    Everyday is a holiday somewhere in It's the perfect place to try out all those recipes so come join in with your friends icon_exclaim.gif

    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"!

    April 1st is Sourdough Bread Day, it is not clear where or when sourdough bread day started. But it is believed Sourdough likely originated in Ancient Egypt about 1500 BC.

    There is no doubt that the best sourdough bread is made from true San Francisco yeast cultures, prepared in the French-style baking method. San Francisco sourdough is the most famous sourdough bread made in the U.S. There are some San Francisco variety that have remained in continuous production since the 1849 California Gold Rush. It is a white bread characterized by a chew crust with a soft center that has a pronounced sourness (not all varieties of sourdough are as sour as true San Francisco sourdough), so much so that the dominant strain of lactobacillus in sourdough starters was named Lactobacillus sanfranciscensis.

    April 16th is Eggs Benedict Day. There is conflicting accounts as to the origin of Eggs Benedict, including:

    In an interview recorded in the "Talk of the Town" column of The New Yorker in 1942, the year before his death, Lemuel Benedict, a retired Wall Street stock broker, claimed that he had wandered into the Waldorf Hotel in 1894 and, hoping to find a cure for his morning hangover, ordered "buttered toast, poached eggs, crisp bacon, and a hooker of hollandaise." Oscar Tschirky, the famed maître d'hôtel, was so impressed with the dish that he put it on the breakfast and luncheon menus but substituted ham for the bacon and a toasted English muffin for the toast.

    Another account of the name "Eggs Benedict," however, originated in the eighteenth century. Pope Benedict XIII was so fond of a particular egg dish, that he requested it very often. It is also believed that Benedict XIII had an illness which contributed to his desire for the egg dish. Either way, the "Eggs Benedict" can be traced as far back as the eighteenth century. some info taken from Wikipedia

    April 24th is Pigs-In-A-Blanket Day which varies greatly depending on where you live. In the United Kingdom, pigs-in-a-blanket are small sausages wrapped in bacon. In Israel, kids enjoy Moshe Ba'Teiva (Moses in the Ark), which are miniature hot dogs rolled in a ketchup-covered puff pastry and baked in the oven. In the United States, pigs-in-a-blanket are sausages wrapped in biscuit or croissant dough and baked until golden brown.

    As a rule pigs-in-a-blanket are served as an appetizer or snack but the term “pigs in a blanket” also refers to sausage link with a pancake wrapped around it and served for breakfast. Despite rumors that pigs-in-a-blanket were invented 1957, fact is field laborers in the England 1600′s had what was essentially the same dish. Putting meat inside of dough was an obvious solution for a quick and nourishing meal on the go.
