Around the Internet Kitchen: Help

I’m sure you probably know this but there was a devastating earthquake in Haiti this week, a tragedy that puts most daily concerns and worries into perspective.

There’s been a lot of ways to donate to the relief effort being passed around the Internet over the last few days. Turns out that social networking is good for something!

One of the easiest (and novel) ways to donate is through the American Red Cross. You can just text the word “Haiti” to 90999. $10 will be charged to your next cell phone bill and all the money goes straight to the relief effort. I tried this and it seemed to work. I guess I’ll know for sure when I get my bill. Of course, you can also just go to

Over at Endless simmer they had a great post a few days ago detailing a few other ways you can donate to the relief effort.

This week’s Poll:

And a few links!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles – When I was growing up, or actually whenever I get the chance, cookie dough is one of my favorite things. Raw cookie dough is just one of those completely indulgent things that can’t help but make you smile. (@ Love and Olive Oil)

Tangerine Chicken – Whoa man. This is an awesome video. You know the only thing more awesome than this video on how to make a proper stir fry? It’s the crazy wok. I need that in my house. I’m not really sure when that’s gonna be a possibility for me, but mark my words, I will someday own such a thing. (@ Ruhlman)

Chicken, Bean and Spinach Enchiladas – I haven’t had a good enchilada in awhile so this post caught my eye this week. Totally want these. (@ Good Life Eats)

Cinnamon Churros – It’s possible that this is one of my favorite fried things of all time and yes that includes both donuts and funnel cakes. (@ The Purple Foodie)

Have a good weekend everyone and if you have a few bucks, help out the Haitian relief work.

  1. Just want to say I agree with you that the Red Cross is one of the best vehicles for helping out with Haiti, and humanitarian disasters everywhere.
