National Garlic Day- April 19th 2018

Hey Foodies, not only is it the warmest day of 2018 so far, it is also National Garlic Day today, which means for all you garlic lovers, you can eat as much as you like without caring if you stink up the place lol. Afterall today is a day for you to celebrate without a care in the world :-)



This stinking rose is a member of the lily family. This family also includes onions, leeks and shallots. While garlic originated in Asia over 7,000 years ago, it is used in a variety of cuisines, but it is also used for medicinal purposes.
It is considered an herbal remedy for colds, and it has been suggested to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol. Modern science has proven garlic’s antibiotic properties.

Myth and superstition reek of garlic. The most familiar one is garlic wards off vampires. This same theory seemed to work on witches, werewolves, demons and other such evils one could come across. Folklore tells us garlic grew from satan’s left footprint when he left the Garden of Eden; Greek midwives kept evils spirits away with it, and courage filled Roman soldiers who consumed the bulb.

World Malbec Day- April 17th 2018




Guys so I've never actually heard of the word Malbec before but since this popped off on my reminder this morning; I wanted to sort of touch on it and jump on the bandwagon :-)

Basically it's a purple grape variety used in making red wine..


Now here's a brief history of this glorious day I found online..

"Malbec World Day is celebrated on April 17, to commemorate the day when president Domingo Faustino Sarmiento of Argentina officially made it his mission to transform Argentina's wine industry. On that day, back in 1853, he tasked Michel Aimé Pouget, a French soil expert, to bring over new vines. Amongst his selection, was Malbec. Pouget continued experimenting with the adaptation of French varietals to Argentina’s diverse terroirs. A decade later, France underwent a Phylloxera Plague that affected the Rhône region. The name, "Malbec World Day", translates (somewhat incorrectly) from the Spanish "Malbec Mondo" meaning "Malbec throughout the world". Somehow, the name stuck and continues to confuse English speakers to this day, as most just end up calling it "World Malbec Day", or "Malbec Mondo" for those who like the alliteration. In the meantime, Malbec flourished in Argentina creating wines widely superior to those of its country of origin. Many decades later, in 1956, France faced another obstacle: a freeze wiped out the majority of Malbec vineyards."- source:- wiki.com

National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day- April 2nd 2018



Hey guys so today April 2nd is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day; it is a day 

that celebrates the most popular sandwich in America! It doesn’t matter whether you like grape, strawberry, orange marmalade, blackberry, or any other form of jelly, the best compliment to them is the amazing and delectable peanut butter! Peanut Butter and Jelly has become such a popular taste sensation that it can be found in hundreds of different derivations.


Peanut Butter was first invented by the Aztecs, who ground roasted peanuts into a rich nutritious paste. Peanut paste has been used all over the world in many different derivations ever since, being an absolute foundation of many cuisines. One thing that made this protein and calorie dense food popular is it’s resistance to going off, and the ease with which it could be transported. Combine that with an amazing taste and texture, and it’s no wonder that peanut butter is a world favorite! 

Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches were thought to be invented during the American Civil war, when the men mixed their peanut ration and jelly ration to create a delicious new treat while out on the field. When the men finally returned from the war, bedraggled and tired, they also brought with them news of this wonderful treat that brought them comfort on the field. Peanut butter and jelly sales soared at the wars end, all thanks to this delightful combination of sweet jelly and smooth peanut butter!

International Day of Happiness- March 20th 2018

Who's happy :-)

Yippeeee, first of all its the first official day of spring today, second of all british summer time starts on sunday 25th March and the snow is finally moving away slowly.. Tell me these are not reasons to be happy..


Apart from the above, why is this glorious day celebrated???

Well in 2012 the first ever UN conference on Happiness took place and the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which decreed that the International Day of Happiness would be observed every year on 20 March. It was celebrated for the first time in 2013.


The original idea came from the Kingdom of Bhutan in the Himalayan region of Asia. There, the population is thought by many to be among the happiest in the world due to the holistic approach to life and the amount of importance which is placed on the well being of people and communities, as much as material wealth.
For everyone, the day is a useful reminder that in general happiness does not necessarily come from buying and consuming, or from being famous or glamorous – but often from friends, family and emotional well being. Internationally, there are many events and websites in which people may participate.

Happy St Patrick's Day- March 17th 2018



Saint Patrick's Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig, "the Day of the Festival of Patrick"), is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.

cakes by @justataste on Instagram

Saint Patrick's Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, cèilidhs, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. Christians who belong to liturgical denominations also attend church services and historically the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday's tradition of alcohol consumption.


Saint Patrick's Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador (for provincial government employees), and the British Overseas Territory of Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world, especially in the United Kingdom, Canada, United States, Brazil, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand. Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival. Modern celebrations have been greatly influenced by those of the Irish diaspora, particularly those that developed in North America. In recent years, there has been criticism of Saint Patrick's Day celebrations for having become too commercialised and for fostering negative stereotypes of the Irish people- source- wiki.com

Happy Mothers Day- March 11th 2018



Just the other day we were celebrating "Women's Day", today we are celebrating Mother's Day aka "Mothering Sunday", also a womans day.. Aren't we special hey :-)

What is this special day all about???

Well Mothering Sunday is a celebration held to honour mums and maternal figures.
The day has evolved into an occasion for kids to honour and give presents to their hardworking mums.
In the UK, it was originally linked to religion but has since lost a lot of its connections to the church and is mainly a family day.

Why does the UK have a different Mother's Day to the US?
In the UK, the original event had nothing to do with mothers at all and it was a day for Christians to visit their "mother" church.
In the past, domestic servants were given the day off to return to their hometown and worship with their families.
On their way home, these youths would pick wild flowers to place in the church - or give to their mums.
The US event was launched separately and was not linked to religion but was dedicated entirely to mothers.

Why is Mother's Day celebrated on different dates around the world?

In America, Mother's Day was established in 1914 - thanks to campaigns by the mums' groups which were established during the Civil War.
Anna Jarvis, the leader of this movement, campaigned for a May date in memory of her own mum - who had died that month.
President Wilson formalised the date, but Anna later became dissatisfied with the commercialisation around Mother's Day.
She believed the original sentiment of love and family had been sacrificed for profit.
She said: "A printed card means nothing except that you are too lazy to write to the woman who has done more for you than anyone in the world."
Many other countries have since adopted America's date.

Why does the date of Mother's Day change each year?

Mothering Sunday in the US is an annual holiday held on the second Sunday in May, so the date slightly varies each year.
In the UK, the date is linked to Easter, which is different each year as it is determined by the lunar calendar.
The UK's Mother's Day always falls on the fourth Sunday during the period of Lent, when people typically give up things like certain foods or bad habits for the days leading up to Easter. some of this source is from thesun.co.uk

I hope the above has given you a good understanding as to why this day is such a special day for all mums and maternal figures out there.

Happy International Women's Day- March 8th 2018


Today, 8th March is International Women’s Day. Marked for well over a century, International Women's Day is now a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. IWD is not country, group or organisation specific, it is a day that belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.

Here is a little prayer from me to all women "May the men in your life do more to protect, heal and be real with you. May the unity amongst you and your sisters grow stronger and may you never need a man to validate your crown. You are appreciated🌹"
