Beat the Drum: How we can help end childhood hunger in America, and then we can do even more.

Every year since I began writing The Perfect Pantry in 2006, I've started the new year here with a plea to work harder to end childhood hunger in America. And every year, I'm sad to report that the number of children living with food insecurity -- not knowing where their next meal is coming from -- has risen.

16 million children. 1 out of every 5 kids in America.

3 easy ways to save your favorite recipes (or, life after Ziplist)

If you've been using Ziplist to save recipes from The Perfect Pantry, and from other favorite blogs and websites, I'm sad to report that the company is closing on December 10, 2014. I just learned this and wanted to share with you as soon as possible, as they will no longer support the recipe box, shopping list, and recipe saving features after December 9.

I have removed the blue "Save Recipes to Ziplist" button from my recipe posts here, as well as the "Recipe Box" link at the top of the page.

How to preserve recipes currently in your Ziplist recipe box

First, download all of the recipes you've stored in your recipe box. You need to do this before December 10, and as it takes just a few minutes, why not do it this weekend? Here's how: http://get.ziplist.com/what-you-need-to-know/.

Ziplist recommends you create a recipe box on Epicurious.com and transfer the recipes you've already saved. It's a great option, and it's free, especially if you already use the Epicurious site to search for new recipes.

I have three additional ideas for you.

Favorite eggplant recipes from The Perfect Pantry {vegetarian, gluten-free}

"Poor little eggplants."

My husband Ted doesn't adore eggplant, so it's not often that I manage to incorporate it into dishes we both enjoy. At this time of year, when we're eating as much corn and tomatoes as we can -- and as much zucchini as we can stand -- it's easy to forget about eggplant, which is also at its peak right now. To make sure you don't pass over eggplant at the farm stand, here are a few of my favorite eggplant recipes, perfect for summer.
