Like so many things, the way we eat changes along with society. Trends come and go, and then come full circle again as we realize that the way people ate 100 years ago actually was the healthiest way to go.

Guest Post – Social Club Dinner {Support Local Food Banks}

Food Bank

Photo of a north Texas food bank, courtesy of Social Club Dinner. A while ago I shared a recipe for Savory Rosemary Shortbread Cookies + Creamy Whipped Feta with Rosemary on Social Club Dinner, and today I am thrilled to welcome them to An Edible Mosaic! The topic for discussion is something no one really likes to talk about, but one that definitely needs addressing: hunger....

Black Bean Burger Dinner {$.96 Per Serving!} for Food Bloggers Against Hunger #takeyourplace

DSC_3436(small)

Today’s post is dedicated to helping feed those in need. We don’t have to look as far as you might think to find hunger…did you know that in the U.S. nearly 1 in 5 children live in households that don’t know where their next meal is coming from? That’s 16.2 million kids struggling with hunger in this country alone. Millions of Americans are limited to spending an average of only $3 to $4 per day on food through the food stamp program. With that in mind, I wanted to come up with a healthy dinner recipe to feed a family of 4 for $4 or […]...

Bakery-Style Frosted Brownies {And the Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy & Helping Those in Need}

brownies(small)

I thought I knew about the destruction and havoc that natural disasters could wreak. I’m familiar with snowstorms that come bearing five-foot-high-walls of snow, and personally knowing people (dear family and friends) who have been snowed onto the highway for two or three days straight, with little or no food or water, no place to go to the bathroom, and no way to contact loved ones once their cell phones die. And I lived in Florida for three years during law school, so I’m no stranger to hurricanes either. But this was a real wake-up call. Hurricane Sandy has affected so many people, in ways […]...

An Online Bake Sale for Suzie

suzie-fundraiser2

I know it’s going back a while, but do you remember my Snickercrinkle Cookies? What about my Florentine Lace Cookies? (That second one is really going back…I barely remember them myself!) If you were intrigued by either of those recipes and would like to try them without having to make them, you are in luck. I’m participating in an online bake sale hosted by Veronica (of Veronica’s Cornucopia) to help raise money for Suzie (of Two Dogs in the Kitchen), a fellow blogger who needs help paying her medical bills. (If you want, you can read more about Suzie here.) Or if you’d like to […]...

‘Tis the Season…

little-present

For giving!  :) I want to thank Natalie who initiated the incredible Project Feed Me, which was a nine-week-long food drive.  Participants in this project purchased two food items a week for nine weeks.  The program just ended this past Monday, and now comes the fun part…taking the food to the local food bank! The very sweet Krista is participating in a great project called Cans 4 Comments.  For every comment that Krista gets on this post until tonight at midnight, she’ll donate one food item to her local food bank.  Please stop by and comment! The fabulous Holly is raising money to help build a well in […]...

Hunger is Closer to Home Than You Think

Imagine Seeing All of This Food Every Day and Still Going to Bed Hungry...

Hunger in America   It’s hard to believe that in a land where food and drink seem to be so plentiful, 36 million Americans do not know where their next meal will come from.  In the state of New York alone, 9.8% of people suffer from food insecurity.  It boggles my mind to think that almost 1 out of 10 people I know could be going to bed hungry.    Over 12 million children in the U.S. are growing up hungry.  The physical, mental, and emotion consequences of hunger are devastating, especially on children, and include the following:  weakened immune system, cognitive and behavior developmental […]...
