What Can We


I love easy recipes that are nutritious and taste good! And I love being able to support local charities. I get really excited when I can do both, which is why I was thrilled to purchase the Kitchen Rescue Cookbook! Proceeds from this cookbook go toward supporting What Can We. photo (2)



WhatCanWe.org™ started in 2012 to raise awareness and funds for licensed, nonprofit animal rescues in order to help offset the financial hardships most currently endure due to overwhelming veterinary expenses.

Today, every 1.5 seconds a homeless animal’s life is terminated in a shelter.  That’s 40 animals every minute and nearly 2,400 animals each hour.  Fortunately, there is an army of benevolent rescue organizations that are on the front lines battling every day in an effort to positively change these numbers.

This is a beautiful book that not only contains tons of yummy recipes, but adorable pictures of owners and their pets as well! If you have an animal lover in your life, this would be the perfect gift!
