Many of you reading this blog today are doing so as a part of Share Our Strength's Share Our Holiday Table...I commend you! For those of you, however, that may have stumbled here by the graces of fate, please know that you are taking part in a phenomenal virtual dinner comprised of 50 bloggers from across the country designed to help raise awareness for childhood hunger in America and Share Our Strength, the nation's leading organization committed to ending childhood hunger in the U.S. by 2015.
The hope is that each reader will not only find wonderful recipes, but gain the knowledge and understanding of an enormous problem our country faces...childhood hunger. More than 50 million Americans struggle to put food on the table. More than 17 million of those affected are children. I ask that you take from this blog, a recipe yes, but more importantly the knowledge that you too can make a difference. I encourage every reader to explore the campaigns Share Our Strength offers. You will find that there really is something for anyone who wants to make a difference be it attending a Taste Of The Nation or Great American Bake Sale, eating at a favorite local restaurant as part of Great American Dine Out or being involved online through the No Kid Hungry campaign. Childhood hunger is a problem that can be fixed. We at Cookie Central have taken the No Kid Hungry Pledge... will you?
Thank you for taking the time to read our blog and thank you for participating in Share Our Strength's Share Our Holiday Table.
|I believe that no child in America should go hungry. |
By pledging today, I add my voice to the
national movement of people committed to
ending childhood hunger in America by 2015.
With the holidays in full swing it's my pleasure to share with you a recipe that has meandered it's way into the hearts of my family and friends and is a staple to almost every party I host....Potato Leek Soup! My love affair with this soup started almost 10 years ago in an Irish pub tucked down a city alley. For almost a year, I would sit every Saturday morning dipping brown bread into an enormous bowl of this rich and creamy goodness. The pub eventually closed, leaving me feeling a little lost...and very motivated. I spent months trying to replicate the soup I loved, until I eventually stumbled across a recipe that surpassed that of my beloved pub soup.
- 5lbs. Yukon Potatoes peeled and cubed
