Let’s celebrate the sweet food holiday of National Cheesecake Day this Saturday, July 30th.

This may come as a surprise, the origins of cheesecake can be traced back to ancient Greece. This recipe used basic ingredients, like, cheese, honey and flour, and it was fed to the Greek athletes during the 776 B.C. Olympics. The main component, cream cheese, was accidentally invented by William Lawrence in 1872, while he was attempting to replicate the recipe for a French cheese called Neufchantel. Over time the popularity of cream cheese grew, and during the early 1900’s, Arnold Reuben began testing recipes and eventually created the New York Cheesecake recipe we know and love today. Join us in celebrating this rich and creamy dessert this Saturday! Try our delectable cheesecake recipes, you may find a new favorite!

Did you know that this Sunday, July 24th, is National Tequila Day?

Grab a few limes, a saltshaker and some glasses, it’s time to celebrate! Tequila has been around since the 16th century, beginning as fermented mezcal wine. Spanish conquistadors introduced copper stills to the process and distilled the mezcal wine into tequila. There’s a saying, all tequila is mezcal but not all mezcal but not all mezcal is tequila. While many succulent plants are able to produce mezcal, only the Blue Agave produces the right nectar to make tequila. Mix up a pitcher of homemade margaritas to celebrate National Tequila Day. Check out our margarita collection to fine the classic recipe and maybe a new favorite.
