Today’s goofy holiday is National Cherry Cobbler Day!! Joe is a big cobbler fan, especially peach and cherry, his two favorites.

But why the name cobbler? A recent article on shared that cobbler is usually topped with batter or biscuits instead of crust. Cobbler’s name comes from its sometimes cobbled texture, which is a result of spooning or dropping the topping over the fruit rather than distributing it equally. This way, the filling can peek through.

Yes, please.

Look at this black cherry cobbler! Find the recipe here.

It’s also World Telecommunication Day, This day is a reminder of how important communication is in our lives and it got its start in 1969 when the International Telecommunication Union was founded. Read more about it HERE
