'Tis the season for giving and there is much giving on the web.
First, there's the Menu for Hope organized by Pim. This is the third year running. Last year the event raised $17,000 for Unicef. This year, the recipient is the UN World Food Program. Bloggers from all over the world are participating. Prizes include experiences with famous chefs and food folks, meals from all over the world, cookbooks, tasty treats (many handmade by bloggers) and tools. Each $10 donation lets you claim one raffle ticket for a wide range of prizes. Browse for prizes on Chez Pim. Simply roll over the photos with your mouse.
Looking for a unique gift? You can order a wall calendar from Habeas Brulee. The pix are gorgeous and the recipes sound tasty.
Looking to make your own gift? How about Preserved Meyer Lemons from Pickle Girl? Better start now. You might already be a bit late for the holidays.
And the students are getting into the act. At Better Than Ramen the grad students are making caramels.
