This year, Menu for Hope raised $91,188.00. It's a 50% increase from the total of last year. That's just mind-blowing, isn't it?
Our campaign couldn't exist at all without the help of my food blogging friends from around the world. This community has what made the campaign what it is today. Thank you so much everyone, you deserve a big round of applause!
A Big Huge Round of Applause, please! Thanks to all of you who donated, contributed in kind, spread the word and cheered the effort. None of this would have been possible without any of you. Thank you!

I was thrilled when Meeta invited me to write for The Daily Tiffin a couple of months ago. I will be writing a monthly column on a topic close to my heart, Parenting. My articles will focus on parenting an immigrant child, resources for gifted children, resources for parents of gifted children, girl cliques and a bunch of other stuff that is based on on my experience as an immigrant parent in the US.
I posted my first column for the month of January today: Girls Are Mean. So drop by and let me know what you think!
