September 18 is National Cheeseburger Day

September 18 is National Cheeseburger Day

Ah the cheeseburger. It's as American as, well, American cheese. But that’s as far as the patty’s origin gets narrowed down. Various eating establishments (mostly in California) claim to have invented the cheeseburger. The Pasadena Sun did due diligence in investigating the burger’s background and while it heavily leans toward one over the other, it’s left undecided.

September 21 National Pecan Cookie Day

September 21 National Pecan Cookie Day
Go a little nuts with your cookies - September 21 is National Pecan Cookie Day.
 
You can create your own pecan cookie adventure, or recipe, today! It's one of those lovely munchies that you can make a multitude of ways, and none of them are wrong.
 
We already celebrated pecan sandies, but you can also raise a toast to pecans by tossing them into cookie dough alongside chocolate chunks, raisins and oatmeal, caramel, orange or lots of butter. Pop 'em on top or chop them into pieces - no matter how you like them, pecans are a great addition to your favorite cookie recipe.
 
But beware - it's how you pronounce "pecan" that's nuttin' but trouble.
