There's a hole lotta happy going on. The first Friday in June is National Donut Day!

Started by the Salvation Army in Chicago in 1938, the day honors the Army’s ‘Donut Lassies’ who served treats and provided assistance to soldiers on the front lines during World War 1. (And this isn't to be confused with National Doughnut Day, which is in November and celebrates the actual food.)

South Africa's unique culture - and complex history - shines through in everything the "rainbow nation" does. Even the country's foodways reflect the diverse demographics of people that call the southernmost point of Africa home.

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

Here's one way to shake up your morning coffee ritual - July 26 is National Coffee Milkshake Day.

There’s nothing quite like an iced coffee on a hot day. You get a (necessary) caffeine fix and a quick cool down all in one cup. If you want to amp up the cool down even further, you’re ready for a coffee milkshake.

The key to a good coffee milkshake is cold brewed coffee. Note, this isn’t the same as regular coffee just chilled (though that can be used if you’re pressed for time). There’s an entirely different process to follow for the cold version, but luckily it’s easy.
