While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

As Lady Gaga is so fond of saying, cherry cherry boom boom!  May 17 is National Cherry Cobbler Day.

The perfect summer dessert that stays in style all year, cherry cobbler is easy, comforting and a tasty way to enjoy your  fruit serving.  It is one of those cozy desserts that was made to share, so invite some friends or family over to help you lick that dish clean.

Like apple pie, cobblers are often credited as being an American idea because of the creative uses pioneers developed for an abundance of fruit.  Cooking down the sweet surplus and covering it with a crumbly topping was such a favorite for pioneers (and okay, maybe Mother England's folk were doing it too), they often served it as the main course for dinner or breakfast.  Now, that's worthy of a hallelujah!

Whether you go biscuit-basedcrunchy crumbles or even a little bit of rock 'n' roll  for the topping, honor your ancestors by picking up some cheery cherries and baking up a big pan.

    Man. I came here on the wrong day. No fair showing me all this delicious sweet stuff when it's far too stormy to run out at lunch and pick up something.

    I LOVE cherries. My only problem is, if I buy a pound, I must eat the entire pound almost immediately. It's a vicious cycle that lasts the entire summer.
