Big Girls, Small Kitchen: Baking For Good

BGSK Blondie

We’ve mentioned Big Girls, Small Kitchen before. Not only do we love their site, but we also love their recipes. Now, we also love their generous spirit!

Between now and Mothers Day, BGSK has teamed up with Baking For Good to support of The Valerie Fund, a nonprofit that provides support for the comprehensive healthcare of children with cancer and blood disorders. You can show your support by purchasing a dozen (or more!) of their delicious-looking BGSK Peanut M&M Blondies which are available on the Baking for Good site as part of a blog-wide Virtual Bake Sale.

Now that’s sweet.

Happy Earth Day!

Veggies

By now, you have probably heard the phrase: “Think Globally. Act Locally.” We think Earth Day comes at a great time of year to embrace this mantra, especially when it comes to the food we eat. This Earth Day, we want to encourage our readers to get excited about the upcoming abundance of local foods that will be cropping up soon.

It’s that time of year when Farmers Markets are kicking off their summer season, and we suggest that your “Earth Day Resolution” includes visiting these markets on a regular basis to get to know your local foods, try some new ones, and actually meet the farmers in your area.

What to go a step further? Sign up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and have your very own farmerís market delivered to your door (or available for pick-up). Search for one near you on LocalHarvest.org.
