Around this time of year, one of the things that I look forward to the most is spending time with my family. As I read this blog post this week, I was struck by the fact that there are so many kids out there that don't have a family to celebrate the holidays with (if you know me, you know this is a subject close to my heart). So it makes me extra-thankful that I am able to enjoy the loving family that I do have. It also makes me feel compelled to speak out for those who have no one to care for them.
Maria's Big House of Hope (MBHOH) in China, as a special care facility for orphans with medical needs; it was named in loving memory of their youngest daughter, Maria (go to their website--here--for more information on this).
This week a blog post was written about the preschoolers at MBHOH, and how they love experimenting in the kitchen. They asked for readers to post simple, yummy recipes that are kid-friendly, to help give ideas for the nannies who take care of the kids. I shared an adaption of my recipe for one-bowl blueberry muffins. If you are reading this, and have any easy recipes that kids love to make and eat, please feel free to share it on the blog.
