Go to their Go Red for Women web site and sign up to access great heart health resources as well as Heart-Healthy Recipes complete with nutritional guides. This "featured" recipe, Berry Topped Pudding Pie, grabbed my attention big time! To quote Rachel Ray, "yummo!" Click on the photo above for the recipe.

Campbell's Soup asked fashion designer Nicole Miller to create three dresses for American Heart Month. Click on the logo above to vote online for your favorite dress and each vote through March 2 will generate $1 to the Go Red campaign. The winning dress will be worn by Jane Krakowski, of the hilarious tv show 30 Rock, at an American Heart Month event. Such a fun way to contribute with just one click!

Don't forget to wear your red on Friday, it's a great day to show off those hot red pumps!


  1. Cute shoes! I didn't see this until now so it was too late to wear red today :(

  2. Oops! I finally posted it after midnight last night, so I thought my "tomorrow" would be on Friday! I started writing it in the afternoon, so I guess that's why it says Wednesday.

    Soooooo, you can still wear red tomorrow!
