did someone say s'mores?

Thursday, January 28, 2010

irv is the biggest s'mores lover i've ever met. so as soon as he saw a recipe for s'mores cupcakes on bakerella it wasn't long before we were in the kitchen baking up a batch of our own. of course they weren't complete 'till they were topped with some marshmallow frosting! not bad for our first time, i'd say.
find the cupcake recipe here. and don't forget the frosting! you can find it here.

its been roughly 15 days since the tragic earthquake in haiti. progress is being made to rebuild the country, but HAITI STILL NEEDS HELP! i'm sure you've all donated by now, but please continue to give in any way you can. here are just a few of the many, many ways to help out.

Craft Hope for Haiti - shop in an etsy store filled with donated handmade goods with 100% of sales going to Doctors Without Borders.

Help Haiti Rise - an amazing tee designed by mike fretto, with 100% of sales going to Partners in Health.

or, if you're in either the DC or SLO areas go to one of these benefit concerts and enjoy an evening of music and more! both, i'm sure are going to be amazing.

these are just a few of the thousands of ways you can help. and if you ever happen to feel hopeless, just pray and pray and remember that everything is in God's hands.
