The return of fruitcake, fruitcrack.

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

Oops. I did it again. Before I get into another fruitcake story, a reminder that Menu For Hope ends this Friday and we’ve already raised $44,000. Or rather, we’ve only raised $44,000. We can do better! Go! Go and bid right now! Just don’t go and bid on what I bid on because I wanna […]

Monday, December 10th, 2007

It’s back! Last year’s Menu for Hope raffle raised more than $60,000 for the UN World Food Programme.

This year another teeming army of knife-wielding food bloggers has donated awesomely shiny raffle gifts to raise money for the United Nations World Food Programme. Even I’m participating, though I’m […]
