Five Fun Things on Friday (12-4-09)
Fun Thing #2: The Blogger Aid Cookbook
Fun Thing #3: Passports with a Purpose
Passports with a Purpose is organized by my friend Pam from Nerd’s Eye View, who had banded together with her fellow travel bloggers to raise money, this year to help build a school in Cambodia. The idea is familiar, spend $10 to buy raffle tickets and then bid on prizes, but many of these prizes are aimed at travelers rather than food lovers. Read more about Passports with a Purpose at Nerd’s Eye View, and visit the Passports with a Purpose Site to see the prizes and make a donation.
Fun Thing #4: Five Easy Breakfast Upgrates
You know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, don’t you? If your breakfast habits aren’t quite up to par, check out Five Easy Breakfast Upgrades from Happy Healthy Life. This post just might make you re-think your breakfast habits.
Fun Thing #5: Oprah!
Okay, I did sneak in a little mention of this when I posted the Flourless, Sugar-Free Pistachio Cookies, but in case you missed it, Kalyn’s Kitchen is one of four food blogs that have been chosen to be Holiday Bloggers on Oprah.com! That means that recipes posted here will be featured as part of Oprah’s Holiday 2009, and yes, I’m quite excited. Plus this will probably make me work extra hard thinking of good ideas for Christmas recipes, which has to be a very good thing as well! (Edit: Where are my manners? I was so excited last night I forgot to tell you that the other bloggers being featured at Oprah.com are Kath from Kath Eats, Stephanie from A Year of Slow Cooking, and Shauna from Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef. Go team!)
