Fun Food Holidays™ Today is April 24th

CDK is the home of the original Fun Food Holidays. This collection of food-related dates was created so every day would be a holiday. We have the most complete and up-to-date collection (even though others have tried to copy us) so check back each day for a new reason to celebrate food!


National Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day

As a kid, you might've thought pigs in a blanket sounded more like something you'd find in a barnyard than on the breakfast table. This dish can be prepared as a breakfast item, typically with breakfast sausages wrapped in biscuit dough or puff pastry. It also makes a delicious hors d'oeuvre, with small wieners or Vienna sausages baked in pastry or dough. Get your oink on, it's National Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day!

National Zucchini Bread Day

Everybody knows that zucchini is that versatile veggie that you can bake with. But when was the last time you made zucchini bread? This subtly sweet, moist loaf might remind you of banana bread, but it's got a flavor all its own. It's popular too; CDK's got several dozen recipes for your National Zucchini Bread Day celebration!

National Pretzel Day

Soft pretzels as big as your hand. Crunchy, salty bite-size pretzels. Both types are not merely snack foods, they also have a rich tradition in European baking. In fact, the knotted loops of a pretzel were long the identifying symbol of bakeries across Europe, similar to the well known barber pole of yesterday and today. Enjoy some today, National Pretzel Day!

National Prime Rib Day

Many people regard prime rib as a gourmet cut of beef. But it's typically just a slice of the more prosaic standing rib roast, without necessarily coming from USDA prime grade beef. As red meat goes, it tends to be delicious and tender and a fine item to serve on special occasions. Today must be one of those occasions; it's National Prime Rib Day!

National Blueberry Pie Day

Most types of blueberries used in cooking are native to North America. That's probably why there's a National Blueberry Pie Day in America! Used often in muffins and pancakes, blueberries really shine in that popular and delectable dessert, blueberry pie. CDK offers over four dozen blueberry pie recipes in which you can use fresh or canned blueberries, or pre-made commercial blueberry pie filling. Sweet!
