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

Find your thrill on blueberry hill – May 26 is National Blueberry Cheesecake Day.

Combining oh-my-gosh-I-just-can’t-stop-eating cheesecake with sweetly tart blueberries is pure genius.  Besides the taste factor (don’t you love these indulgent ways to get your fruit servings?), blueberries are also called “brain berries” because they’re so good for you.  So good cheesecake + so good for you berries = a dessert with candidacy for Mensa.

You can smother your cheesecake with blueberry sauce, swirl in some blueberry purée or make finger-food-friendly blueberry cheesecake bars.  If you’re really in a squeeze but ya gotta have it, try a lemon blueberry milkshake.

Just don’t make it so thick you suck all those smart brain cells out through the straw.

    Wow! Who would have ever thought there would be a day devoted to blueberry cheesecake? I love it!! BEST day of the year!
    I made this yesterday in honour of the special day. The best part? It's vegan and trust me when I say, delicious too!

    I was expected some good suggestions – Not bacon, eggs and a flipping cheese cake!

      And "I was expected" to have some intelligent and insightful repartee when I clicked on your name. Guess we were both disappointed.
