NATIONAL MOM AND POP BUSINESS OWNERS DAY
National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day is observed annually on March 29th. This day honors all small business owners.
Small businesses are a vital part of the United States economy. These businesses are not always appreciated, as they should be, for the vital role that they play. We can show them their much deserved appreciation on National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day.
Owning your own business is a goal that many people strive for. It takes long hours, hard work and much dedication. Countless hours of nurturing the business are needed in the process of growing the business, while following the owners desire of reaching their goal in having a successful business venture.
Some of these businesses are handed down from one generation to the next while others are new start-ups. “Mom and Pop” businesses generally offer superior customer service as the owners take personal pride in their operations as well as pride in their communities.
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, there are more than 27 million small businesses in the United States.
To celebrate, support the privately owned small businesses in your communities.

NATIONAL LEMON CHIFFON CAKE DAY
Lemon Chiffon Cake Day is celebrated annually on March 29th.
For a nice refreshing spring dessert, chiffon cake is a very light cake made with vegetable oil, eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder, and flavorings. A fluffy texture is made by beating egg whites until stiff and folding them into the cake batter before baking. Chiffon cakes tend to be lower in saturated fat than butter cakes, potentially making them healthier than their butter-heavy counterparts.
“The chiffon cake was invented in 1927 by Harry Baker, a California insurance salesman turned caterer. Baker kept the recipe secret for 20 years until he sold it to General Mills. At this point the name was changed to “chiffon cake” and a set of 14 recipes and variations was released to the public in a Betty Crocker pamphlet published in 1948.” (Wikipedia)
This would be a good day to find a recipe, that you love, for Lemon Chiffon Cake and bake up a delicious dessert to enjoy.
