Spring it on! With Sugar

The snow is melting and there’s no turning back now. What better way to say “Spring come on!” than with spring cookies. With my little helper Adora we hosted a cookie decorating workshop at Wildfire at Tysons Galleria. Highlights of the event is seeing so many friends and meeting new people.. and also benefiting Food for Others. FFO helps provide food for those who can’t afford it living in Fairfax County. I love being able to teach my daughter about giving back while she is young and so impressionable. She really had fun and felt she was doing something good. Thanks to everyone who came out!

 

 

 

Sweet taste of Spring

Families get a sweet taste of Spring while helping others! Dozens of parents and their kids gathered at Wildfire Restaurant  at Tysons Galleria for a Spring Cookie Making and Decorating Class benefiting a good cause.  Adora helped me with the hosting duties. The interactive playdate was led by Executive Chef Eddie Ishaq who showed the kids how to make cookies. The children then took on the fun duty of decorating. Congratulations to our top decorators Elsa, Elizabeth and Zachariah! A portion of the proceeds went to Food for Others the largest distributor of free food serving people in Northern Virginia!

Carving Pumpkins

It’s hard to think about getting into the Halloween spirit as many of us continue to clean up from Sandy. Before the storm hit.. we had the chance to partake in what’s becoming a family tradition– pumpkin carving. We were excited to once again host a special family event at Wildfire in Tysons Galleria. Part of the proceeds went to wonderful local charity Food for Others. Hope everyone has a happy Halloween!

Time to mark this thing up!
