If you’ve been in the blogosphere for long enough you’ve almost undoubtedly heard of Lori Lange of RecipeGirl. She recently relaunched another site of hers, Culinary Covers, to which I will be a contributor, along with a whole slew of other awesome bloggers, in the months to come! If you’ve asked yourself whether a given recipe deserves to be on the cover of a cookbook or cooking magazine, then this is definitely the site for you because that’s exactly what we’ll be doing!! For my first post, I made the cover recipe from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook – Tomato Scallion Shortcakes with Whipped Goat Cheese. Head on over to check it out here!
Now, I do realize that Earth Day has passed but we are still in April, which is Earth Month, AND we kind of live on the earth all day every day…so it should really be Earth Day 365 days a year. Recently, I stumbled across this fun site that Whole Foods has put together to celebrate Earth Month – EarthlingMonth.comhttp://earthlingmonth.com/. Basically, this site is a collection of photos, tweets and videos that give a snapshot of all the things people are doing around the world to celebrate Earth Month, no matter how small or significant that action is. It really is a celebration of earth’s beauty and bounty as well as an inspiring snapshot of all that is going on at a given moment in time to inspire change and maintain our planet’s beauty. To participate, feel free to upload a photo, tweet, or video here or tweet or instagram using the hashtag #WFMearthling.
In addition, there are a series of fun Earth Month-centered events going on at Whole Foods this month. For instance, I know at my local Whole Foods there have been awesome events centering around Earth Month including interactive classes and sales on eco-friendly spring cleaning products. To encourage you to head on over to your local Whole Foods and check out what’s been going on, Whole Foods has been kind enough to give me a $25 WHOLE FOODS GIFT CARD to give away to one of you guys! All you have to do to enter is leave a comment telling me what you’ve done to celebrate Earth Month (or something that you plan to do). I will choose a winner next Tuesday!
