What’s In Your Kitchen Wednesday {and #BloggersforSandyHook}

Before I get to this week’s features, I wanted to take a minute to tell you about a way for bloggers and people all over the world to show their tribute and unite in support of Newtown, Connecticut and Sandy Hook Elementary School.

It’s times like these when we feel helpless; we want to DO something but we don’t know what.

On Friday, December 21, 2012, we are going to honor the victims, families, and community of Newtown by doing a post in their honor. Cookies an Crafts for Sandy Hook will be one way we can show support in the aftermath of this unimaginable event.

On Friday, December 21, write a post sharing a cookie or a craft and a tribute to Sandy Hook Elementary School. There is no specific requirement…just do or make something to show your support. Maybe something you would make for, or with, your children.

Please spread the word about this united effort wherever you can. You can use the hashtag #BloggersforSandyHook.

Don’t have a blog? That’s okay. You can still share something for Sandy Hook. Take a picture and post it on your Facebook wall, your Twitter feed. Share on Instagram or your Google+ or wherever you can to unite us in our tribute.

Something people always think about in times like this is how they can help monetarily. After some searching, we found the Newtown Youth and Family Services website. According to their website, Newtown Youth and Family Services, Inc. is a “licensed, non-profit, mental health clinic and youth services bureau dedicated to helping children and families achieve their highest potential. NYFS provides programs, services, activities, counseling, support groups and education throughout the Greater Newtown area.” All donations made to them are going to go back to those affected by the school shooting. You can find their website here.

Thanks to all of the great gals over on the Online BlogCon Facebook group for getting this organized.

    Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies! And I’ve been wanting to make pudding cookies for so long, but keep forgetting. Needed this reminder before the holidays are (officially) here 🙂

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
