virtual baby shower


Food can be many things: It can be, simply, sustenance, or, more whimsically, it can be art, or, more urgently, it can be medicine. Food can be tenderness and care and attention. It can be utter play and abandon. It can be revenge and anger and sorrow. And, in the words of the anonymous young woman behind Bread Face Blog, “Everything about food…is very sexual.” Food is a reflection of every aspect of human existence. After all, without food, there is no human life.

Today—and, miraculously, these spiced caramel chocolate nut clusters—is about going back to the source, the beginning, to honor mother and fatherhood. Two very sweet things are happening today: The first is the Virtual Cheese Baby Shower for Sarah Snixy of the gorgeous blog Snixy Kitchen, thrown by the amazing Alanna of Bojon Gourmet and Todd of HonestlyYUM. The second is my father’s birthday. Today! Happy birthday, Dad!!

Which brings us to these chocolatey caramely nutty clusters of love.

There are 400 jellybeans in each of these two jars. Every day 800 mothers around the world will die in childbirth. Today The Liya Kebede Foundation is throwing me a very special virtual baby shower where, instead of presents for #babyconran, we want you to give the gift of life to these women. Together we can #save800moms today and make this an amazing baby shower we will all remember.
