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

Forget the strawberries, August 7 is National Raspberries in Cream Day!

If you need a simple but elegant dessert that’s bound to please family and guests, try today’s cause for celebration. Raspberries and whipped cream layered together in a parfait glass is the perfect after-dinner treat on those summer nights.

Like strawberries, raspberries are in season from June until mid-August. The plump, ruby, juicy gems are low in saturated fat and cholesterol, and a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin C and Manganese.

For a little pizzazz, try adding some flavorings, like almond or hazelnut extract, to your whipped cream. Then, you can add the same nut to your parfait for a bit of texture.

Whatever you do, hurry, because these little beauties won’t be in season for much longer!

    Real cream only, please. Would mascarpone work for this?
