Snap Cup

“Snap Cup Time, Snap Cup Time. Gather ye round friends and foe together united and bound. Pass it to your neighbor instead of blowing up and we’ll find harmony and love in the old Snap Cup.”

In the movie, “Legally Blonde,” Reese Witherspoon’s character, Elle Woods, tries to bring people together by using a Snap Cup. Whenever people are arguing or feeling down, the Snap Cup can unite them or make them feel better. Everyone writes down a compliment or something nice about someone else and puts the piece of paper in the Snap Cup. Then the uplifting messages are read aloud. This Snap Cup is for all the people who have nice things to say about The “V” Word as well as awards, affirmations and accolades. I feel better already 🙂

The Peace Patch Blog


The Peace Patch : Veganizing the World One Day at a Time is such a great blog! Everyday they celebrate a food holiday – National Cupcake Day or National Blueberry Scone Day – and they do it by highlighting a different blog each day. That’s such a wonderful way to give exposure to the many blogs out there trying to spread the yummy vegan word.

I was honored to be chosen on National Artichoke Day! I didn’t even realize I had that many recipes with artichokes in them…but I do love ’em. Thank you for honoring me, The Peace
