Sunday Roundup (Hurricane Sandy Edition)

I can’t tell you how glad I am that this stressful week is over.  DC was lucky to escape the wrath of Hurricane Sandy though several of my local friends are still without power or just now getting it back. I have a lot of family in New York and we haven’t been able to reach everyone.  But things are such a disaster there that it’s entirely possible they’re still without electricity and saving their cell phone charges. If you live anywhere near New York, the best way you can help right now is to donate food, clothing and blankets to those who lost everything.  If you don’t live in the area, this article lists charities working directly with New York, New Jersey and other locations dealing with the aftermath. Donating to any of these organizations will be a huge help.  Please give what you can.

One of the things that kept me sane this week was getting my hands dirty in the kitchen.  I made muffins, cookies, popsicles and a few other treats I’ll share with you next week.

Something else that kept me sane?  Reading beautiful recipes from food bloggers:

Cheers to a new week.

UPDATE:  Everyone is ok!  No power, but all houses are in tact and everyone is safe.  Thanks for the kind words.
