I've found a few interesting sites lately that I wanted to share with you:
*Love this--next month, you can dine at a participating restaurant and some of the proceeds will be donated to end childhood hunger. (Obviously, you could also make a cash donation at any point to a program like this, but I thought this was a cool idea and a way to support businesses who are in turn supporting such a great cause!) Click here to find a participating restaurant near you.
*Did you know you can download a font that uses less ink than the usual Times Roman, Arial, etc.? Fascinating! Head over here to check it out.
*If you walk, run, swim or bike, then you have to check out this site. You can log your trekked miles and raise money for great causes like breast cancer research! I signed up in honor of my DAD, who just registered for yet another marathon (on Labor Day)!
*One of my favorite new sites is this one. I've had fun sending personalized (and free!) thank you notes for casual get-togethers. I also made special photo slideshows for the grandmas for Mother's Day. Cute designs, easy to use, and eco-friendly since it saves on paper and postage!
Now that I've shared a few of my new discoveries, I'd like to request your input on something:
We occasionally make pancakes on weekend mornings, usually with my husband's family recipe. (You can find that recipe here, along with my admission of pancake-phobia.) We recently decided to make a batch of "regular" pancakes, unfortunately made from store-bought Bisquick. Their taste and texture left something to be desired, but I was going for quick and easy. Thus, I'm wondering if any of you have tried-and-true recipes for homemade pancake mix? I'd love to keep a big jar of it handy!
Thanks for your help, and let me know if you check out any of the sites I mentioned above.
