Generous Helpings 2015: a giveaway!



If you’ve been following my blog for a long time, you know that May is pretty much my favorite month of the year. Not only is it my birthday month, but it also brings with it a plethora of fun activities: Cinco de Mayo celebrations, the Kentucky Derby, Steeplechase, Memorial Day cookouts, and Generous Helpings!

One of the best tasting events of the year, Generous Helpings supports Second Harvest Food Bank, so not only is it fun for your tummy, but it’s also a great way to do a little good for our community.
