Sweetest Day is Saturday and while we have always been skeptical of this seemingly faux holiday, we did come across one story about its origins that made us feel there might be something in it.

Some say that it was started by a Cleveland philanthropist who wanted to show orphans, invalids, and under-privileged people that they were not forgotten. He would bring them small gifts and sweets on this newly created holiday.

Others chalk up its creation to a syndicate of candy-makers and other businessmen. Either way, though, it seems like this weekend is a good time to make something sweet - for yourself or for others! Is there a sweet recipe you've been wanting to try out?
