it does not have vodker in it.

    Don't think I've ever had candied orange peels, but I'd love to give them a try.

    I drink Orange Juice every day! This is great, but every day is OJ day! I wonder what other orange recipes are out there?
