Special Visit from Allrecipes.com: Cookies for Charity

Two days before Thanksgiving, I hosted a Drop In & Decorate event with a group of children who decorated cookies for the homeless. I shared some photos, but what I didn’t tell you was that we had a special guest. Michael is the host of What’s Cooking (great minds think alike, right?), the cooking show on Allrecipes.com. For the holidays, they are doing a special event called Cookies Across America. Because they are good people, they are featuring Lydia’s organization, and are encouraging people to use the power of the cookie for good.

    My 21-year-old daughter watched the video with me and said, “We should do that, too.” She especially liked using pictures to stimulate imaginations about how to decorate the cookies. I was touched by Michelle’s remark to the children about making the cookies a gift of love. Awww. . .
