We welcome everyone to "EVERYDAY IS A HOLIDAY"
Everyday is a holiday somewhere in Food.com. It's the perfect place to try out all those recipes so come join in with your Food.com friends
Rules for jumping into the Holiday game:
1. Find out who is "IT".
2. Tag one of their recipes that you have not previously reviewed (doesn't matter how many times the recipe has been reviewed by others)
3. Tagging the same recipe in multiple games is not allowed. But this does not prevent players from using their tags for the Photo Forum or special events in other forums.
4. Make & review that recipe within two weeks from the date of your tag. When you chose to tag someone’s recipe, you are committing to making that recipe and reviewing it within 2 weeks (14 days). We realize life sometimes does get in the way of our cooking/tagging, so if you aren’t going to be able to meet the 2 week deadline, please ask us for a additional 2 week extension. Players will be put on the Restricted List once they have passed the 4 weeks (28 days) deadline, unless they have special circumstances. If you feel you have a special circumstance preventing you from completing a tag within 4 weeks, please contact the game host. Once on the Restricted List, you will no longer be able to participate in any of the games or events in the “Cooking Games with Friends Forum” until you have made and reviewed any recipes that have you on that list. This is done in order to keep it fair for all players in the games.
5. Report back to this thread to say you've made the recipe so we can update the "completed"!
****To make our job easier, if everyone could follow this posting format, it would be much appreciated !****

The second week of January is National Pizza week
But what makes a pizza and where did it come from?
It is hard to say where and when pizza came about but we know that the Ancient Greeks were topping flat bread with herbs, onion and garlic. We also know that in 16th century Naples flatbread covered with red sauce was a common street food, than in 1889 cheese was added leading to the creation of the first Margherita pizza made to resemble the Italian flag, red (tomato), white (mozzarella cheese) and green (basil) and was named for Queen Margherita during her visit to Naples in 1889.
We now have pizzas that are baked, fire roasted, and savory and yes even sweet dessert pizzas. So with 5,571 pizza recipes here at Food you are sure to find a tasty way to celebrate this week long holiday.

January 27 is National Chocolate Cake Day
Nobody seems to know who created National Chocolate Cake Day or even exactly when it got started but it has been around for some years.
But chocolate cake seems to be a favored dessert for celebrations, birthday parties and general gatherings as it is a favored dessert for many children and adults alike.
Chocolate cakes vary significantly due to the wide variety of chocolates and cocoas used. Popular variants: Chocolate Layer Cake, Devil's Food Cake, Flourless Chocolate Cake, German Chocolate Cake, Black Forest Cake, Molten Chocolate Cake, Red Velvet Cake, Sachertorte, and of course the popuar Fudge Cake. clicking on cake type will link you to recipes
