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 a peachy keen way to beat the heat - July 17 is National Peach Ice Cream Day.

Summertime means many things, but mostly it means it’s hot. Time to take advantage of all the fruit that’s in season and cool down at the same time.

Ice cream is far simpler to make than one might expect. When buying an ice cream maker, skip the big-box store and head to your local garage sales: fancy ice cream makers make great wedding gifts, but often recipients don’t take the time to learn their true value. Just make sure the bowl of the ice cream maker you buy isn’t cracked. If you’d rather not invest in any equipment, you can always make ice cream with a plastic bag and a little elbow grease.

Go nuts - July 12 is National Pecan Pie Day!

Did you know that pecans contain zinc, which boosts testosterone, which is the reason people think oysters are aphrodisiacs? We bet you're in the mood for a slice now!

Not just for Thanksgiving, pecan pie is a Southern staple for good reason. There’s nothing quite like the smell of its warm, buttery crust and gooey, nutty center coming out of the oven. Just because pecan trees are found in the South, doesn’t mean you need a passport to make this pie.

Today's food holiday is muffin short of delicious - July 11 is National Blueberry Muffin Day.

Blueberries are not only rich in vitamins and antioxidants, they're also low in calories. Baking the tiny blue orbs in muffins is such an enticing concept that in 1988, Minnesota named blueberry its official state muffin (yes, such a designation exists).

Hot diggity dog! July is National Hot Dog Month and July 23 is National Hot Dog Day.

During hot dog season (Memorial Day to Labor Day), 818 hotdogs are eaten every second. And on the Fourth of July, Americans devour approximately 150 million hot dogs; that's enough to stretch from coast to coast five times.

Depending on where you are, hot dogs can look and taste completely different. From slaw dogs in the South to Chicago dogs in the Second City to Detroit’s Coney dogs, cities take their hot dogs very seriously.
