Frigidaire and Jennifer Garner team up for Save the Children

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone is doing well, The rain is still coming down here in Fl but I still think it's much better than 10 below 0 and snow that my family in Indiana is having. As part of the Foodbuzz team I have been contacted to help spread the word about raising money for Save the Children and to rediscover the fun of cooking together… and do some good, too

Frigidaire and Jennifer Garner ( ) are teaming up to inspire families everywhere to get together in the kitchen and start cooking together. Starting today, parents can join in the Frigidaire Kids' Cooking Academy to get great recipes. It's the ultimate parent resource,featuring daily tips, tasty recipes and how-to videos starring chef and TV personality Mary Sue Milliken. All designed to help involve kids in the kitchen.

When they do, Frigidaire will donate $1 to Save the Children to help make sure that more children have access to healthy foods. and promote healthier lifestyles for children living in poverty in the United States.

Plus, to help spread the word, everyone who participates will be entered for a chance to win the daily prize, a kids' apron set, and the grand prize: a new Double Oven Range from Frigidaire.
Here is my own Kid friendly recipe for you to try:


1 coffee mug
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp oil

4tbsp. flour 3 tbsp choc. chips

4tbsp. sugar some nuts--optional

2tbsp baking cocoa small splash of vanilla

1 egg

Add dry ingredients to mug & mix well. Pour in milk, oil & egg & mix well. Add chips, nuts if using & vanilla, mix well. Place mug in microwave & cook for 3 min. on high. Allow to cool a little & tip out on plate if desired. Enjoy!!

So lets get cookin'! Head to and get inspired to cook with your kids.
I'm also asking all of you to send this post to all your friends and family. Together we can help raise money for Save the Children. No Child should go hungry.

Thanks for all your help.
Thanks to Everyone

My Aunt Shirley gave this recipe to my mom a long time ago and I remember my mom baking this cake often,  When we went to Erie last fall to visit, my Aunt brought this cake over and it brought back so many memories,  It's super easy to make and I think you all will enjoy it as much as we do.

Applesauce Bundt Cake.

1 box yellow cake mix
1-11/2 cups applesauce--cinnamon flavored is really good in this

Mix all together & pour half of batter in prepared bundt pan. mix 1/4 cup sugar with some cinnamon & sprinkle over batter, add rest of batter.Bake at  350 for about 50 min. or till toothpick comes out clean. I butter and  dust the pan with sugar instead of flour. My mom added chunks of butter & chopped walnuts with the cinnamon sugar mixture.  Dust with powder sugar when cool. Enjoy!!

Well it's going to be in the 30's again this week I really think i should move further south (Ha Ha)
