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

Serve yourself a slice of heaven - August 18 is National Ice Cream Pie Day!

My oh my, have you ever tasted anything so sweet as ice cream pie? It's not enough to have it in a cup or cone these days, you've just got to have it slathered on a crust and drizzled with a sweet sauce.

This is the perfect way to cool off during the dog days of summer and still feel like you're having a treat - although eating right from the pint ain't no crime, either. If you can think of your favorite pie, chances are, you can make the ice cream version of it.

Ice cream pies are all the rage for birthdays, but why not celebrate your very happy unbirthday today by getting creative in the kitchen? Try a peach ice cream pie with amaretti cookie crust, a chocolate-peanut butter ice cream pie, a decadent Dulce de Leche pie or a malt shop ice cream pie.

The best part? Just like a pint, you can dig into another slice from the freezer after everyone's gone to bed.

    I knew there was no problem with having ice cream for breakfast! That's what I tell the students when our dairy bar opens in the morning (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wJbDKVRNHw)
