St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a haven for children with cancer and their families. Each year, St. Jude holds a Give Thanks Walk (5K) to raise funds to end childhood cancer. Joe and I are walking this year – if you haven’t read my first post it’s here. The Give Thanks Walk is being held in on Saturday, November 21st in over 40 cities so there’s a good chance you can participate, too. It’s free to register.
After my initial plea for help, I’ve received 49 of the best kid-friendly recipes from the blogosphere and have compiled an e-book to help raise funds for the walk. Here’s a break-down of what’s in the book:
- 13 main dishes
- 5 side dishes
- 7 breads, quick breads, and muffins
- 10 desserts
- 14 recipes that are A Whole Lot of Fun! (This is my favorite section – Holiday Beverages, homemade lollipops, homemade play dough, snack mixes kids can make and more!)
Mother Theresa said “We can do no great things, only small things with great love.” This is one of those small things done with great love that will make a difference. Thank you to all of the generous bloggers and readers who took the time to submit fabulous recipes. A special thanks to Lauren of Celiac Teen who took a very special interest in this project and helped make it possible. I am in awe of the way everyone came together to help support a very worthy cause.
