Your hosts are Debbwl and alligirl...
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 !****

January 7 is National Tempura Day
It’s National Tempura Day! Tempura is a delicious deep fried Japanese dish made with lightly battered vegetables and seafood. The original cooking technique is actually attributed to the Portuguese, who landed in Japan in the sixteenth century to establish new trade routes.
The word “tempura” is also related to the European roots of the dish. It comes from the Latin phrase “quattuor tempora” meaning “Ember Days.” This term refers to the days when Catholics eat fish or vegetables instead of meat.
Tempura batter is made with cold water and wheat flour. Some recipes also call for eggs, baking soda, oil, or spices for extra flavoring. A traditional tempura will usually include shrimp, scallops, eggplant, green beans, sweet potato, mushrooms, or bamboo.
To celebrate National Tempura Day, try making your own tempura at home or head out to your favorite Japanese restaurant!
National Hot Buttered Rum Day!
Whether you like a little rum with your butter or a little butter with your rum, today is perfect for rum and butter lovers! A few sips, and you'll feel warm from your head to your toes - and happier than you were just minutes ago.
We've been sipping on this venerable drink since colonial times in America. Once we started importing molasses from Jamaica, distilleries opened across New England in the 1650s. Adding rum to hot drinks like toddies and nogs seemed natural - and thank goodness for that! (There's that inventive American spirit at work again.)
This winter cocktail is exactly what it sounds like: rum, butter, hot water or cider, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and a sweetener of some sort. Simmer up some creamy, spicy and sweet hot buttered vanilla rum for a cheery start to the week.
Whether you're snowed in or stuck at work, anytime is a good time for winter cocktails in January. Check out our Hot Buttered Rum recipes here!
January 19 is National Popcorn Day
It’s National Popcorn Day! Americans eat about 16 billion quarts of popcorn each year (about 51 quarts per person), which makes it one of the most popular snacks in the country. It is also one of the oldest.
Popcorn has been around for centuries. It is one of six main varieties of corn. (The others are pod, sweet, flour, dent, and flint.) Popcorn originated in Mexico, but eventually made its way north. In 1948, archaeologists in the state of New Mexico discovered ancient popcorn ears that were at least 5,600 years old! The Native Americans (in both North and South America) popped their corn by throwing it on hot stones over a fire.
Today, we rely heavily on microwaveable popcorn, which was introduced in the 1980s. To celebrate National Popcorn Day, make your favorite kind of popcorn and enjoy it while watching a movie with your friends!
