October 3 is National Caramel Custard Day.

Caramel custard, or crème caramel,  is a caramel-coated baked egg custard. It takes a little bit of practice to perfect, but the result is a creamy, flavorful dessert that’s well worth the dress rehearsals.

Caramelized sugar is poured into buttered ramekins and swirled around to coat the sides. After that’s cooled, an egg custard is poured into the molds and then baked in a water bath. The ramekins are tipped over onto a plate for serving, and the extra caramel forms a rich sauce around the custard. It’ll end up looking a lot like a crème brulee but without the hard top.

Flour or corn tortilla, meat or no meat, with guacamole or without - tacos provide an endless list of flavor combinations. This popular street food has made its way from Mexico to homes and restaurants the world over.
 
According to Jeffrey Pilcher, history professor and author of Planet Taco: A Global History of Mexican Food, the word "taco" likely originated from silver mines in 18th century Mexico. Miners would use little charges, or explosives, to break up the ore they were mining. They’d wrap pieces of paper around gunpowder for the job. Because of the wrap's resemblance, the taco took the name. (Gives new meaning to hot sauce!)
