Hey, Blondie! You know what May 9 is? It's National Blonde Brownie Day!

Blonde or butterscotch brownies, also known as "blondies," pack the sweetness without the caffeine kick of chocolate.

They are made with a brown sugar base and baked like any dessert bar. If your brownies have ever turned out a little bitter, never fear - the brown sugar will take you away on a wave of sweetness.

Today's food holiday is a bit of shear luck - May 7 is National Roast Leg of Lamb Day!

Even though Easter has passed, a hankering for a well-roasted leg of lamb can happen at any time.

You can usually pick up a leg of lamb at your local grocery or butcher shop. The tender cut is from the hindquarter of the animal. The portion is probably a little bit bigger than any roast you've ever put in the oven, but don't let that intimidate you.

Raise your glass - May 4 is National Home Brew Day!

Sometimes, daring fans of beer, wine, cider and other alcoholic beverages surpass their passion and turn to small-scale fermenting at home - either for themselves, competitions or to share among friends.

Although there have been various legalities and bans concerning home brewing, especially across other countries, the ban was lifted here in 1978. However, it's up to individual states to let you brew to your heart's content or shut down your basement business.
