This week is special and I have a Guest Blogger! Yay.
Readers, I would like to introduce Katie Anderson.
“It is Autism Awareness Month and so to commemorate I made cookies shaped like puzzle pieces. The puzzle piece is the Autism pride simple, symbolizing the diverse and mysterious nature of Autism.
Autism awareness is month is a special opportunity to educate the public about what is new in the Autism community. For information on the events currently happening in Edmonton, check out the Autism Society of Edmonton Area. April is also a good time to bake some lovely sugar cookies. For a great recipe that delivers delicious cookies that are chewy with a hint of vanilla, see below.
