Founded in 1881 by Clara Barton, the American Red Cross was chartered by Congress in 1900 to provide national and international relief during disasters. It also provides relief to the military and facilitates communication between the Armed Forces and their families. The first Red Cross Month was proclaimed in 1943 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and has been so proclaimed by every president thereafter.
Our local American Red Cross is located at 2700 Southwest Freeway, Houston, Texas 77098 and can be reached by calling 713-526-8300. To donate or to participate in the numerous programs they currently have ongoing check out www.houstonredcross.org.
I had a package of silken tofu in my refrigerator for weeks before I finally decided to try baking it. We were pleasantly surprised by how moist and good this cake tasted because it contains no dairy or egg products. This is a vegan recipe. Also, rather than use a lime glaze (as suggested in the original recipe), I decided to melt chocolate over it – Yum!
