Spooky Halloween Graveyard that You can Eat!

For Halloween, how would you like to make a spooky graveyard complete with dirt and tomb stones ... that you can eat? Here's how!

Linda's Easy Chocolate Cake

This is an old family recipe that came from my great-aunt Linda. No eggs are needed and we've replaced the original oil ingredient for a healthy replacement: all-natural applesauce. This recipe makes one 8x8 cake. Double the recipe for a 13x9 cake.

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 tablespoons all-natural, no sugar added applesauce
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Mix together flour, sugar, baking soda and cocoa. Blend together with water, applesauce and vinegar until creamy. Bake at 350 degrees for 25
- 30 minutes.

Do Something Book Signing

Hello everyone! We'd like share an exciting update on a great cause that Lizzie has been working diligently for.

Two years ago, Lizzie received the honor of earning a grant from the Do Something foundation in NYC for her Tasty Tidbits project. Lizzie teaches adults and youth how to have a delicious time preparing fresh, fun and healthy meals while creating healthier communities. Do Something just published a book (click here for details) and Lizzie is one of the featured youth.

The book tour came to Atlanta today, October 19th. Lizzie spoke to students of Inman Middle School in Atlanta to inspire other young people to take action to improve their communities. She had a great time signing books with Do Something CTO, George Weiner.
