With the season of giving freshly upon us, Share Our Strength — a national nonprofit organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America — and its No Kid Hungry campaign is leading #GivingTuesday tomorrow, Tuesday, Dec. 2. It’s a one-day, all-day give-a-thon committed to providing breakfast and more meals for kids.
Thanks to fans’ support, last year’s #GivingTuesday raised enough money to provide more than 500,000 meals to children, and No Kid Hungry hopes to double that number this year, but they need your support to do so. When you donate $10, you’ll be providing 100 meals for a child in America; plus, No Kid Hungry will match your tax-deductible gift, up to $50,000.
How to get involved? Pledge your support for No Kid Hungry, and on #GivingTuesday, visit NoKidHungry.org/GivingTuesday to donate and join the cause.

Just because Thanksgiving is behind us doesn’t mean apple season is over. If you’re still craving the crisp, sweet-tart flavors of autumn’s apples, look to this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week, an easy-to-make twist on a classic apple dessert.
While apple pies often require you to hand-mix the dough for the crust, then roll it out and form it to a pan, the Neelys’ Apple Crisp (pictured above) simply features a cinnamon-laced fruit filling and a fuss-free crumble topping. Just sprinkle this buttery pecan-sugar mixture atop the apples before baking for a go-to treat.

The key to a successful Thanksgiving appetizer is simplicity: a fuss-free bite or two that will satisfy guests but not overfill them before the feast and, of course, be easy for the host to prepare, as he or she will likely be busy with other last-minute dinner prep.

Giada De Laurentiis’ quick-fix Fried Ravioli can be ready in just 30 minutes, and they come together with just a handful of ingredients, including timesaving store-bought ravioli.
