the truck has been traveling across the U.S. since 2014 offering different sweets and treats like macrons, cookies, and cakes. Fans of the brand can also purchase merchandise like shirts, sprinkle mugs, and thermal bottles.

4. When you think of Michigan State University, it's not really an awesome collection of cookbooks that comes to mind.

Marilyn and Shiela Brass from Cambridge Massachusetts- nicknamed the Brass Sisters- had a PBS show called "Food Flirts." For 40 years they collected all kinds of old cookbooks from estate sales, flea markets, and anywhere sales were happening.

When they reached out to MSU to see if the library would like to purchase their collection of cookbooks, the university staff couldn't resist. The school got 6500 items from the sisters, 100 of which were one-of-a-kind, handwritten pieces of culinary history.

The rare collection is a glimpse into the history of the average American kitchen and the women who worked in them. The Brass Sisters say they were honored to have been the stewards of these recipes for years, and are pleased MSU will continue to preserve the historic recipes.

5. With the cold, wet weather Michigan has been having, it's time to fire up the oven and bake a pot pie for National Great American Pot Pie Day.

The dish is an American version of European meat pies and usually contains some type of protein, a variety of veggies, and a creamy gravy all inside a golden brown pastry crust.

Celebrate by enjoying a nice warm pot pie at a restaurant or from scratch or frozen at home.
