Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts and a Virtual Food Drive

If you are visiting this page, you are probably a lover of delicious recipes and may even be a “foodie.” Life is meant to be enjoyed and isn’t food a large part of that? It is for me and I can’t imagine going without it.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am so excited to be hosting an online virtual food drive to benefit the more than 16 million children struggling with hunger in the U.S. As a mother of two beautiful children, this is a cause that gets to me on a personal level. I can’t imagine my children going without, and making delicious meals for them is the highlight of my day. I have often wondered about the children who go without and wish that they could be a part of my table as well.
