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

The current winter flu outbreak is the worst in more than a decade, and seems like everywhere you look someone is sneezing or coughing. Being sick often means a lack of appetite, but it’s important for your body to get the nutrients it needs to fight the flu virus. That's where National Homemade Soup Day comes in.

Soup is an easy vehicle for nourishment to reach your aching body. With a little planning, you can be enjoying a steaming bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup in almost the same amount of time it takes to pop a pre-made one in the microwave. Here are some tips:

Eggcellent story, but would you devil it, poach it or scramble it?

Soups to get you through flu season

Kate Krader (@kkrader on Twitter) is Food & Wine's restaurant editor. When she tells us where to find our culinary heart's desire, we listen up.

The flu is still wreaking havoc across the country. Here’s how bad things have gotten in NYC: The Manhattan Soccer Club recently asked its young players not to high-five or fist-bump one another for fear of spreading germs. Players are allowed to touch elbows to signal their team spirit.

If you’ve already high-fived the wrong person and come down with the flu, there are ways to make yourself better. One is to get out your soup spoon and dig into a bowl of supremely satisfying soup. While there’s not hard, fast scientific research that soup can fight the flu - apart from the steam from hot soup possibly helping to clear out clogged noses - no doubt it will definitely make you feel comforted. Especially if your soup comes from one of the following places.

Green soup to fight the office funk

Ashley Strickland is an associate producer at CNN.com. She likes cajoling recipes from athletes and studying up on food holidays. We ran this post in 2011, and it seemed painfully relevant this flu season.

After the “office funk” attacked for the third time this fall, I decided to take action. I needed to find an antioxidant powerhouse with the strength to fight off any and all germs and allergies. The usual suspects just weren’t cutting it and I needed a new weapon.

During my frantic search, I stumbled upon something with such a miraculous list of healthy ingredients, I couldn’t say no. And last week, I’m proud to say that green soup entered my life.

Get the recipe and the rest of the story

National soup month

Can you smell the excitement stirring? January is National Soup Month.

The cold weather that seems to grip most of the country at this time of year has a way of seeping into your bones to the point where nothing seems to help. And as the winter months wear on, and resolutions are made and broken, it gets harder and harder to find something that’s both warm and nutritious and easy to make. Fear not! I have the perfect solution: soup.

National deviled egg day

If you're frying up some eggs and bacon – lucky you! Some folks in the path of Hurricane Sandy weren’t so fortunate. CNN’s Impact Your World has a great list of ways to get resources to people who need it. Meanwhile, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Speak of the devil, November 2 is National Deviled Egg Day!

If you're in the South, you’d be hard-pressed to attend any celebration and NOT see a tray of deviled eggs being passed around. Despite being considered as Southern as biscuits and gravy, deviled eggs are actually European - Ancient Roman to be exact. To this day, variations of this egg dish are eaten across the continent in places like Sweden and Hungary.

5@5 - Essential recipes for the home cook
October 19th, 2012
05:00 PM ET
Share this on:

5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

Editor's Note: James Oseland is the editor-in-chief of Saveur Magazine. The October issue is their 150th issue.

When we were putting together the list of 150 recipes that comprise our October issue, we were faced with a deceptively straightforward question: What is an essential recipe? What I've always said - and what was reaffirmed over and over again in the production of this issue - is that a classic recipe is one that that can completely withstand the test of time.

Classic recipes are also intensely representative of the place that they come from, something that these five recipes all particularly embody. But despite their strong sense of place, they're also versatile, dishes that would work on virtually any table. Plus, and this is perhaps the most important part, they're just friggin' delicious.

World egg day

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

Get cracking! Today marks the very special occasion that is World Egg Day.

Since 1996, the International Egg Commission has used the second Friday in October to celebrate the incredible, edible egg. For a mere 70 delicious calories, you're also getting 13 essential vitamins and minerals, high-quality protein and antioxidants.

The best part is you can prepare eggs as many ways as Bubba Gump can prepare shrimp. You can scramble 'em, devil 'em, poach 'em, serve 'em sunnyside-up, the list goes on.

I thought I knew how to make eggplant Parmesan (or ParmiGIANa if you're feeling especially Italian). Eggplant, a little breading, sauce, cheese – what can go wrong with that?

Then I met Chiara Lima. She's the bubbly Italian woman who taught the best way to make this traditional Italian favorite at Mamma Agata's Italian cooking class I recently took in Ravello, Italy.
